Pulse Rifles now available in Georgia

Trust me, I triple checked that I wasn’t reading The Onion when I saw this article come across my Facebook timeline.
First off, besides the content of the article (which we’ll 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 doesn’t 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.

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

And here is the screen capture, committed to the Eternal Interwebs:

At least it was not a phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range. Now those are truly dangerous.

  1. Obviously a moron, he cannot even bother to find pictures of real guns, let alone real guns that real people could buy. Even sticking with the real counterparts to the pictured models, quite a few of them are not available to purchase, because there is no civilian model, or the gun is in development. But lies are all they have, so who is complaining?

    1. I’m OK with banning the MA5B. Terrible weapon. The BR55 was a marked improvement.

      Shame they had to nerf the M6D down to the M6C, but on the other hand, that was hands-down the best weapon in Halo 1.

  2. me: “Hey wait a minute! *squints*

    me: There’s something funny about that picture. The highlighting and detail on all those guns makes it look like they’re about 2 inches long and made of solid plastic.

    *A couple of Google searches later*

    Bingo.

    Introducing Marauder Gun Runners, a specialty website providing custom or reprint runs of props for action figures. The image itself was created by the owner of Reasonably Intelligent Rambling(who should be getting a pingback from GFZ very soon if not already– Enjoy the new readers, Tom) to showcase some of the guns he’d purchased for his own action figures, and is being used…

    Oh my!

    It’s being used without permission! Fancy that.

    So yes, technically every gun in the image can be brought into any church, school, library, or other federal building, but I’d be hard-pressed to figure out how you’re going to hurt anybody with them.

      1. Pshhh. That’s nothing.

        These pulse rifles are available to anyone in BRITAIN! Even with all their strict anti-weaponry laws!

        30-inch range! 5 strength AND 5 armor piercing! That’s enough to send a Space Marine crying home like a little girl!

      1. You Gun Monger! You are part of the problem with guns in this country! you have an Iron Pipeline…wait…plastic pipeline? Never mind

        😀

        PS: ETA on full size, fully functional Plasma Gun?

      2. I certainly do know where I’m going to point people who are interested in guns for their action figures in the future. I already knew there were companies that did that sort of thing with Lego pieces, which is one of the things that tipped me off to go looking.

  3. Found your problem: You were looking at the daily kos, which is a tattered rag of a blog with less integrity than MSNBC
