    Time to snipe a few of our politicians. I say the best way to turn things around in a positive way is to kill them at the polls. You must vote and vote the bums out.

    More feel-good tech that gives people a false sense of security (a lot like the naked body scanners @ the airport and the COBIS fired case technology).

    And whoever named this system gets an award for epic fail.

    I find it hard to believe that only 20% of gun violence is reported. :41 seconds in to the video.

    There is always a way, and I can find 2 already, but I will reserve them for myself for the time.

    Then they can send a predator drone to the source of the gunfire and perform an air strike.

    Did you note that it can detect if its coming from a car and that it can follow the car, if it can do that can it be trained to spy on the population by an opperator at a remote location, I suspect that it is "BIG BROTHER" being smuggled in on Trojan Horse under the guise of protecting the people from alleged gun related offences.

    Once you know how it works, this trinket is very easy to defeat. Nothing man made is fool proof, but if you can get the sheep on board with spending the money, why not?

    Those wartime contractors have to diversify now that one of the wars is wrapped up.

    They've had this $h!+ in Chicago for years now. It was odd the first time I saw little kids paintball the $h!+ out of a couple of the street corner survelliance cameras that would pan to follow gunshots and suspicious citizens. Then two ghetto cruisers came in from opposite ends of the street, drove to the middle of the block and conducted business between themselves. Fifteen minutes later a cop car showed up to check out the blind cameras.

    Sorry guys....I couldn't watch that flow of total freakin' ignorance long enough to see the end. This has to be about the stupidest waste of taxdollars I've seen come down the pike since treadmills for shrimp.

    What a total waste of air space,,,,so it knows "where" the shots came from,,,,you must assume that the weapon is stationary and has not moved in the 5-15 minutes for police to get there,,,,just llike the TSA,,,,giving a false sense of security, to get taxpayers to fork over more money.....

    The device was shown on TV during the war in Bosnia as a tool that could identify the building and even the window where a shot had been fired. Using accustial analysis from directional microphones interfaced with a computer/plotter.
