Send Your Local Rep a Message the Old Fashioned Way With This Tar and Feather Gun

Busting out a shaving cream pie to make a point is downright unwieldy, but Instructables has plans up for a toy pneumatic gun that can shoot cartridges filled with tar and feathers. Now that just makes good sense.


The Portable Pneumatic Variable Payload Delivery Device is made of cheap materials (PVC pipe, a lot of tape, etc.) and is great for close-range goo blasting. The truly trigger-happy can even fill a cartridge with flour to make cleanup virtually impossible.


Now, this device might seem a little conspicuous for a town hall meeting, but any angry mob will tell you that nothing stimulates productive political discourse like a little burning molasses to the face. [PenfoldPlant's Instructables via Dvice]

Yes, they will shoot you for things like this.

I always thought tar and feathers was a silly little prank. In reality, it isn't. For tar to pour it has to be very hot. Once it is poured on the skin it is nearly impossible to remove. So, think of third degree burns, a painful bout of infection, being skinned alive, and eventually death. So...not as funny as it sounds.
