A Roman candle without a fuse

Describing it as a “Roman candle without a fuse,” Mark Serbu takes a look at the science behind the maniac assassin’s electrically-fired black powder SXS shotgun tragically used in Japan recently, a country with probably the strictest and most efficient gun control in human history.

Keep in mind that the mad scientist/gunman was an unemployed 41-year-old unemployed forklift driver whose only martial background was a short stint in the Japanese Navy as a Quartermaster striker.

I’ve met and talked to Mark dozens of times and he is probably one of the smartest guys in the gun industry, so his take is interesting.
