Another one for the "Ya can't make this shit up" Dept.
I wish this was a joke, but I am being 100 percent serious. In a video posted on the Fox News website yesterday, Allison Barrie, a “defense specialist” and consultant, makes the case for using a water bottle cannon to save kids’ lives. Barrie, who claims to be “very committed to scouring the United States for the latest technology our military is using that our students might benefit from,” recently came across the BCB Wall Breaker. This is essentially a high velocity, air-pressure powered cannon that shoots a five gallon water jug through walls.
Barrie said she was “really excited” to see the technology demonstrated outside MacDill Air Force Base near Tampa, Florida last week. The conference she was attending is designed to demonstrate weapons for special forces operatives.
“Active shooter situations just erupt, so we need to be able to source things from your immediate environment and respond to needs on the ground,” Barrie says in the video.
