    Remeber way back, when eBay banned firearms and Gunbroker.com became a thing?

    Well, I suspect full30.com is about to become a thing.
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I saw videos of this idiot on the NYC TV news today, and it certainly looked like a gun to me from the way he was brandishing it on pedestrians.....

    Yup!

    You wanna commit suicide by cop?

    That's one way to get it done!

    Kinda reminds me of this guy:



    Turns out he was holding a vape.



    When someone does stuff like this and gets shot, my reaction is that the police were entirely justified shooting the fool.

    It is worth adding a footnote that Rock Hill is the next town over from the Fort Mill, SC Cabela's.....

    South Carolina congressman draws gun at constituent meeting

    Associated Press
    April 7, 2018

    ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) -- A South Carolina congressman pulled out his own loaded handgun during a meeting with constituents Friday to make a point that guns are dangerous only in the hands of criminals.

    Republican U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman placed the .38-caliber gun on a table during the "coffee with constituents" meeting at a Rock Hill restaurant, news outlets reported.

    "I'm not going to be a Gabby Giffords," Norman said, referring to the former Arizona congresswoman who was shot outside a grocery store during a constituent gathering in 2011.

    Giffords' husband, retired NASA astronaut Mark Kelly, said in a statement that Norman is "no Gabby Giffords" and noted that his wife has dedicated her life to ending gun violence.

    "Americans are increasingly faced with a stark choice: leaders like Gabby, who work hard together to find solutions to problems, or extremists like the NRA and Congressman Norman, who rely on intimidation tactics and perpetuating fear," Kelly said.

    Norman said he'll display his gun at future constituent meetings.

    "I'm tired of these liberals jumping on the guns themselves as if they are the cause of the problem," Norman told The Post and Courier. "Guns are not the problem."

    School teacher Lori Carter of Charlotte, North Carolina, said she thought the move was contradictory because Norman didn't know if someone there had mental health issues.

    "What was to prevent me from leaning across the table to take that gun?" she said.

    More South Carolina:

    South Carolina state House Republicans introduce bill on secession over gun rights

    A trio of state House Republicans on Thursday quietly introduced a bill that would allow lawmakers to debate seceding from the U.S. if the federal government confiscates guns purchased in South Carolina.

    Something for the architects to consider using when Ross-Tech does the blueprints for HQ2?????

    Claridge introduces ballistic panels for educational interior environments

    PRESS RELEASE
    04/13/2018
    Claridge Products

    Pioneering visual display and writing surface manufacturer Claridge Products today announced the launch of PRO-TACT® Ballistic Barriers, an extensive range of bullet-resistant, modular, space-dividing panels for public spaces where increased safety is required, according Claridge marketing director Kurt James.

    “PRO-TACT Ballistic Barriers provide a level of enhanced safety that bridges the gap between body armor and structural blast protection,” James said. “And they’re as unobtrusive as any commercial office dividers.”

    Designed for secure environments such as military installations and recruitment centers, airports, worship centers, courtrooms and schools, PRO-TACT Ballistic Barriers integrate discreetly into any interior environment while providing enhanced protection for a building’s occupants and visitors.

    PRO-TACT panels are available in stationary and mobile versions, meet ASTM E-84 Class A and have been GREENGUARD-Certified for indoor air quality. Both the stationary and mobile models (and all joint connections in the stationary model) are UL 752 Level 7 and 8 listed and independently tested to NIJ Level 3. For certain ballistic materials, UL 7 presents a greater threat than either UL 8 or NIJ3, so Claridge chose to achieve dual UL listings.

    All PRO-TACT Ballistic Barriers are bi-directional and contain a high-hardness steel core coated with 100% polyurea elastomer to lessen ricochet, spall and splatter. Stationary panels are available in standard heights and widths ranging from 4’ (H) x 2’ (W) to 6’ (H) x 4’ (W); mobile panels in heights and widths from 4' (H) x 3’ (W) to 6' (H) x 4' (W). Finished surface options include porcelain enamel steel markerboard or Designer Series Fabric tackable surfaces in a choice of 10 colors.

    About Claridge Products

    Since its founding in 1947, Claridge Products has grown to be one of the world’s largest and most respected woman-owned makers of US-made visual display solutions. The company was instrumental in guiding and influencing the collaborative process, and today, some 70 years later, Claridge serves and supports a wide range of customers in specialties ranging from architectural design and construction to business, K-12 education, healthcare, higher education, and other industries.

    Meh. That would just give an attacker something to hide behind when we return fire.
