SALT is a Self Defence Gun that has been developed to offer long-range protection to people without the potentially lethal side effects of a normal gun. The pistol shoots rounds filled with a powdered mix of chemicals that create a toxic cloud upon impact and thus incapacitate an attacker, removing the potentially deadly results that a normal gun would cause in the same circumstances.  However, within 24 hours of its Indiegogo campaign starting, Salt was removed from the crowd-funding website due to a conflict with their Terms of Use.  While the logic behind SALT’s removal can be understood, the question has to be asked – should Indiegogo have taken down  a campaign that could actually protect people, and reduce gun violence, or should they have supported such an innovative solution?
