Alex Jones, who on his program often expresses his interest in science fiction and, in particular, Star Wars, discusses laser weaponry in the video above, which also features a real life Star Wars laser battle, on a miniature scale.

“When A New Hope was released in 1977, it blew audiences away worldwide,” Jones says in the video. “Who could imagine humans piloting spacecraft in laser battles? Little did they know NASA was already deploying unmanned drones in space, and testing laser weapons systems, now partially declassified.”

The video resolves in a time-lapsed laser “battle” in which Star Wars lego figurines are blasted and melted in a small-scale mock battle.

  1. ” It begs the question: will laser weaponry be protected under Second Ammendment rights as well?”

    oh for pete’s sake. since when has our 2nd amendment rights been construed to cover *anything* with so much as the remotest speck of possible effectiveness in terms of even slowing down infinitesimally the activities of a tyrannical government? really. i’d want a helluva lot more than an AK-47 (which to my understanding is illegal for regular US citizens to own) to consider myself on any type of even footing with the US Military. That’s why i’ve never understood the people who get so het up about their 2nd amendment rites re: gov’t tyranny – hello, you ever go down to the library and take a look at Jane’s Defense weekly? Damn impressive and no you can’t have any.

    IOW if those things work at all well, no way us mere plebes are getting our hands on ’em. /rant off (for now 😉 steph

  2. I don’t know if Alex Jones should have a right to own fire arms.

    I just know he shouldn’t have a right to own Lego figurines 🙁
