    Password-protected bullets...you're not going to believe this!

    "Meyerle is patenting a design for a modified cartridge that would be fired by a burst of high-frequency radio energy. But the energy would only ignite the charge if a solid-state switch within the cartridge had been activated. This would only happen if a password entered into the gun using a tiny keypad matched one stored in the cartridge."

    'When they are sold, cartridges could be programmed with a password that matches the purchaser's gun. An owner could set the gun to request the password when it is reloaded, or to perform a biometric check before firing. The gun could also automatically lock itself after a pre-set period of time has passed since the password was entered."

    password-protect the ammunition itself.
    I found a good sale on .22 bricks, can you program these 2000 rounds for me?

    The system would undoubtedly cost more than a conventional gun
    Ya think? A gun and ammunition with programming?

    but many firearm enthusiasts would surely pay a premium for such added security.
    Ummm...methinks I disagree. Who is going to spend thousands on a gun that could just as easily be stolen as a conventional gun?

    <Sigh>... Some liberal is going to pick up on this and think it's a great idea and then we'll have something else to fight against.

    GREAT!!!!!! now if we can just password bad guys with the universal password ( i am assuming here thiese super bullets will need a passworded entry portal too ) it will take all the steam out of the aimed fire / threat focused fire debate LOL
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    There are way too many people with far too much free time on their hands to just sit around and dream up this silly BS.

    Feinstein's gonna love this crackpot idea!


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Hey guys:
    This is probably an invention to loosen up ownership responcibility in Germany.

    Remember their chancelor (back in '34) managed to register every civilian fire arm... This is probably an attempt to loosen some of their ammo possesion restrictions.
    I still don't know that I don't know.
