The gun comes in pistol and rifle models and shoots a uniquely-coded DNA pellet that marks the target so that they can be apprehended at a less confrontational time for officers. According to the company: “On contact with the target the uniquely-coded SelectaDNA solution leaves a synthetic DNA trace mark that will enable the relevant authorities to confirm or eliminate that person from their involvement in a particular situation and could ultimately lead to arrest and prosecution.” SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO
Now, I’ll get to whether this is a good idea in a minute. See, I thought this DNA marking technology was a brand new thing, but according to the company a version of this DNA marking is currently used by ¾ of the UK’s police force to mark people’s valuables. For under $200 the police will come to your house, spread the specially coded “glue” that dries completely clear in just minutes onto the valuables you want marked. Then they slap a sticker on your window to alert potential burglars that the contents of your home or vehicle are protected by SelectaDNA. According to the company, when potential burglars see a SelectaDNA sign or sticker on property, they are 85% less likely to burglarize it.
