    Goofy : Catapult to launch Marijuna into the US from Mexico

    Got to give them credit. I'm now wondering if it will be used to launch people across the border as well. Shoud the good folks of Washington, DC now ban the manufacture, sale and use of catapults?

    Pot-firing catapult found at Arizona-Mexico border

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Drug smugglers trying to get marijuana across the Arizona-Mexico border apparently are trying a new approach - a catapult.

    National Guard troops operating a remote video surveillance system at the Naco Border Patrol Station say they observed several people preparing a catapult and launching packages over the International Border fence last Friday evening.

    Tucson TV station KVOA says Border Patrol agents working with the National Guard contacted Mexican authorities, who went to the location and disrupted the catapult operation.

    The smugglers left the area before they could be captured, but Mexican officials seized about 45 pounds of marijuana, an SUV and the catapult device.

    Naco is about 80 miles southeast of Tucson.

    Yes we should ban this 1307 technology; especially if it is deemed to be an assault catapult and or tactical in any way..

    Yes. If you watch the goofy movie "Robin Hood, Men in Tights", there is a scene where the Sheriff of Rottingham is developing a "Stealth Catapult."

    That's what the drug cartels should have used. We would never have seen it. It could be dubbed the "C-117-A Stealth Trebuchet."

    That will be the talking point; you know how every time our law makers want to ban guns they mention that they "hunted" as a kid... to make them seem legit... well now they will say we need to ban them .... I enjoyed pumpkin chucking as a kid; but these modern cats have no place in pumpkining... they are good for one think only not pumpkins.... with hi cap bands and custom etc....

    To avoid straw catapult sales-The BATF will now institute a rule where multiple catapult sales are required to be reported. It is being strongly resisted by catapult dealers and the National Catapult Association. Liberals decried the influence of the catapult lobby and called for "sensible catapult controls"...
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    We're going to need to have a BATF inspectors at our Punkin Chunkin events to inspect each and every pumpkin for anything concealed inside. The druggies should have used the sub-compact model, not as easy to see.

    I believe the one defining characteristic that should determine whether a catapult can be classified as an "assault catapult" is the presence of a "shoulder thing that goes up" and a 33-round ammo cart.

    As we know, these devices are used by domestic terrorists, who buy them through the gun-show loophole, and take them into Mexico.

    It's time for some common-sense catapult control...

    I always open carry my catapult. It is so hard to find pants that are eight feet bigger than my waist at WalMart, plus, it takes too many cows to make the belt. Sometimes people look at me funny, but it is my Constitutional right to bear arms and they should be happy that I choose to defend myself and my family.
