Commuters Beware!

A road rager near you may soon have one of these.
The few, the proud, the likely insane, Metro-Atlanta bicycle commuters.

All those shell casings on the road would likely cause some tire punctures.

why bother with a cumbersome design like that?
The pros would knock out a vehicle like that with one RPG-7 or a land mine before it can even deploy.

That would also need a raging passenger.
Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

I decided to fight back, so I got one of these already.

The downside is that my commuting Trek now weighs in at about 1200 pounds!
