"Phasers on Stun" - A lesson from the Future

In 1966, StarTrek taught us about multi-mode weapons where you choose between disabling and killing. 54 years later, we still haven't learned the lesson…

SEATTLE - June 3, 2020 - PRLog -- Osann IP Consulting today announced US Patent Number 9,921,018 for a multi-mode weapon, and a unique opportunity for one forward-thinking manufacturer. The patent covers a pistol capable of firing both non-lethal and lethal rounds, and also recording which ammunition type was fired, and in what sequence. Using this weapon, police will have a record that an officer fired non-lethal rounds first for an engagement where lethal force was eventually used. The weapon starts in non-lethal mode when first drawn, but can easily be placed in lethal mode simultaneously with drawing the weapon from its holster.

Echos of Ferguson
Although the death of George Floyd was not by shooting, it still represents excessive use of force on an unarmed person. Reminiscent of Michael Brown; Walter Scott; Breonna Taylor; and a hundred others, this tragedy shows that deadly force is still used by law enforcement officers in dealing with unarmed subjects. There is a better way – and a unique opportunity for one forward thinking manufacturer to produce a weapon that benefits both the police and the public.

Osann IP Consulting is offering a unique deal for the first legitimate manufacturer to make a firm commitment to produce a multi-mode pistol. That company will receive a perpetual, non-exclusive, and royalty-free license, at no cost, to Patent No. 9,921,018. The licensee must produce and market a multi-mode gun within two years, and achieve certain development milestones. Additionally, no competitor will be licensed during that same period of time, giving the first licensed manufacturer an exclusive 2-year head start.

There are currently many suppliers of non-lethal ammunition, and we expect those companies to be most interested in this opportunity. And yes, they would be manufacturing a gun with lethal capability, however if it prevents deaths of unarmed persons the effect is righteous nonetheless. Note that recent history has shown that Tasers are not an adequate solution. They are large and bulky, and officers don't even like to carry them (see the court record for the Ferguson case). A non-lethal solution integrated into the officer's primary service weapon is the only practical solution.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jul 2, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Muslim hajj pilgrims ascend Mount Arafat for day of worship

Jul 2, 2020

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims. One of...

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Jul 2, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

The Latest: UN chief calls for 'maximum restraint' in Gulf

Jul 2, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The Latest on the tensions between the United States and Iran (all times local): 10:45 p.m. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is again calling for "maximum restraint" in the Persian Gulf region and warning all parties that a new confrontation "would be a catastrophe." U.N. deputy spokesman Farhan Haq reiterated the U.N. chief's plea to avoid any escalation when asked Thursday for Guterres' reaction to Britain saying Iranian vessels tried to block one of its oil tankers in the Gulf. Haq said the U.N. hopes all nations "will take steps to avoid" an escalation and confrontation....

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Jul 2, 2020

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...
