Revision of Products out of Destructive Device Category Comes as they are Needed Most to Help Safely Maintain Public Order and Protect Lives
SARNIA, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 2, 2020 / Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc. (OTC PINK:LLLI), an innovation leader and manufacturer of advanced security solutions for law enforcement, military and security agencies worldwide, is pleased to report that a very positive and important ruling has been made by the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) regarding key riot control products developed and manufactured by Lamperd.
Our Master Distributor American Reserve Munitions, LLC, asked ATF to determine if two Lamperd Throwaway Distraction Devices (PT7707, PT7707-OC), two 20 gauge less lethal rounds (PT709, PT717S), and two 37 millimeter less lethal rounds (PT750-37, PT750AB) are destructive devices under the National Firearms Act (NFA) and the implementing regulations at 27 CFR, Part 479. ATF has now determined that the aforementioned devices and less lethal rounds are not destructive devices and has re-classified them as pyrotechnic distraction devices (ATF Document Number: 903070:MJO 19-817601 555.11; 478.11; 479.11 5320; 5401). As a result, American Reserve Munitions is now in a much better position to handle the processing of orders for these Lamperd riot control products to police and military buyers for use in the entire United States.
Barry Lamperd, CEO of Lamperd Less Lethal commented: "This ruling from the ATF on some of our most advanced products for riot control has come at a time when these devices have never been needed more to help keep public order and protect lives. Lamperd has a primary focus on delivering effective security products which are the safest in the global industry. This new ruling will allow products such as the Lamperd Aerial Burst Pepper Spray munitions to be much more easily and widely imported to the United States to keep crisis situations under better control with the lowest possible risk of harm to anyone. At Lamperd Less Lethal we are very proud of our record that in over 50 years of operation no one has ever been killed or even seriously injured by any of our products."
The Lamperd Aerial Burst rounds should be especially useful as, unlike traditional tear gas and related products, these munitions can not be thrown or kicked back at peace officers since the rounds disburse above a crowd dropping only a powerful pepper compound but no harmful debris at all. Lamperd Aerial Burst rounds can control individuals in an area of 200 sq. ft. for up to 20 minutes giving peace officers a very effective new option to clear areas of unruly or dangerous persons. Lamperd impact munitions such as our proven Wasp rounds can effectively deter aggressive persons from causing anyone harm without officers having to resort to the use of deadly force.
