Thread: Smart Gun - Good or Bad?

  1. #11
    I retired as a senior electronics technician and taught electronics repair at the local university. Is it any wonder there were so many of us making GOOD money in the repair of electronic products?BECAUSE THE STUFF BREAKS DOWN WHEN YOU WANT OR NEED TO USE IT THE MOST!!!

    I just love the inconsistent consistency of the anti gun nuts. To have any laws banning or forcing the people to own, or not to own, so called 'smart guns' is wrong. If the technology some day gets to were it works darn near 100% of the time, it should be up to the gun owner "to buy or not to buy." ER..sorry there Willy S..

    This is a terrible idea.

    • It gives a false sense of security to people who may not realize the "smart" systems can be disabled.
    • It gives a false sense of security to (poorly trained) children who may decide to play with "smart" firearms.
    • More complexity increases the chance of a malfunction or failure.
    • Biometric systems can often be fooled without physically or electronically disabling the device.
    • It ignores the fact that people should pay attention to securing their firearms, and not buying a quick fix.
    • Smart systems will inevitably require some sort of government regulation or certification, which will cost taxpayer money.
    • It's an additional expensive feature - and to hit the price point, firearms manufacturers may sacrifice quality or other features that might actually make guns more safe.
    • It's another level of unnecessary complication that makes things more difficult than they need to be.

    It's another reason to go buy a gun or three now.

    Let's just hope that this ridiculous idea doesn't gain traction nationwide. If someone wants a "Smart Gun," then fine, that's their choice. Don't force it upon those who don't want it, however.
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

    And if you have one gun in the house, and it's programmed for you, the wife can't grab it and shoot a BG. So instead of one gun in the house, you need one for everyone who might need to defend it.

    Would work great for a boat anchor, nothing else. I wouldn't even waste my money on one!!
