Quote of the Day, edition.

As part of their ever-so-slightly incredulous reaction to the story of David Williams – a man who took the time offered to him in prison to design and create several innovations in firearms technology (ones later used in the M-1 carbine*), they wrote:

If you think it’s a little scary that convicted murderers are allowed to manufacture and sell weaponry to the military from prison, please realize this was truly the best-case scenario. Because when you hear the phrase “invented a new super-rifle in prison” it’s usually followed by the phrases “bloodbath the likes of which the world has never seen” and “vowed revenge on Captain America.”

Although that’s more Marvel than DC.

*There is a dispute over this, but then there is a dispute about everything involving military history, technology, tactics, and/or methodology.  You get used to it; you’d better, because you don’t really have a choice anyway.
