WippitGuud: I could've swore someone came up with a portable shockwave generator... knock people down from like 50 ft or something...

No, that was just me. I had tacos last night.

jso2897: Insatiable Jesus: kingoomieiii: numbquil: Less than lethal is the appropriate term. The problem with a lot of these weapons is that someone would be quicker to deploy them and use less discretion than they would with a firearm. "That guy looks like he might be up to no good. Quick zap him with the occular laser. Who cares about the damage to his eye or the truth as to whether or not he was actually up to no good. It's non-lethal. No biggie".

That's an actual problem that needs to be dealt with even today. Police are trained to use Tasers as a non-lethal counterpart to their sidearm, but too often they're used as a replacement for "patience".

It won't be too long before the standard response to demonstrators will be bursting everybody's eardrums or tazing them en masse with some vehicle mounted Tesla coil.

I'm personally fond of the subsonic pulse weapon that makes everybody shiat their pants.

Would that have worked at OWS? Fox said they all did that anyways.

A magazine is Guns and Ammo, which anyone who knows the difference between a clip and a magazine faps to.

Thank you, government, for wasting brazillions of taxpayer dollars on useless weapons to be used against imaginary threats. We have nukes... no foreign army is going to invade. We don't need ANY new weapons.

The grenade launcher taser thing is neat.  Can they make that practical for a handgun size?
