Skip to comments.News Site Claims Georgia Residents Can Buy and Carry “Pulse Rifles” Under New Law

Trust me, I triple checked that I wasnt reading The Onion when I saw this article come across my Facebook timeline.
First off, besides the content of the article (which well get to), I can almost write an entire article on the image that was included with the post.
The image is of a bunch of toy model guns, including a Pulse Rifle, you know a completely science fiction based firearm that doesnt exist, even a little bit.
The image is accompanied by a caption that reads These guns can be purchased anywhere in Georgia and carried into a church, bar, school or library.
Sigh. Besides the fact that the guns are toys and/or non-existent, the quote is just wrong. The part of HB 826 that addressed school carry was only for licensed teachers (there was a separate bill that seemed to allow school carry, but it will likely have to be clarified in court) and churches have to specifically opt-in to allow carry.

Ok with me....as long as they don’t allow phased plasma rifles. Especially in the 40 watt range.
"Hey, just what you see, pal."
Just don’t forget, never cross the streams.
Shouldn’t the law require that pulse weapons be set “to stun” only?
The author has a book coming out. Based on the title, this is likely a publicity stunt.
If theyre scary looking enough, that can be done by just seeing them.

Does it come in Phased Plasma, with a 40 watt range?
That’s a prop. The stuff I posted actually shoots projectiles.
The presumption is that these weapons are commonplace and readily available to be carried by the public.
That is clearly not the case even with changing some of the wording around.
What does it shoot?
Ripley: “Lieutenant, what do those pulse rifles fire?”
Gorman: “10 millimeter explosive tip caseless. Standard light armor piercing round, why?”
My take is that they are anticipating a future when they will be.
That is irrelevant with regard to what the gun grabbers are talking about what is available today.
