(As you will see, this thread is part serious and part not. Feel free to respond to either, neither, or both.)
So, I am watching all of this lunacy regarding our God given rights to self defense, supported by our 2nd Amendment, and wondered what I will use for home defense (besides the hickory maul handle under my pillow) if we lose all gun rights. I do not see such happening without a civil war or something close, but we are seeing how people are losing their guns through the most ridiculous enforcement of the most ridiculous interpretations of the most ridiculous laws (like the guy who lost his guns because his 10 year old kid and some buddies were trying to figure out a harmless way to deal with a bully).
I have not given much thought yet to any range or projectile type weapons, but I was wondering about lethal energy stun guns. I poked around the Internet for about 4 minutes and did not see anything. I may have to research that and see if I can build one.
I was also thinking about flame throwers. I know you probably think I am kidding, but I was thinking something about the size of a typical aerosol can, like the cans of air used to blow out electronics or furniture polish (hmm...bad buy polish). It would not have much of a range, and it would definitely not shoot flaming material, only flames (though one that shoots streams of flaming material would be fun outside).
Though I really like the ideas THESE GUYS
have, I am not sure I could equip fast enough to be of any use. Would definitely make the bad guys think twice though.
I learned some pretty wonderful knife fighting techniques in the service, which are quite effective, but nobody really believes you when you just have a knife. I am looking for something that has major psychological effect. I really like what THIS GUY
made. If I were a bad guy sneaking into someone's house and saw that, I would know I chose the wrong house immediately and dive out of the nearest window.
What else is there? Ninja stars and Gauss seem like a match made in Heaven.
Seriously though, I am most interested in the lethal stun gun. It would not have to actually be lethal, but I would want no chance of someone fighting through the first shock. I want them down and I do not want them to get back up.
Edit: I just thought of another...like sticky bombs, but around m80 size and with a slingshot. Have to figure out something for the fuse though.
