U.S.—According to a new report, more e-cigs are being disguised as AR-15s to avoid a looming White House ban on the devices.
Upon hearing that President Trump was looking to ban the devices, vaping companies quickly began looking for ways to circumvent the new regulations. Then, they came up with a solution: design the vapes to look like a hunting rifle.
The disguised devices include a switch for selecting a fire mode, from semi-auto and burst fire to "Sick Vape." The devices are fully functional AR-15 rifles. Should a federal agent ask if you have an illegal e-cig loaded with high-capacity Raspberry Hurricane cartridges, you can just turn down range and fire off a few rounds to show them it's actually just an assault rifle.
These new e-cigs include a range of exciting new flavors, such as Gunpowder Bubblegum, Custard Cartridges, Strawberry Scope, and Maple Bar M-16. They taste like delicious fruits and candies and also have that gunmetal taste that gun nuts go crazy for.
Unfortunately, many of the devices included a bump stock and so were banned anyway.
