Remember the innocent college girl killed by Boston Police after the World Series in 2004? Her name was Victoria Snelgrove and she was killed by a rifle made by FN Herstal. Today, the Boston Globe reports that FN Herstal manufactures a pistol that fires rounds so small and fast they'll penetrate any body armor the police have.
Disingenuously, the company says the gun is for sporting purposes. It isn't. The gun is made to kill people; that's all. Here's a sample ad:
"This 20-round pistol fires a 5.7mm bullet that will defeat most body armor in military service around the world today."
Here's a review that describes cartridge as "specifically engineered to defeat body armor."
FN Herstal should be ashamed to sell this to the public, but it's a company that seems to have no shame.
