Via Say Uncle:
Law enforcement professionals know that they always need to expect the unexpected. That a routine traffic stop could become un-routine at any moment. The UZI Tactical Pen takes something as trivial as a pen and turns it into a potential life saving tool. The most unique feature of the pen is that it employs the UZI DNA Catcher on the crown of the pen. The sharpened crown on the end can be used to jab or poke an attacker, which will not only cause extreme pain, but it will also collect the aggressors’ DNA which can be used for future identification.
So, if a routine traffic stop gets out of hand, reach for your pen rather than your sidearm? And I’m not sure about you, but unless this has a cap, how do you cover the end? Hopefully not by using your thumb and clicking on the DNA Catcher (which is a nifty euphemism in itself).
