control

I thought the ATF frowned upon any electronic trigger control mechanisms,  but it appears it would only apply to semi-autos according to the USC 26 definition of a Machine Gun and not a bolt action like the rifle used in the video.

It’s too bad you couldn’t suck on that mouth thing, or blow into it to fire… I’d have a lot more jokes for that.

Also, is it just me or is the video have a real fake “infomercial” feel to it?

Weapons control systems are designed to detect and deny entry to unauthorized people carrying weapons into secure areas.

From NovaComm, one of the leading manufactures of these systems:

The access control system consists of a bullet resistant aluminum frame enclosed by bullet resistant glass, and a bullet resistive ceiling. The frame is divided into two separate compartments: one for entry and one for exit. Passage through each compartment is controlled by a set of two intercommunicating doors. Entry doors and exit doors are totally separate systems. Control of the doors is achieved through the use of exit devices, magnetic locks, infrared sensors, and a metal detector.

NovaComm’s Access Control Vestibule can distinguish between magnetic, non-magnetic and mixed alloys weapons.

One of my blog followers, Israel, sent me the following pictures from his local bank (University Credit Union) in Miami, FL:

And a closeup of the sign:

Israel, who is a concealed weapons permit (CWP) holder is not impressed with this recent “upgrade”, and decided to write the bank president a letter (viewable here).

My guess is that systems like these are a fairly good deterrent to crime.  But at what cost?

The reality is that just because “metal” guns and weapons are not allowed in the bank, doesn’t mean there are not countless other ways for a criminal to wreak havoc inside of a bank. Composite knives, bats, knunchucks, chemical weapons, leather whips, a pool ball in a sock … the Glock 7 (I kid about that one)

I know the bank is considered private property, and we all have the choice whether or not we want to deal with places like this. The easiest thing to do I suppose is just switch banks if you don’t like their policies.  It’s too bad it has to come to that sometime in order to stay safe.

Thanks Israel!

Arming all the passengers on flights?  With the right choice of ammo, works for me!  Sounds like Archie could have prevented 9/11.

As you know i’m a big advocate for arming everyone that isn’t a criminal (or mentally unstable). In the “gun free zones” the criminals obviously have the upper hand.

You heard the man… if a thug or criminal tries to steal his buddy John McMillan’s yard signs the next shot isn’t going to be a warning!

If you haven’t seen the original video and the parody check out these links:

  1. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.
  2. Gun laws affect only law-abiding citizens.
  3. When more households have guns for self-defense, crime goes down.
  4. In high-crime urban neighborhoods, guns are as easy to get as fast food.
  5. Repealing Chicago’s handgun ban will dramatically increase gun crimes.
