[New York] NYPD will begin testing a new high-tech device that scans for concealed weapons
The NYPD will soon deploy new technology allowing police to detect guns carried by criminals without using the typical pat-down procedure, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Wednesday.

If something is obstructing the flow of that radiation, for example a weapon, the device will highlight that object, Kelly said.

Stop and Frisk get a new face.
Sorry, but that cell phone, inhaler, car keys, wallet, anything but the color of your skin... looks like a gun... Let me toss out your 4th amendment rights and go ahead and search you and question you on the validity of why you are walking the streets in the most populous city in the United States.

5. Well ...
... anyone who might carry a gun would carry an unapproved book or subversive literature. You can never be too careful when it comes to security.
