Encrypter Ammo

Today’s gun news comes coutesy of Slashdot and NewScientist.com. The article in question is titled “Password Protected Bullets” and it has to be the single DUMBEST thing I’ve ever heard. The short version is that they want to put a PIN number on your ammo and force you to enter that on your gun before you shoot. Either that or they’d sell ammo that was pre-coded to work with your gun. So if you went to the range with a friend and wanted to give them a few rounds, you couldn’t.

All this, and just a “little” more expensive (read: alot) all for you and yours saftey!
