New gun for seniors could be subsidized by Medicare


rawstory.com

A New Jersey company says they have gotten federal approval to market a gun to the elderly and hopes to have it subsized by Medicare.

Constitution Arms says its Palm Pistol will aid seniors with arthritis who would otherwise have trouble pulling the trigger. The device allows individuals to shoot by squeezing with their thumb.

The company's president Matthew Carmel says its "something that they need to assist them in daily living," and has applied to have the gun approved as a Class 1 medical device, the same designation given by Medicare to walkers and wheelchairs.

Palm Pistol retails for $460.

Wow, senior citizens getting armed now? this is interesting especially if they get it subsidized by medicare ... the elderly won't be messed with anymore .... interesting that's about all i can say about this i guess this is a good thing for the elderly but also quite scary i mean some of the elderly can't control their hands that well and if this was subsidized and they got one i'd be steering clear of them ... wow this is kind of scary haha ... is this a foreshadowing of what's to come? post thoughts...
