What say DUers to this idea for the upcoming Sedition Riots...

Normally, I'm all "free speech, civil rights, limit the cops", but for the upcoming 2 or 3 assaults on our legitimate government, why not use sound weapons?

"A student who went to photograph a Black Lives Matter protest was warned that New York City police might use a sound cannon against demonstrators.
"My friend said, 'If you hear this, plug your ears and run,'" Anika Edrei recalled.

So, when the NYPD fired a Long Range Acoustic Device, or a LRAD, at the demonstration in 2014 in Manhattan, that's exactly what Edrei, 24, did.

After police used the device at the demonstration, which was over a grand jurys decision not to indict NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo in the killing of Eric Garner, I experienced a pretty strong migraine and dizziness almost immediately, Edrei told NBC News in an interview.
I remember sitting down on the side of the street after I had gotten away and feeling very confused, said Edrei, then a photojournalism student at the International Center of Photography in New York City."

1. That's fine if it works quickly and on a crowd

If the MAGATs come at Joe Biden with assault rifles, I suggest some more solid projectiles, just as a backup.

2. I'm as bloodthirsty as anybody, but the video of all those dead MAGAs piled up...

...like cordwood would give other countries the idea that we are just another Banana Republic.
Oh... wait.... we are, at this point, aren't we?
Those pics and videos would forever be a rallying point for the RWNJs.
I'd certainly go along with snipers using selective targeting. Take out the leaders... lots of leg shots to get people screaming... that makes balls shrivel up inside.

3. Yes, actually, that was my thinking as well

Pinpoint the ones that constitute the real danger. When they fall, holding their legs in pain, the rest will run as fast as they can in the opposite direction.
