They won't. They will sell them to other governments and they will be used against our soldiers in a future war as usual.

I do not like it at all and I myself would never use it for hunting or target shooting, it would take all of the fun out of it. However, I would demand that they make it available to the public, otherwise we would just be giving the government another very powerful tool that they could use to threaten us. The potential of this bullet both fascinates me and scares me.

If govetrnment has it, we should have it. Enough said!

Every weapon system from grenade launchers anti tank rockets aircraft helicopters guns should be available for sale to the public. The second amendment does not say arms=single shot hunting rifles. Right to keep and bear arms means everything from a pocket knife to a b2 stealth bomber.

I agree Jon, Its about legal ownership vs abusive ownership. The outcomes should be the key factor in what is legal not the devices themselves. A car is the most hazardous tool on the market today. They have proven to be the biggest killers of Children, Teens and Adults and yet in some states, a kid can drive at 15 years old but cant own a gun until they become an adult.

I like this bullet, Reminds me of a tiny wireless TOW System. Its nearly as cool as a laser which is the next most dangerous weapon we wont be allowed to own once they compact the transmitters and power supplies better.

We need to remember that eliminating legal choices is neither reasonable nor effective at minimizing tragedy, only education and a strong policy of rewarding bad conduct with an even worse punishment has ever proven to work.

Criminals never check the laws before they procure their weapon of choice, those of us that dont commit crimes follow the law but are truly paying the price because the crooks have convinced the regulators that laws prevent crime not people and punishment.

I have been responsible for and exploded/ fired lots of Automatics, explosives, Missiles, Mortars and other very dangerous weapons. So many that you couldnt put all of them and their ammo in 10 semi's. Infantry Soldiers are not likely the brightest of all bulbs on the shelf but in 21 years of playing with these things, the only injuries Ive ever seen were barrel tattoos from smokin hot MA deuces (you dont do that more than once)!

So far, the most dangerous weapon I have encountered is the human mind, it is so much more universally dangerous than any weapon Ive ever encountered. Look at Tim McVeigh, highly trained, war tested and he will go down in history as one of the most devastating domestic terrorists in our history. His choice of weapon, A U-Haul, diesel Fuel and fertilizer not a AK, Uzi or Guided Bullets.

I think it's great. It may be the end of long-range shooting contests like silhouette but being able to hunt using a "meat-seeking missile" would be great. Ol' man Browning would roll over in his grave. :cool:

This ideas ridiculous i dont even think they should invent it they shoudld stick with regular bullets...

purehavoc 07-20-2012 07:31 PM

at what point can you really call this a bullet anymore ? Very cool idea yes, but very scary in the wrong hands

AIKIJUTSU 07-20-2012 08:01 PM

And the doodad that shoots it would hardly qualify as a "firearm". It is more like a rocket launcher.
