Great Guns!

Great Guns!  Look at what someone e-mailed me!

Have you ever wondered what all those extra SUVs are in the Presidential or VIP motorcades? You know, the ones with severely tinted windows...the SUV's  that no one gets in or out of.

Well, wonder no more. They have a 6 barreled 7.62 mm mini gun. They fire over 4,000 rounds per minute The wipers need to be run to remove spent casings when the weapon is firing. This video is from the company that makes this happen. The vehicle is also armor plated.

Listen to this baby go off.

By the time that someone sends me an e-mail with a video like this one, one that I have never before seen and think “Wow!”, it has usually been quite widely circulated.  Nevertheless, it is quite amazing.

In another video that I found the explanation and description of the mini-gun tells that it fires 3000 rounds per minute, or 50 rounds per second.  4000 versus 3000, who’s counting?  Certainly not the fish in the barrel nor whomever else upon whom the firing is directed.

Watching these guys turn a barrel into a pile of lace and to turn a sea bass into a shredded mouth can be exciting and fun and cool.

But for what purpose have these guns really been designed?  More importantly, why are they added to armor plated SUVs and cruising along in presidential and VIP motorcades?

Is this cool?

These vehicles are not designed to prevent an assassin from killing the president or a VIP.  They are not designed for stopping even a group of assassins.  The reaction time is far too slow.  The design is ineffective for such purposes.

So for what have they been designed?  For what purpose are they cruising in the motorcades?

Their design is to mow down an army.  The rate of 3000 rounds per minute is for turning large numbers of people into Swiss cheese or lacy undergarments.

Who are in the crowds awaiting these motorcades?

On whom are the SS and the other “protectors” expecting to use these hidden guns?

More importantly “Why?”

More videos of the Dillon M134D Steel Gatling Gun. (If the videos do not appear, click on the "Media" and "Videos" tabs.)

For the gun enthusiast who enjoys ripping to shreds various inanimate targets, this is a really cool gun.

For our military personnel who face enemies who seek to do them harm, it is a truly great gun.

For the crowds who gather in the city streets to view the presidential or other VIP motorcades . . . ?
