I’ve had the evil thought that the best place to put a weapon for assassination, would be in a TV camera. It’s the only way the target would happily put himself right in your sights.

Probably been done in the movies, but I dunno.

That was done in Afghanistan just before 9/11

I hope this assasination doesn’t have the same implications.

I can’t tell if your joking or not, but yeah, it has been done over there.. Ahmad Shah Massoud was the leader of the Northern Alliance (more or less allied with us) and killed by suicide bomber with explosives in a camera.

short story idea.

politicians and any news person has to sit in front of shotgun cameras when speaking on air. the cameras are self-aiming.

viewers have buttons on their remotes that say “Shoot”. If enough people push their buttons, the shotgun camera fires.
