Police Drones In North Dakota Can Now Be Armed With Tasers

Police drones in North Dakota will soon be armed. But they won't be armed with guns, instead they can be armed with tasers, guns that fire rubber bullets, teargas, and other  "non-lethal" weapons after a Bill in the State House passed. This means that police departments in North Dakota will soon have another tool at their disposal and have drones do some more active roles besides surveillance and monitoring.

Backyard Skirmishes Just Got More Competitive With The Nerf Rival

I always look at Nerf Guns with amusement. This is not belittling Nerf users as I think it's awesome for casual gaming and when shooters, whether airsoft or real steel, get their trigger fingers itchy but are somewhere that such guns are not applicable (office, home, party, etc.) and need to scratch their itch. Also, Nerf Guns won't get you into trouble as they obviously look like toys to keep that nosy neighbor from calling the police while you play backyard skirmishes.
