    New type of weapon

    I have an idea for a new type of weapon. It's a simple idea, non-lethal and I'm very surprised no one else has thought of it...or maybe they have and found it to be illegal. I'm going to get a preliminary patent, but before I try to build them, how would I find out whether or not it would be legal?

    ahh....let me guess; you will have to kill yourself if you tell anyone anything

    or is it that you will have to kill them after you tell them...

    wait, you can't kill them cause its non-lethal

    another fine mess you've gotten us in
    ---------
    to find out if its legal---use it and get sued
    l1a1 and gunthorp like this.

    After you do lots of searching on line, you're probably going to have to talk to a lawyer or two.

    Good luck.

    Swear us all to secrecy, & then let us know what it is & somebody may have an idea whether your new weapon is legal or not.

    Might give us an idea,what you think is a new idea is very possible either already being used,or would not be an effective non -lethal device

    Talk to a patent attorney (sometimes call themselves "intellectual Property Lawyer") to see if it is patentable. Second, check with the BATFE - get a written letter (not that they can't change their stand on the drop of a hat...). Then start checking with individual states - my be legal in some and not in others.

    Trying to patent something isn't worth it unless you are a huge corporation with lawyers on retainer who are prepared to defend the intellectual property. You would be better off finding someone to manufacture it and someone to market the finished product and make your money as fast as possible. As an individual without backing as soon as you put a good idea on the market there will be imitations, (if it was a good idea to begin with), and it will be up to you to defend the patent with your checkbook. That will become cost prohibitive rather quickly.
