Regarding your post on the recent CIA hack “proving” your case against smart guns, you obviously know more about these sophisticated devices than people like me who’ve been making them. Even I didn’t know there are Blueooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, cameras, facial recognition, tracking systems, and other evil instruments lurking in the guns my company builds.
Oh wait. There aren’t. Our guns were designed 17 years ago when most of that stuff didn’t even exist. And they still have none of that junk in them. I don’t know about some of the other smart gun makers, but you may want to consult with someone who actually builds smart guns before pontificating on their dangers.
Admittedly, there are people working on advanced firearm technology who envision and even advocate this type of Big Brother nonsense. We want no part of it, though. So by lumping all smart gun technologies into a single, vulnerable category you’re stooping as low as the lame liberal media does when they espouse the idea that “Uzi’s are bad, but semi-auto hunting rifles with shiny wood stocks are just fine.” Sadly, you’re playing the same game with your “knowledge” – such as it is — of smart guns.
Picture this: a burglar breaks into a home at 3:00am. The husband is on a business trip. Two children are sleeping down the hall. Mrs. Smith keeps her smart gun by the bed. She wants to own a firearm to protect herself, but is concerned about her children’s safety with a gun in the house.
Do you really think Mrs. Smith is remotely concerned that the burglar has armed himself with a portable EMP device? You may want to re-think your nightmare scenario.
