Tactical Nuclear Road Rage

From the street, the GMC Yukons customized by Dillon Aero look like standard-issue SUVs. But behind the tinted windows lurks a fire-spitting dragon: a Dillon Aero M134D Gatling minigun. Designed for VIP escort, the Yukons are outfitted with a roll cage, steel-plate armor and puncture-proof fuel cells and tires. And though weighing around 9000 pounds, the vehicles can exceed speeds of 100 mph

(forthcoming supercharged models should be able to go even faster).

Sad they concentrate on the gun, when the real amazing thing there is a powertrain that'll move five tons that fast, and the suspension that allows it to be stable.

I wanted one until I started to think about the mileage.... :^)

A few questions...

...Do the pop-up roof panels swivel with the gun, or are they fixed? (Would seem to create a built-in blindspot).

...What if your parking garage in Minnesota has a sign that "bans guns on these premises"?

...How much fun would it be to pull up a Wellstone-plastered Prius and say, "Give me the Grey Poupon, Snowflake"?

... Does it come in red?

Technically, you cannot legally ban guns in a parking garage, unless it's federal property. So if you see those, you can rest assured that you can legally take your firearm in their.

Keep in mind as well that an Unconstitutional federal law also makes it a crime with minimum penalty of 30 years in jail to use a fully automatic weapon in a crime--in addition to whatever assault, murder or other charges you face.
