Gun control advocates love them some smart guns. They believe guns with electronic ID systems will protect children from negligent discharges. They’ll choke off the supply of [functional] guns from lawful gun owners to bad guys. I’m not going to argue the point – other than to say children are clever and bad guys are cleverer. And there are tens of millions of “dumb guns” in circulation. The antis’ love of smart gun technology proves, once again, that they live in a world of their own imagination, where “the iPhone of guns” never fails (bloody hands anyone?) and a bad guy who can’t fire the gun he stole from you gives up and runs away. So let’s go with this: if smart guns are such a smart idea, the antis can buy them. Millions of American gun owners reckon a firearm without an electronic safety is like a fish without a bicycle. It gets on swimmingly, as is. As for guns’ inherent dangers, duh.
