This speaks for itself.

Can you think of any legitimate reason for this tool of death to exist?

Well, maybe this video doesn't speak for itself. Editor Deena Stryker and others seem to want more. Here is what I noticed when I viewed it.

* The video obviously is intended to promote the weapon to the viewer. (Who among your neighbors should own one of these?)

* The demonstration extols the possibility of firing 18 rounds into the torso of a person in about 2 seconds. (It's a torso, not a bull-eye target.)

* There is a mood of thrill seeking about it. (No discussion of it's tactical limitations, safety features, etc.)

* No discussion of the legality of fully automatic hand guns.

* The narrator cautions us not to leave the selector in full-auto position whilst inserting a fresh magazine. (I presume that there is some risk it might start firing? He doesn't elaborate.)

There there are the issues the very existence of such a gun raises. It's simple, durable (he cools it by rinsing it with cold water). He points out that there are only a few parts that make it different from the semi-automatic conventional model. Presumable a clever gunsmith could rework the Model 17 to make it a Model 18. How long will it be before gangs in our major cities have such weapons?

I posted this to provoke a dialog. What do you, dear reader, think?
