Am I the only person that found the tone and subject matter slightly strange for a professional engineering magazine?

Ok, lip service was paid to the ethics and anti-gun violence side but that appears to be added just to give some appearance of balance.

Surely a balanced article should have highlighted the alternatives such as the Taser and whether their use and other alternatives could be extended so that killing was not the only outcome

The article was about what's happening in the USA. Common sense does not apply there when it comes to firearms.

It's the dark side of engineering! Perhaps also one that will discourage young people, unless they are fascinated about how to kill people more efficiently. Probably we need to separate such work from the mainstream and designate people who do such things as MilEng rather than CEng.
