"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.
