    Poll Finds Americans Skeptical of So-called Smart Guns

    "Smart Guns" is a made-up term for a conceptual firearm that incorporates technology that theoretically permits the gun to be fired only by the authorized user. Failed attempts to develop and market "smart guns" have been going on for years.

    NRA does not oppose new technological developments in firearms; however, we are opposed to government mandates that require the use of expensive, unreliable features, such as grips that would read your fingerprints before the gun will fire. And NRA recognizes that the "smart guns" issue clearly has the potential to mesh with the anti-gunner's agenda, opening the door to a ban on all guns that do not possess the government-required technology.

    The real story is not what the NRA has to say, but that NJ has had a law on the books for 10 years mandating every pistol in NJ be a "smart gun."

    Google "smart gun" and read. Is the "sky falling"? Not today it seems.

    Is a new technological advancement progressive of liberties, rights or freedoms, or is it just another means of control?

    Every implementation of the so-called smart guns I have seen are full of fail when it comes to personal defense, even if they work perfectly as designed. I'll never rely on one, not no way, not no how.

    Let us not get all wound up in the possible advancements in gun tech due to the advances in electronic that make guns more fun. The op gives a hint as to what the perils of smart tech is for our 2A protected right.

    here is another hint: RFID.

    Future news story:

    According to anonymous persons close to the family Sarah Brady's head reportedly exploded yesterday morning. Less than 24 hours after smart gun technology became mandatory for all firearms a group of hackers has released code that converts the most common smart gun firing system to fully automatic. Sources at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Explosives, and Health Insurance have confirmed that the hack does indeed work as reported and takes only about 2 minutes to implement. They are asking all smart gun owners to bring their firearms to their local BATFEHI office for a software upgrade to ensure the continued safe operation of their firearm. So far only two people have showed up requesting the upgrade. Reportedly both were confused and thought the BATFEHI would actually install the full-auto hack for them.
