Lenco Industries, Inc., designer and manufacturer of armored police vehicles, has introduced the BearCat EOD "BombCat" armored response vehicle for EOD and IEDD first responders. Designed with input from veteran explosive ordinance disposal experts with decades of field experience and knowledge, the BombCat offers superior functionality in addition to the proven life-saving protection of Lenco's armored vehicles.

In addition to technicians, the BombCat accommodates a large tactical robot like the Andros F6A, which can be readily accessed using a fold-down ramp at the curb side door or deployed from a hydraulically controlled platform located at the front of the vehicle for effective, close-range delivery to the threat. The BombCat's spool storage reel manages the robot's fiber-optic cable while technicians monitor progress via computer monitors from the safety of the vehicle's interior. Secure radio signals can also be utilized to transmit robot audio and video feeds.

The BombCat also comes equipped with an optional roof-mounted, 24X zoom camera with high-intensity scene lighting that can be raised up to 10 feet for enhanced visibility. A thermal image camera, CBRNE equipment, and advanced communications sensors are also available to meet operator needs.

All Lenco armored trucks are built with Mil-Spec steel armor plate certified to defeat multi-hit attacks from 7.62 AP / .50 Cal BMG, while ceilings and floors provide enhanced blast and fragmentation protection. Ballistic glass windows offer the multi-hit defeat, and also provide superior clarity. Additionally, BombCat models are built on heavy-duty commercial truck platforms, which allow up keep and repairs to be performed at OEM dealers and truck centers greatly reducing maintenance costs versus other specialized vehicles.

JFK Guns Magazine April 1960 From the Know your Law Makers Section
John F. Kennedy
By calling attention to a "Well Regulated Militia," "the security" of the Nation and the Right of Each citizen "to keep and bear arms," our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of Gov. tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important.

Obama wants a National Civilian Security Force. Sounds like Hitler's SS or Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard. The reason we have the 2ed Amendment is for things like the BombCat being used by Evil people!

Obama is NO JFK!
