    Thumbs up 5 Real-life weapons from Sci-Fi

    Forget the light saber; the flashy sword is but a part of the fictional Star Wars universe. These five crazy, futuristic, and veritably frightening weapons may sound like they come from epic sci-fi flicks, but they're no mere figments of the imagination — they actually exist.

    Here's a current article on laser development (or lack thereof) in the Air Force.

    The only common sense gun regulations were written about 227 years ago.

    Ban gangs, not guns!

    I worked on laser weapons. So far they are unilateral disarmament.

    Not trying to be too facetious...

    Those things are kinda cool, but none of them are actually 'horrifying' to me.

    A ray gun that makes me puke? Sorry. Annoying but not horrifying.

    Then again, that article comes from Yahoo News.
    Always fun to read, but not my idea of top notch journalism.
    Cool article to read, though. I appreciate it at that level.

    Now where did I put that roll of tinfoil?

    No people should have to fear the will of their government; all governments should have to fear the will of their people.

    The "Pain Ray" is a bit of a concern. If the low-level dose causes burn blisters, what would a higher setting (you know the military has to have it) do?
    The worst things happen at the most critical times, and it's these moments that YOU need to be flawless, not the gun.

    Years of Communist oppression have made the Mosin Nagant impervious to physical damage.

    You can have free speech or you can have income taxes but you cannot have both.

    Set ray guns to "Fry".
    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?

    High tech, shmigh tech.

    All it would take is an old-fashioned sound truck with an endless loop of screeches from Nancy Grace.
