SPOKANE, Wash. — Still angry about the idea of an Islamic cultural center opening near Ground Zero, a group of Idaho gun enthusiasts decided to fight back with a new line of pork-laced bullets.

South Fork Industries, based in Dalton Gardens, Idaho, claims its ammunition, called Jihawg Ammo, is a “defensive deterrent to those who violently act in the name of Islam.”

The bullets are coated in pork-infused paint, which the company states makes the ammo “haram,” or unclean, and therefore will keep a Muslim who’s shot with one of the bullets from entering paradise.

“With Jihawg Ammo, you don’t just kill an Islamist terrorist, you also send him to hell. That should give would-be martyrs something to think about before they launch an attack. If it ever becomes necessary to defend yourself and those around you our ammo works on two levels,” the company said in a press release earlier this month.

I dont know yet whether this is incredibly intelligent or incredibly offensive. Or maybe both...

I don't really think it works like that...

I wouldnt say its stupid at all. You would fight religious extremists with their own beliefs.
The only question is whether its immoral or not.

for one, christians don't believe in islam, so for a christian to buy the bullets would be meaningless. second, being shot with pork laced bullets wouldn't mean that the muslim would be going to hell according to islam. third, the killing of others probably would if heaven/hell existed, meaning the terrorists will be going to hell anyway. fourth, promoting violence and/or racist(/islamophobic) views causes more trouble than it does good. and so on and so forth.

The idea is that it's a deterrent, so it wouldn't be meaningless just because they don't believe the same thing. The rest of your points, though, I can't much argue, except that the terrorists wouldn't be going to hell according to their religious beliefs.

Anyone here actually familiar with the Islamic law and koran (I think that's the bible equivalent?) to confirm if this would send them to hell?

It would not. The verse actually just says that swine is forbidden because it's a 'dirty' animal. They can't eat it, I don't think that it somehow being forcibly injected into their body would cause an issue. The Koran doesn't specifically address what happens when you get shot by a pork infused bullet; it just says swine is forbidden. All in all, I think this is mostly just a joke that is being taken too far.

I think it says not to eat it in the Bible as well, but that's more or less been ignored.

QFT, unless the bullet is stuck in the digestive system, norishing the target and becoming one with it.

was it Indians who refused to use cow-grease on their weapons, and made a huge revolution over it, even though they didn't eat it at all? anyways, same sort of logic may apply here (if any logic can be applied to terrorists).. but really, why not?

@ Zak - it's not about what Christians believe in (besides that there are quite a few contradictions), it's what they believe others fear, likewise it's not about Islam either, it's about the "terrorist" version of it, and I think the damage is already done as far as /islamophobic - this won't do much either way

Hmm, If the bullets aren't coated with pork, do the Islamist terrorist, go to Heaven?
Just wondering.

What if we capture them and force feed them pork? Would that scare them off?

But what happens if you force-feed bullets down their throats at 3000 f/s?

They would most likely be dead before they were capable of actually ingesting it.

    Glad to hear you're okay! I only knew about your Github cuz I tried to follow some of you when I was learning how to program, but didn't understand any of it so kind of quit paying attention to what anyone does on it

  • The Helper The Helper:
    that sucks i bet they are expensive
  • Varine Varine:
    Not really
  • Varine Varine:
    The entire hot end is like 20 dollars, I just can't get anymore until next week
  • Varine Varine:
    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
