That Should Be Illegal: A Flying Drone With Handgun

drone-with-a-gun.jpg

This is an ad for a smart phone protective screen cover or something but that's not what's important. What's important is that they mounted a handgun to an octocopter and were firing it at things. I tried tipping off the local authorities to the threat but they told me to stop calling. Dammit, you're suppose to serve and protect ME. But do you? Noooooooo, you just arrest me for being drunk in public and peeing on things I'm not supposed to. And even that's a double standard because like, if it was my dog peeing on that car you wouldn't have arrested her. You know what? I'm gonna stop paying taxes.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to ChaosLex and Botchy Loopy, who agree if we should be mounting guns to anything it ought to be the moon to project us from alien invasion.

    It seems like it would be really hard to track an assassination performed by a RC helicopter.

    Seriously, right? Who wants to place bets on how long before we see a news story about the first RC-controlled gun murder?

    What is that thing shooting at the phones? I don't give a shit what you have as a phone cover. Even a .22 caliber would put a hole through it

    That is a Taurus Judge, its a revolver that shoots .45 Long Colt and .410 shotgun shells. It looks like they were using a .410 shell loaded with #12 shot (1.27 mm) , which is already severely weak and just made even weaker by the distance of the shot and the reduced velocity from the short barrel length. Honestly that round is only supposed to be used for snakes and rats within a few feet. From that distance a standard bb gun with a few good pumps would do more damage.

    Hell you can even tell how weak the shot is from how slowly the phone falls over.

    I thought that might be the judge. I have never shot one. I also thought that it was possibly one of those bird shot 22 rounds. Either way, that was pretty dumb

    Is the sub gonna be writing for long?
