Up until this point, the shenanigans we've been talking about were mere child's play. Now it's time to step up to the big leagues with the TEC-9 semiautomatic handgun. Favored by street gangs and the Columbine shooters (who used a modified version), the gun was even featured in RoboCop. So what makes it different than any other gun? Couldn't anything be used as a weapon in the hands of a man with an evil heart?
NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
Well, the fine people at Intratec (TEC-9's manufacturers) advertised that the gun was "resistant to fingerprints." Oh, and they also played up the fact that it had a threaded barrel, where you could fit a silencer on it. You know, for home defense.
Unfortunately for all of you hunters who wanted to shoot some deer without fear that the other woodland animals would go CSI on the gun and take revenge, the TEC-9 is now banned. Intratec went out of business a few years ago (they were found liable after a guy used the gun in another mass shooting).
Honestly now, if the Second Amendment doesn't protect our right to do a drive-by without getting caught later, then why do we even have it? Now our only choice is to get that fingerprint-removal surgery that is now popular among criminals. Or, you know, wear gloves.
