South Africa: Meet the 'gun with brains'
Submitted by: JT Hayes

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Pretoria inventor Nic van Zyl has developed what may be the world’s first 'intelligent firearm', a handgun that can be operated only by its rightful owner. It could make criminal abuse of firearms a thing of the past."

"It looks like a cross between a sci-fi raygun and an industrial high-pressure cleaning device. Bulky and block-like, it displays none of the black-metal menace inherent in most civilian firearms, and frankly, it is not a thing of beauty."

-------
Prediction: Look for the state of New Jersey to be contacting this inventor soon.

On Terror, Spying and Guns, Ashcroft Expands Reach

"With the addition of nearly 5,000 law enforcement officials from the firearms bureau, Mr. Ashcroft has again expanded the policing authority of the Justice Department, a hallmark of his tenure as attorney general. And with the fight against terrorism as his soapbox, he has pushed the powers of federal law enforcement in directions few thought possible before the Sept. 11 attacks. His reach extends not only to counterterrorism, but also to issues like the death penalty and gun policy, which he attacks with equal aggressiveness. Despite a years-long effort as a senator from Missouri to shrink government, Mr. Ashcroft has significantly broadened the reach of the attorney general, legal scholars and law enforcement officials agree."

"It's been about that long since the night 19 police vehicles filled this cul-de-sac off Covington-Sawyer Road and SWAT team members Tazered Shaun to the ground. The night Shaun was dragged to Harborview Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation, and sheriff's deputies confiscated his prized collection of 42 swords." ...

"...they took the collection that somehow brings this troubled man solace: the Civil War-era replica swords and the one that came up to his shoulder when stood on end; the 'Star Trek' Klingon war sword and three sets of Japanese samurai swords, including the smaller blades traditionally used for ritual suicide."

"The police even took letter openers. Shaun's a danger to himself, they said. The swords, while legal, were in the wrong hands, they said. He won't get the collection back without a court order."
