That article about machine-guns in space?

I had missed it on ElReg.

You know, you could, like, do your own research? Like Slate did?

"Brian Weeden, a space policy expert at the Secure World Foundation, told me in an email that the report that submachine guns will be built on the satellites is dubious and appears to have been a miscommunication."

Using Le Point as a primary source, who does that mistake, FFS... I hope it was not intentional for the clickbait value. Please, don't do it again.
