the cliche characters who couldn’t shoot straight

My son Perry puzzled over why bad guys in action movies, say shooting from a chopper, always spray the bullets a second behind the heroes running for cover. I explained that villains are always bad shots, because they’re busy being villainous–they don’t practice shooting. When they should be practicing shooting good guys, instead they’re drinking, ruining the lives of women, stealing. Bad guys don’t use their time well. They should spend more time practicing target shooting. But, you know…it’s a bit dull.
