remotely disabled firearms?

I really want my weapon's ability to fire to depend on a battery.
I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.

Imagine criminals walking around with "jammers" that'll interfere with any ID-to-chip sort of communication, or some other deactivating mechanism operable from a distance, or simple "whiz-bang" technological failure (ie, battery zap, chip malf, static/EMP zap, whatever). And that disabling-by-other-method (besides my own choice and action) includes the potential of a malevolent government desiring my arms to not function.
For something I'm betting my life on, that something had darned well better function when I need it to, no excuses.

Also, there is no such thing as a 100% secure system. You can bet there would be vulnerabilities, and it wouldn't take long for the bad guys to come up with a way to disable your SD gun.

I'm sure Bloomberg and the Secret Service are rushing to get this "new technology" in the hands of their departments. After all, it will keep the kids safer.

I can see them demanding it for the general public that they consider may be allowed to own firearms but of course the police, military and their security details will be exempt.
