Guns For Disabled?

by Irma Arkus

New Scientist reports of a ridiculous patent: Constitution Arms in Maplewood, New Jersey, has applied for a “medical device,” which, in reality is a gun for disabled. Palm Pistol is apparently geared at people who cannot operate an actual handgun.

The audacity of the entire process undertaken by Constitution Arms is that the classification of the gun as a medical device would mean that those who purchase it would be reimbursed by the federal government.

I am literally pinching myself while writing this. And I believe that my left eye is twitching.

The best part of this (you mean there are good parts to this?!!!)is that the concept of the palm pistol has been around for over a century, as shown in photos above.

After this, Constitution Arms is reaching out to kids with “candy gun,” shaped like gummy bears, and loaded with explosive bearings. Just kidding. Or am I?
