This New Clip-on Gun Attachment May Save Lives with Non-Lethal Bullets

It can spell the difference between life and death in a shootout.

There are so many news stories centering on fatal shootouts between police and suspects that it’s commonplace to read about these needless deaths.

In many dangerous confrontations, police officers aren’t given much choice when they’re shot at. In some instances, there is loss of life.

A new invention from a California-based company, Alternative Ballistics, can bring down death statistics from these confrontations. They’ve developed a clip-on gun attachment called The Alternative.

It uses non-lethal bullets to serve as a warning.

Cops usually fire warning shots at armed suspects to get them to drop their weapons. If this proves unsuccessful, they shoot to defend themselves or kill. The Alternative allows officers to fire a bullet to incapacitate suspects, not kill them.

The new accessory is an easy-to-attach clip-on that appends to the muzzle. It doesn’t interfere with any of a handgun’s functions, including sight and other accessories like flashlights.

Simply attach and go.

The Alternative comes with an orange plastic support with a proprietary metal alloy metal sphere at the end. The orange plastic support ejects when the gun is fired.

It’s designed as a single use accessory.

When fired, it serves as a non-lethal warning. The bullet embeds itself in the side of the alloy ball attachment, which then travels at only one-fifth of the bullet’s speed.

That is not to say the impact won’t hurt. It will. A whole lot. However, it won’t penetrate skin, giving suspects a second chance to cease and desist.

It’s literally an alternative to saving lives.

The Alternative comes at minimal cost, it’s easy to install, small enough to carry, and always within easy reach. As a non-lethal alternative, it’s an ideal complement to regular firearms training.

Alternative bullets on the right target, real rounds on the left.

If you think about the fatal option of using regular rounds, wouldn’t The Alternative be a more humane choice?

Beauty Blogger Born With Facial Tumor Redefines Beauty And Emphasizes Self-Love

Inspiring words from a beauty blogger born with a facial tumor.

By

Some of us associate beauty with how one looks good with make up on, eyebrows on 'fleek' or how your chic outfit complements your favorite Mac lipstick. But beauty isn't only about a person's physical attributes. Rather, it is how you see or carry yourself--about feeling beautiful regardless of what other people think or say.

Despite being born with a facial tumor called cystic hygroma which left her unable to speak, YouTuber and beauty blogger Marimar Quiroa is redefining beauty and inspiring us to love and accept ourselves despite our imperfections.

The Latina make up enthusiast shares that she 'once hid from strangers and even undergone multiple surgeries to shrink her face and mouth.'

Watch the Miracle of a Syrian Baby Being Born After His Mother Got Hit by a Barrel Bomb

The baby was born after a barrel bomb almost killed his mother.

By

For the past days, news channels and social media platforms have all been ablaze with the news of recent bombings in Aleppo, Syria. Omran, the child who was rescued from the rubble after Aleppo was hit by an airstrike, became the new face of the war's adverse effects on humans. This time, a new video has surfaced - that of doctors performing an emergency C-section on a pregnant woman after she almost got killed by a barrel bomb.

The unidentified pregnant woman was one of the victims of the latest bombing in the war-torn town of Aleppo, Syria. Nine months pregnant, she was en route to the hospital when the airstrike hit.

Racing against time, doctors fought to save the life of the unborn child, who they fear was gravely injured due to Mayissa being struck by shrapnel in her belly. Mayissa was also barely holding on, with a broken leg and arm, and a steadily weakening pulse. Despite having only basic medical equipment and facilities, doctors and surgeons rallied to save the life of both the mother and her unborn child. ...

Honest Security Guard, Who Could Barely Afford Lunch, Returns a Bag Full of Money

This security guard finds a bag of money lying around at the airport where he works. But instead of keeping it for himself, he decides to return it.

Different people have different responses to temptation, especially when it comes to money. Some people are guilt-free with ripping off honest citizens, while others would be more than happy to call out a cashier if they've been given too much change.

In the case of an upright citizen from the Philippines, though, he was more than willing to give back a bag of misplaced money despite having financial troubles himself.
