Facility To Incorporate Gatling Guns For Security

ET (LOS ANGELES)- In an effort to beef up security at its nuclear lab, California's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory deployed an undisclosed number of Dillon Aero M134D Gatling guns. Each gun is capable of firing 50 rounds per second and has a range of over 1,500 yards. Lynda Seaver, the lab's Manager of Media and Communications stated that each weapon equates to ten to twelve security guards, however, community watchdogs fear these weapons could threaten the surrounding community and the lab's own employees. Along with Los Alamos, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is one of the United State's two labratories whose mission includes designing nuclear weapons.

Comment: The 1.3 square mile labratory site is located near a suburban area with houses directly across the street from the facility. Most other labs that design nuclear weapons, including Los Alamos, are miles from residential communities.
