Bloomberg - Are you a robot?
Wait, I see it in the smoke. A "law" in effort to make something of this nature, mandatory.
Technology can and does often fail. Batteries run low. Electronics can be damaged by exposure to water or shock. You can't afford to reboot in the middle of a gun fight. If the technology was so great why don't police departments adopt it. I'm certain the military won't adopt it because what happens if you have to pick up another weapon if yours fails.
Granted a 100% mechanical firearm can also fail but I think the chances of that are much less. Sure we have laser sights, red dots and optics that can fail but we have back up iron sights for such situations.
Huh, so far that poll of gun owners saying 50% would buy one does not seem.... well accurate. Shocking I tell you, shocking.
These are "smart" enough for me...
I have an iPhone 7. It costs a bomb. I think apple is amazing. However when I wash my hands the fingerprint activation WILL NOT WORK till my finger dries.
I’m not going to trust my life on some tech that is guaranteed to be worse than apple
- "Hey Alexa! Save my life."
- "Did you want me to call the police?"
- "Hey Alexa! No, unlock my weapon now!"
- "Sorry, you do not have adequate social standing to defend yourself."
- "Hey Alexa! unlock my gun! NOW!"
- "I don't like your tone, I'll call a Judge and red flag you"
From an article referenced by the original article in the OP:
Nearly 60 percent of Americans, if they buy a new handgun, are willing to purchase a smart or childproof gun – a weapon that is only operable in the hands of an authorized user – new Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health-led research suggests.
Bloomberg-financed "research", what a joke. He always gets the answer he pays for.
If they really wanted to save lives they'd be researching why people want to take lives.
I dont think anyone would mind owning a gun that only they can shoot. But when laws are passed saying all you can buy is smart guns it shuts the idea of having one very quickly, and rightly so.
Please Mister murderer wait a minute while I enter my PIN # so I can defend myself!!!!!!!!!
The weirdest thing. I just did a search for a smart gun parody video that I saw a few years ago. No matter how I worded the search, or where I did it, I found nothing even close to it. Most of what I found was anti-gun stuff and SNL bashing conservatives or the President. This censoring thing may be ramping up a bit. Or my google-foo must have failed me.
Well, if it uses the same magic by which only Arthur is able to pull Excalibur from the stone, then sure, why not.
Even just for the novelty. Like imagine going to the range and messin with your buddies
Well let's see, I won't even own a keypad on my safes, so hmmmm, yeah I'll pass. Now if it is attached to a phaser we can talk, I'll buy two and figure out how to disable the "smart" part.
Consider this: California passed a law that in effect said that when microstamping became feasible, all new models of semi auto pistols would be required to have that technology in order to be sold in California. Then state attorney general and current senator and presidential candidate Kamala Harris declared unilaterally that the technology was now viable and so, no new pistol designs can make the cut for California's "Safe handgun" roster.
But wait, there's more!
In the lawsuit that followed, the judge ruled that the law cannot be invalidated even though the conditions of it are impossible to meet.
Only in the PRK
Half the fun of owning a gun is showing it off to your pals and having them shoot it. Smart gun technology screws that up completely.
Kalifornia should mandate that all police in state are required to have them as duty weapons.
Something tells me that would end the debate, as it would be shown these are not ready for prime time life and death situations.
Only if it was cheap and bought as a novelty.
I could never rely on something like a "smart gun"...
"I dont think anyone would mind owning a gun that only they can shoot."
I never asked you to do my thinking for me. I think it sucks.
John M. Browning built the best smart gun.
All other guns of that type including the Glock, Luger(sp?), P-38 etc. are as good.
