Australian gun company Metal Storm is doing its best to bring law enforcements desire to incapacitate the general public to greater lengths.According to Wired, the weapons group is producing a 12-gauge shotgun called the MAUL that will accept several electrically charged cartridges and fire them up to 30 yards away in quick succession.
A reload of all five cartridges apparently takes two seconds.
Taser founders Tom Smith told the guys at Wired his thoughts in development: “We developed the XREP to provide an extended range for situations where a close approach was dangerous or not possible.”
Wired calls it a “remote crowd control of pain.”
