    Date Line January 13th 2003.

    The President of the United States in conjunction with the University of California at Berkley has announced the completion and initial deployment of a revolutionary new technology. This Technology is called the “ The LifeSaverâ€.

    Simply put it is a machine that emits a wave form energy that interacts with Nitrate based Explosives and Propellants. Once exposed to this “energy “the effected material explodes. This new device is able to control both the range (between point blank and 200 miles) and direction of its effects. Since all modern conventional weapons use either Propellants or Explosives that can be remote detonated by the Lifesaver device, all notions of War, Law Enforcement and Crime will from this moment on be irrevocably changed. Even Tactical weapons like ICBMs have been rendered obsolete by this new technology.

    All Federal Buildings, Key infrastructure and schools already have the device installed and will be protected. Research is underway to reduce the cost and size of the devices to a degree than anyone will be able to purchase a “personal shield’ in short order.

    The plans and theory behind the Lifesaver have already been transmitted to every government on the planet as of five minuets ago. Like it are not the world is different than it was just moments ago. No longer will any child need fear a landmine, since all landmines can be cheaply and quickly dealt with. In fact we have two hundred teams already on the ground in the third world nations that have been the battle grounds of developed nations for generations.

    We no longer need fear the criminal with a gun since that gun is now far more dangerous to him than it is to the rest of us. Hostage takers, armed robbers, all need to find new lines of work. We have in one stroke removed the teeth from the various terrorist movements world wide.

    I encourage all Americans to ponder how this will change all of our lives. To that end I have directed that this announcement be transmitted to everyone so that we can all begin to come to grips with how our lives will be changed with out guns and bombs as a consideration. I have also instructed the NSA and the FBI two Government entities already tasked with monitoring the American people to collect your thoughts and concerns expressed on this matter here in your now obsolete forum. I want to know how you think this will impact you and what direction you want America to take in the brave new world.

    George W. Bush
    President of the United States

    Fertilizer in the fields might explode :eek:
    So what kind of weapons will ATF carry to dissuade people from building their own devices of this kind? Crossbows?

    If we had it, we wouldn't advertise it. Think of the tactical advantage we'd be throwing away. Go to war. The other guy drops his gun. We force them to surrender at gunpoint (hey, ours still works). Zero blood except for accidents.

    That went out a bit early, it should be dated March 32, 2003.

    Good guys just have to make sure the bad guys have their guns pointed in a safe direction before they deploy the device and make the powder "explode".

    So that story I heard about Washington D.C. being reduced to a smoking crater wasn't a joke?

    Gotta wonder what it'd do to an internal combustion engine. And hey... isn't this whole war about preserving the sanctity of the internal combustion engine?

    Uh... bigjim, gotta ask: where'd you find this?

    Perhaps add certain anti firearm organizations

    I think I'd rather be around a farm if given a choice of the two camps.

    If they somehow managed it, I might spend more time practicing with my selfbow. Unlike my ultra-modern .45, it'll penetrate body armor like butter.

    Works on nitrates, hmmm?

    Well, it might take "Them" a while to identify my use of phosphates or iodine compounds...

    How about on pure Nitrogen? That's used inside some telephone jackets, to keep moisture from getting inside the lines...:D

    Ya know what powers the impact wrenches at Nascar pit stops? Nitrogen, from those all-so-common bottles. If the pure gas is unaffected by this "ray", it will make gas-powered projectile launchers popular for the drive-by crowd.

    Ah, the possibilities are endless!

    "Officer, we've had a holdup!"
    "What sort of weapon, ma'am?"
    "A nail-gun!"

    Nualle, I presumed he wrote it himself. If he didn't, the style is very similar.

    I wrote it but.....

    This is the premise of a VERY anti-gun book I just read called the trigger.

    The book mainly was about the the moral and political struggles that the Government dealt with as a result of the changes that resulted from this new weapon. Make no mistake this thing would be a weapon and a powerful one.

    I just thought this might envoke some interesting chat regarding what our world would be like with out guns. Would the haves still be able to safegard themselves from the have nots? That type of thing.

    In the book the NRA put up a hell of a fight try to keep a lid on this thing but in the end government classified it as a weapon protected by the Constitution and was able to distribute the device. Used our own rhetoric against us.

    Good book hard to put down and even harder to tolerate.

    No more nitrates? You just caused half the world's population to starve.

    Is that a Viking ship on the horizon again? So much for progress!
