And Ammo With Lead

The US military has begun testing “smart rifles” that can easily hit targets 1000 yards away.

Now they just need Rules of Engagement that allow them to shoot something.

    In the future there will still be wars, but only if those who declare the wars are willing to join the first wave marching into battle.
    This is based on the perfectly logical premise that those who are willing to kill must also be willing to die, and if they’re not willing to die, they have no right to order anyone else to kill and die in their name; and in the practical circumstance that the troops are better armed and far more numerous than the leaders, and they will insist on it.

    The funny thing about these rifles is that the Army doesn’t have a requirement for them, so we can’t buy them. The best military minds never imagined that it was possible, so they didn’t write a requirement (I suspect they will soon correct that). Private industry invented, developed and marketed these without a dime of taxpayer investment.

    Smart rifles make all of the other rifles feel stupid.
    Yet, our troops will never get them. Hollow point ammunition is not allowed for use against our enemies… its lethality and what it does to the human body is considered inhumane. Yet, Homeland Security has purchased over a billion rounds for use against our own citizens!

    That is outcome inequality!

    The government must mandate each magazine have a diversity of smart and dumb ammunition.

    Affirmative bolt action!
