Creepy as the concept might be, someone actually built an Internet-controlled network of web-accessible cameras and shotguns aimed into a food plot on a Georgia Power Company right-of-way last fall.

A utility contractor encountered the setup, snapped a few photos and reported the odd apparatus to the Georgia Wildlife Resources Division, which in turn notified the U.S. Office of Homeland Security.

LOL now that’s lazy.  I give them an A for ingenuity though. Gotta love our connected world.

Shouldn’t have been too hard to track the owner given they should have his IP address.

The right to bear arms remotely… That’s a new one.  Those Benelli guns aren’t cheap… Not the type I’d want to leave unattended anywhere.

This city, half an hour’s drive north of Atlanta, is unique: it is the only place in America where it is compulsory to own a gun. In 1982, Kennesaw City Council unanimously passed an ordinance requiring households to own at least one firearm with ammunition. The law states that its purpose is to “protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants”.

The article is definitely worth reading – HERE

Oh and surprise surprise, the crime rate is low there relative to similar sized towns near by. I wonder why? *sarcasm*

Good to see perfect trigger discipline in all of the pictures for a change.

Smyrna, GA – Residents living adjacent to buildings owned by gun manufacturer Glock Inc. are challenging the company’s request to encroach on the city’s required stream buffer necessary for future expansion.

Under the proposal, Glock would clear out and level 25 acres of heavily wooded land on a portion of its property that lies behind an existing company building on Highlands Parkway. To do that, the company needs to work within the area running around a porter of streams that is usually protected to preserve the environment.

Like I always say… sometimes you gotta bulldoze a few trees and disrespect some streams to get a good pistol made.

Atlanta, GA. – A Fulton County mother was outraged Wednesday that her autistic son was suspended and charged with a felony over a picture he drew. The 14 year old is a student at Ridgeview Charter School in Atlanta.

Full Story – HERE

So this 14 year old kid  with autism is charged with making “terroristic threats”, and yet a full grown man who taught his students a geometry lesson outlining the assassination of our president gets off basically scott free?  Yea.. that makes sense :roll:

This autistic kid and the 13 year old finger gun girl should get together for a friendly talk.  Hopefully she wears mitts and he doesn’t bring a pencil though.  No telling what could happen otherwise.

Poor kid… Like he already doesn’t have enough to deal with being autistic.

Georgian-Conflict-Chest-Wound-intro

Two people that are very lucky.

1) This first example is from the Georgian Conflict:

*Click here for GRAPHIC PICTURE*

Since it was in a war zone, and judging by the size of the wound, I would guess the damage was done by either a 5.56mm or a 7.62mm.  It entered the middle of his neck, and then possibly came out about an inch later, then went back in, only to exit again creating the large wound channel.  The wound in the middle though might not be related.

Zooming in on the wound *Click Here GRAPHIC PICTURE* , it definitely looks like it opened up into his chest cavity.  It’s a miracle that his heart (considering it’s on the left side) or lungs were not damaged enough to kill him.

45-70-chest-wound-intro

2) Say Uncle posted an article today titled do not try to catch a dropped gun, where a guy got shot with a 45-70 and was apparently not in that bad of shape because it ended up being a really bad flesh wound.

This guy and a buddy were sighting their rifles in. One of the guns was leaned up against the 4 wheeler he was standing on. The gun started to fall and I’m not sure if his buddy grabbed it, or something on the bike caught the trigger. Either way, he caught a 325 grain .45-70 round right under the collar bone. I think it goes with out being said, how lucky he is to still be here.

The big hole around his shoulder blade is where the bullet entered and it traveled under his skin and exited right there on his neck, above his spinal cord!  –LINK

Seems like the only thing these guys really have to worry about now is an infection.

COMMENT

According to AR15.com member FREEFALLE7 this is a real sign at Fort Benning Georgia:

Wait, is there a Fort Benning in a province called Georgia in Canada?

Oh never mind… I guess gun registration is now mandatory here in the U.S.  too, especially on Army posts. :roll:
