    M ass. Senators introduce S.1474, 'Handgun Trigger Safety Act' -- again

    "Last week Markey and Warren introduced The “Handgun Trigger Safety Act”. It would mandate that in 10 years “anyone selling a handgun must retrofit it with personalization technology before that sale can be completed.”

    It would also ban the “manufacture in the United States a handgun that is not a personalized handgun” within 5 years of the measure being enacted. [ ... ]"

    What are the odds that this will pass before I reach my 150th birthday?

    LOL

    What is the ratio of the likelihood of S.1474 passage to the likelihood of a particular human reaching 150 years of age? It is the ratio of "Slim to None, Slim/None"

    Slim is a small number diminishing towards zero in the limit but never equal to zero. Dividing by zero is an undefined operation, so we allow the denominator to approach zero from the positive direction - L'Hopital's Rule - and watch the value of the function as it nears zero.

    Passage of S.1474 is more likely than a living human reaching 150 y.o.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
