    A new weapon

    I laughed today when my wife got back from Walmart.
    She went out pick up halloween costumes.
    My 8 yr old daughter wants to be a devil. So they got the costume and the mandatory plastic pitchfork.
    When she got home and I looked at the receipt, my jaw dropped. The little, cheap, plastic toy pitchfork was labeled on the receipt as a "weapon" ...... I don't know, I just thought it was funny..... Geeze I'm surprised they didn't check the wifes ID, and have her fill out the proper paperwork to purchase this weapon....

    I guess she couldn't board a plane with it. Or take it to school or the Post Office.

    Be careful, if you let your daughter carry it during trick-or-treating, you could be charged with letting a minor have access to a weapon.

    Personally, we need to have background checks on pitchforks so the little devils don't get their hands on them. There should be a ten day cooling off period, incase h-e- double hockeysticks does in fact freeze over.

    On another note, are you going to install a quadrail add an Eotech sight and a laser?

    Can an eight year old get a permit for such a weapon? Have her get some training to avoid an AD.

    If I were her, I'd consider a more concealable weapon over a pitchfork....like a regular fork.....or the can't-be-detected-on-an-airport-X-ray-monitor...the plastic spork.

    Actually I did something similar as a kid to quite an interesting effect. I had one of those 2-piece deals. I had a long black plastic handle(I wonder if that constitutes an Assault-fork?) and red for the fork section up top. I separated the two and put a few chemlights in the fork end. Superglue and 15 minutes later and I had a "Glow-Fork". Unfortunately I was way too ingenuitive as a child.... My poor gradeschool teachers must have had desk drawers full of my classroom "inventions".
