The Disposable Camera as Terror Weapon?

Disposable Camera Ban

This one’s for terrorists and the chaps who catch them, especially the cops who catch them.

Did you know that disposable cameras can easily be turned into deadly weapons capable of seriously maiming people? In just 15 minutes a potential terrorist can make a lethal stun-gun out of it to deliver a massive 330 volts. Some sick websites provide instructional materials on how to make the killer stun-gun using the camera’s battery and high-voltage flash capacitor, and some wrapping foil.

The innocent-looking disposable camera can of course easily pass through airport security. But with this revelation, that could change.
