I Don't Like this Headline at All

But I need the pistol.

FOXNews.com - Easy-to-Use 'Palm Pistol' Aimed at Elderly, Disabled - Science News | Science & Technology | Technology News: "Constitution Arms, a small arms manufacturer based in Maplewood, N.J., is taking deposits for what it touts as the world's first ergonomically designed firearm.

Intended for use by the elderly and disabled, the single-shot 9-mm weapon looks like a giant bean grasped in the palm of the hand.

The barrel points out between the user's fingers. You 'pull' the trigger by pressing on a thumbed button at the top.

'Point and shoot couldn't be easier,' states the blurb on the product's Web site."

This is a terrible, terrible design. An accident looking for a place to happen.
