Guns now Medical Device
« on: December 09, 2008, 06:40:33 am »

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has accepted a conceptual, ergonomic 9mm handgun ? designed for people crippled by arthritis, muscular dystrophy, or similar conditions that render them too weak to operate normal handguns ? as a Class 1 Medical Device.
This meens that if a Doctor writes a perscription for one of these firearms that Medicare will pay for it!
Now how cool is that?

my initial reaction was, "Only in america" but after reading the linked article ....

"so he called the FDA and was advised to register his company, Constitution Arms, as a medical device facility and list the Palm Pistol as a "recreational adaptor." The registration seemed to go through without any problems.

FDA spokeswoman Siobhan DeLancey said Carmel apparently got some bad advice from a representative of the agency.

And maybe he should have paid more attention to the fine print on the registration notice. It said: "Registering ... does not, in any way, constitute FDA approval of your facility or your devices
."

still not sure if "only in america" applies ????

The inventor is crying foul. "I would assume it's due to political pressure," said Matthew M. Carmel, from Maplewood, N.J. He said he's researching a possible appeal.
Before the "update" the FDA HAD APPROVED IT...so much for Obama and his fascist minded AG/cabinet and those who pull his strings and tell him what to do.
