If it were true that law abiding gun nuts wanted to keep guns away from “criminals” then this sort of thing would be a slam dunk.
According to a Wednesday report in the Washington Post, the era of “smart guns” — weapons that would only fire when their registered user is using them — may be closer than many think.
The Armatix iP1 is now being sold in California and is considered to be the first true smart gun available on the market.
Of course the gun nut community will hate this. Why? Because keeping guns out of the hands of criminals isn’t a real big priority for the NRA, and I think we can all agree that the NRA (literally) calls the shots. So when this is roundly panned by gun nuts here and elsewhere across the Internets, it will be very plain to see that for all of their bluster about legal and illegal users of guns, all gun nuts stand for one thing – more gun violence and mayhem because that the price we are willing to pay for
a wildly profitable gun manufacturing industry freedom.
