Riddle Them With Bullets

Headline: New super-gun to be tested in Feb

WASHINGTON, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Next month a new high-explosive munition will be fired in Singapore and then tested again by the U.S. Army, heralding what may be a sea change in weaponry: a gun that can fire 240,000 rounds per minute.

"I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones." -Albert Einstein

Until then, Albert, praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.

Probably not, it would have too much 'kick'. It would likely be mounted in some fortification and operated by computer as one of those 'fire at anything that moves' weapons.

ALthough the "kick" if oriented correctly would be able to brake or propel the bus per Newton's 3rd Law.
