    Smart Guns

    https://techxplore.com/news/2022-01-...t-pistols.html

    I'm all for allowing the consumer to have choices. This is ripe for being politicized, especially in our new world of life by mandates.

    When cops and military use them them I will. Until then, no way in hell.

    maybe if they'd deal with violent criminals sensibly, instead of coddling them, we wouldn't have quite so many 'spiking gun deaths.'

    In the world of industry, it seems that every new patent gets embedded into the safety codes and dictates. If a double redundant safety is good, a triple redundant safety is better.

    Gun safes are good, and trigger locks too! But mandated for your bedside critical defense weapon makes no sense whatsoever. If I am surprised in the dark I want the least fumblingpossible. Every tech they can exploit to make gun ownership and use more restrictive, you can bet they will exploit for control and power.

    OnStar can shut off your cars engine. Just think what those Nazi bastards can do with these so called smart guns.

    If these are ever mandated, used gun prices will soar.

    Gee, I wonder ... will all the criminals use such weapons?

    Why, yes they will!!

    They'll be the ones they stole from you and I, and defeated the ridiculous smart safety.

    Yeah, because the vast majority of the gun owning public, is out there shooting people while in commission of a crime, or just to murder someone. So EVERY gun needs this!

    Idiot idea concocted by gun grabbers, IMHO.

    The article is littered with libarded gungrabber language:
    taking aim at spiking gun deaths
    backers say it's a chance to prevent children, criminals or people considering self-harm from pulling the trigger.
    ..et cetera.

    The 'self harm' point suggests that someone besides you has actual control of your gun, no?

    Choices good, politicization bad.

    Were I in the market for a gun I'd view such guns as having complicated stuff likely to fail at "inconvenient" times. Especially with the technology being unproven in the "field". Might be nice range toys for someone with $$ to spend on curiosities, but not suitable for self-defense, IMO.
    Populists' Big Guys vs. Little Guys rhetoric is emotive rationalization about who plunders and who is plundered.
