Shut Down Heckler & Koch By Entombing The Factory In Concrete

Haters gonna hate, and apparently plot terrorism:

Not sure if THAT incredibly stupid.. or just trolling.  ShutDownH&K is seeking crowd funding on indiegogo to fly helicopters over the factory of HK and drop a sand cement mixture over it to seal it up.  Maybe the definition of terrorism is different in Germany, but that sounds like a clear cut threat to me.  I’m sure we will see the indiogogo campaign go *poof* any day now.

All else aside, I don’t think they really thought through the logistics.  Can you imagine how much cement it would take to cover a factory?  The quantity of cement a helicopter could carry?  That would be 10s of thousands of helicopter trips.  My guess is if this actually did end up going down, they would be on helicopter trip #2 and an employee would walk out of the HK factory with one of their snazzy 40mm grenade launchers, line the helicopter up in the sights, pull the trigger, helicopter goes down in flames, employee dusts his hands off and clocks out for lunch.

You might remember ShutDownH&K from their witty “Not In Nottingham” H&K x Robin Hood spoof.  Maybe ShutDownH&K is just bitter because H&K thinks they suck and they hate them.

Thoughts?

Note to self: In the future pronounce Sarcophagus as Sa-ga-fag-us.

well, they would need to buy their own helicopters and train their own pilots. But none of it makes sense, you just going to do this and hope no one notices while it happens? You would need every helicopter in existence as i doubt anyone would get a second trip in.
I hope that voice is computer generated as it is the most annoying i have ever heard.

i literally laughed.

1. OH NOES OUR FACTORY IS ENCASED IN CONCRETE……we can blow ourselves out with guns, or build a new factory.

2. im sure the german government (who probably uses guns made by HK) would certainly approve flight plans for “dumping concrete on a production facility)

3. the G3 is 21st century technology? so THATS why we shouldnt be allowed the MP7, ITS 31ST CENTURY TECHNOLOGY YALL!!!

The max sling load of a Chinook is 26000lbs. That means it could carry approximately 500 cubic feet per trip. That’s just shy of 2 full cement trucks… A random search for operating costs puts the CH-47 at around $1800 per hour for the newer models. I’m not sure how accurate that is. I’m a helicopter pilot, but I don’t fly any big iron….er, aluminum.

Either way, no way in h*** some hippies could pull that one off.

Da fu?

Also isn’t this you know… Terrorism? Minding the fact that their idea is ridiculous and makes no sense.

I’m surprised they didn’t propose building giant catapults to fling giant globs of jello into the factory’s air vents. With jello in their machines those evil H&K Henchmen are sure to have trouble running them! Furthermore why not release a bunch of Mice into the plant to chew on all their computers wiring and power lines. That’ll hit ’em hard.

Or just drop ONE MASSIVE CRUCIFIX on the plant, and bring your inflatable mobile church to put it in front of the CEO office, and all those evil motherf*ckers will burst into flames. Only one flight needed…

Crazy plan, I’d really love it to be true, and to see how much they’ll raise. Why do these morons don’t try to do something useful out of their time? Or at least target something significant, an AK factory for example… If you do something stupid, at least do it seriously.

Their indiegogo is only asking for $4,300 USD. I’m not sure they could even make a phone call with that. I think it’s a “get $4000 quick scheme”.

The end result of you trying to cover a facility like this in cement would likely be the facility’s security team coming out and turning you into burning wreckage and red paste.

And if you’re stupid enough to donate to this, well…I have some bad news.

Oh yeah that and gun manufacturing is a legitimate business practice and guns aren’t evil, therefore this group’s very existence (and their diction) is completely invalid.

Got to keep those guns from “escaping” somehow. Surely this is some crazy new viral marketing campaign from HK? If not, and this group of (presumably German) people actually think this could work logistically, I no longer believe that the United States has a worse education system than any of the Europeans.

Some translation of the German updates:
This “performance” isn’t about the weapons per se, but about doubious exports by HK, so that HK-weapons turn up in unstable regions and regimes world-wide (except the G3, they were exported years ago, also several countries have production licenses)
It seems they got an art grant or something that will match money they get through the funding, so in the end they’ll have ~$8000.
One of the updates said that they’ll have to pay 2000€ per helicopter, so if they reach their goal they’ll have 4 helicopters.
Also, it seems that HK informed the local police who are investigating the art group.

dave w October 10, 2012 at 09:08 am

so lets say they get 4 helicopters, assume they are chinooks, 4×500 = 2000 cubic feet. Going from google maps, if you somehow get a magical uniform spread of about 1 inch depth you might just cover everything. If no one notices what you did until the cement cures you will at least have made the janitors next few days a pain in the ass.

This is how they penned in Chernobyl: By pouring cement on it from helicopters.

Do these maroons think that the HK factory is radioactive? That the guns they make there can’t be touched without protective gear?

That’s taking hoplophobia to new levels.

For real this shit..

First of all, it’s destruction of private property on a very very large scale.
Second; what company that offers airlift services is going to do this?

And finally, ain’t there like thousands of other factories?

People seriously need to figure out what they want to do with their lives..

Have you considered the wisdom of attacking a factory with helicopters when that factory builds weapons used to shoot down helicopters? The HK factory is not the only place that HK weapons are made; there are several factories here is the USA that make copies of HK G3 rifles along with factories in Greece and Argentina. Maybe you should reconsider your plan which even if successful would merely make that factory bomb proof and not halt the production of weapons.

Interesting take. I have 9 HK’s and consider them among the finest tools that I own.

Or perhaps you’re yet another internet parrot that has never owned an HK? Polly want a cracker?

In my decades-long experience, HK neither hates me or thinks I suck. But don’t let my actual first-hand experience ruin your childish, uninformed, internet meme.
