  3. Say hello to Samsung’s SGR-1, a military robot that can detect a human face at a distance of 2 miles, and can fire its machine gun or grenade launcher without human operation.

    Robots are the not-too-distant future of war

  5. "Obviously, nothing out there is going to make it so that it’ll be enjoyable to get shot.  But with our suit, if you happen to get caught in a gunfight, you’ll at least look great running away."

    The bespoke bulletproof suit

     

  6. "The de Lackner HZ-1 Aerocycle — unveiled in 1954 — required the poor grunt to stand on a platform above four whirling blades, which he then steered by tilting his bodyweight toward those fast rotating shards of metal.”

    The Pentagon’s 5 most ridiculous projects

     


  7. There’s no denying it: The National Rifle Association has won — again. Even though more than 3,000 Americans have died via gun violence since 20 children and six adults were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary in December, the NRA has somehow managed to triumph. The victims’ families and gun-control advocates have lost. Forget an assault weapons ban — or any other serious gun regulation. It’s not happening.

  8. CBS News captured exclusive footage of the firefight between alleged cop-killer Christopher Dorner and law enforcement officials. After the shootout, which killed one deputy and injured another, Dorner fled to the woods and barricaded himself inside a cabin, refusing to surrender. Officials believe Dorner then shot himself and burned the cabin down.

     


  9. Publication and media outlets that “have assisted in the attack on Second Amendment rights” include pretty much every mainstream media outlet, with the notable exceptions of Fox News and The Wall Street Journal.

  10. You have hoards of people burning down cities and beating old women’s brains out everyday. They arrest people in England if they defend themselves, that’s on record. My God, you have a total police state. Everybody is fleeing the country because — you’ve had to flee, bud. Yeah, you fled here. Why don’t you go back and face the charges for the hacking scandal?
    — On Monday night, Piers Morgan tried to have a conversation with Alex Jones, the man behind a White House petition to have Morgan deported. What started with a simple question from Morgan (“Why do you want to deport me?”) quickly escalated into a heated tirade from Jones, punctuated by lots of finger-pointing and fist-shaking. When Morgan tried to interrupt, Jones hollered, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms!” He went on to mock the host’s British accent and, at one point, invited Morgan to a face him in a boxing match.
     

  11. 600 — Teachers across 15 states who have applied for a free firearms-training program

    18 — Days since the Buckeye Firearms Association in Ohio announced it was launching the program

  12. "The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," claims the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre.
    If you missed his speech, here’s a rundown of what happened, and how people are reacting.
