What an incredible display of power and weaponry. Those guys look pretty organized and disciplined.  I wonder how they would be on the battlefield?  They should put all that to good use and go destroy the taliban.

DEMILITARIZED ZONE, Korea – Security along the 160 mile wide DMZ has gone high-tech, as South Korea has quietly installed a number of machine gun-armed robots to serve as the first line of defense against the potential advance of North Korean soldiers.

When the robots’ heat or motion detectors sense a possible threat, an alarm goes off in the form of a siren or signal on the screen at the command center. The operator then uses the robots’ video and audio communication equipment to talk with anyone identified by the SGR-1 before deciding whether to fire the 5.5-milimeter machine gun.

My question is… When do we get these for the Mexican border?

The $200,000 price tag for each one seems like a steal of a deal. Heck if I were super rich I’d pick up a few right now to watch my stuff.

Check out the hilarious promo video:

The NRA-ILA issued a statement today referencing an article in the Charlotte Observer talking about the success of the recent NRA convention in Charlotte.

I agree, that the convention appeared to be a huge success, and all the reports I saw on it were very positive.  I wish I was there, not only for the incredible gun show, but also the great presentations.

Anyways…my gripe:

With that many visitors in town, you might be thinking that there must have been some serious problems — maybe some opportunistic criminals preying on preoccupied tourists making their way around an unfamiliar city.  Well, crime was actually lower during NRA’s convention — much lower.

According to the CharlotteObserver.com article, Captain Jeff Estes, commander of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s Central Division, said crime for the week was 45 percent lower than the same week a year ago.

For those who know that NRA members are among the most law-abiding of citizens, and that more guns often equates to less crime, then that figure should come as no surprise at all.

That is directly from the NRA press release.

I am all for the “More guns less crime” movement, but why try to correlate a drop in crime to the fact that the convention was there for 3 days? I really don’t think that had anything to do with it, considering the Charlotte Observer article goes on to say that crime in central Charlotte is down this year as a whole from 2009.  I highly doubt the criminals in and around Charlotte were sitting at home saying “Man, I should really be out there robbing and stealing.. but there are so damn many gun owners in town.  Too Risky for me!”

Maybe I’m just feeling in a nit picking mood, but this type of cause-effect reporting seems very Brady-esque. I expected more from the NRA.

The Clinton White House was absolutely convinced that pushing gun control would help it politically. … Then, in the 1994 election, we cleaned their clocks. They didn’t even see it coming. Sort of like a Chuck Norris roundhouse kick.

Like Glenn Beck, Palin also has a lot of good things to say. I’d still prefer she never be our president though.
