The Army announced today that it has adopted a new weapon for its fighting man in harm's way . It is an all new, composite device with a 7.62x51mm ten round drum fed mini gun capable of 3000 rounds a minute. Also included, but are not limited to, is a flame thrower , net launcher, rocket launcher, guided ground to air missile, ice maker , tire balancer , George Foreman grill, leatherman, socket set, laser cutter , 2-1000x telescopic sight with infrared night vision mode, porta-potti, 5 person tent , 48 inch LCD entertainment unit, cappuccino maker, eye wash, and 22 inch chrome spinners. The spokesman would not reveal a per unit cost, but insiders agree that a close estimate would be around  $1,300,000 a unit . When President Obama was asked for a comment regarding this new personal defense weapon , he stated it was " the bomb ". Defense Secretary Robert Gates later released a press statement correcting the President's earlier statement that the weapon system was indeed not a hand held bomb at all. He did however indicate that the system's developer is working on incorporating that option at the President's insistence.

Do you think they will legalize it for hunting? Maybe a built in game tracker trophy deer seeking bullet system added?

Like the Foreman Grill.  Kill it and grill all with the same tool.  Nice.  Just don't press the flashing red light.
