Pretty nifty non-lethal yet still creepy weapon. It shoots a concentrated blurst of Everybody Loves Raymond at it's target, creating the feeling of being briefly scalded by boiling water. This forces anyone in it's path to turn back or risk being further fried. Might be useful for controlling unruly mobs in Iraq or possibly at Arge shows.
It's better than killing people in unruly mobs, but I kind of took umbrage to the signs the "volunteer mob" were carrying during the demonstration. Was it really necessary to demonstrate the raygun by zapping people carrying signs with slogans like "End the War" and "Peace Now"?
Well, that's what they're going to use it for, right? They use actual bullets against crowds that carry weapons, but until now have used rubber bullets against hippies. This one has a better vibe for that kind of thing, however.
Well, in the segment they did say they were reluctant to deploy the units to Iraq, so they probably want to keep them on the homefront to use when people start rioting after the upcoming market crashes. That's probably how they'll round people up to haul them off to those domestic concentration camps Haliburton built.
