On the drive home I wondered if the ATF could legally regulate direct energy weapons like lasers.
After all, a firearm is clearly defined in legalese as a weapon that propels a projectile by means of an explosion.
Or would the tool fearing idiots at another letter to the alphabet soup agency? BATFEL? And when hand held sonic stun tools become a reality will it become BATFELS? How about projectiles thrown by means of centripetal force? BATFELSC?
Or will the idiots suddenly realize that all objects are just "found weapons" waiting to be used?
