Police Officer Firing "Ballistic Knife" Across Room
Original caption: Washington: Propelling it via a spring attached to its blade, Nassau County (N.Y.) police officer Bob Lucas fires the "Ballistic Knife" at a target across the room under the eyes of lawmakers. Watching are Rep. Mario Biaggi (C), D-N.Y., and Sen. Alfonse D'Amato (R), R-N.Y. The super knife, which can be ordered through the mail and is able to penetrate bulletproof police vests, is advertised to "kill safely and swiftly." Biaggi and D'Amato are sponsoring bills to ban the weapon.
