Default The idiocy of anti-2nd amendent trash and smart guns.

The gist of the article is that the NRA is evil for opposing firearms that can fail to operate, be shut off from outside sources and New Jersey for enacting legislation that would ban all other guns if smart guns become available. And the author of the article completely ignores the fact that Smith and Wesson sold old to Bill Clinton,It wasn't just the smart gun technology they wanted to pursue that caused them to be nearly financially ruined. The author pretends that if the NRA didn't oppose it and if New Jersey would just repeal its law then there would be smart guns.That somehow New Jersey wouldn't turn around and re enact that law or that other anti-2nd amendment states or that anti-2nd amendment trash at the federal level wouldn't do the same. We know smart guns are not that great.Its why police departments,other law enforcement and the military and other countries aren't rushing to get smart guns made even if its from outside sources.

First and foremost is the need for an 'intermediary' (watch or wristband) which could be lost, stolen or damaged or just plain overlooked on a moment's decision to defend. THINKING you have a method of defense, that doesn't work, is almost worse than knowing you don't have a method of defense available.

Responses change. Actions change. And outcomes change.

Nothing more frustrating than grabbing a battery operated device and realizing that the battery is dead. With a TV remote that's an inconvenience. With a self defense item that's a death sentence. The New Jersey law is still on the books after 15 years of everybody saying that it never should have passed.

I've fired firearms that have not been used in a hundred years. They all worked as planned. I can't say that about my car battery.

Oh don't you worry, once you have your mandatory government ID chip implanted in the new rosy future it will interface with your permitted firearm. The interface will only take 30 seconds to boot up.

And it will take me only half a second to put my boot up the ass of the first SOB trying to implant one of those devices in my body.

Of course they are saying it should have never passed.As a result of New Jersey enacting that law we 2nd amendment advocates know that anti-2nd amendment trash politicians will try to enact that law everywhere. New Jersey can repeal that law all the want, it won't make gun manufacturers touch smart guns.
