    Massachusetts’ Markey revives ‘smart gun’ debate

    Massachusetts Senator Edward Markey today announced that he will push legislation requiring that all new firearms be “personalized” as his panacea to so-called “gun violence,” which is yet another revival of the “smart gun” debate that has raged off and on for years.

    BGs will avoid smart guns.

    (One suspects that BGs could readily hack them, no matter what the technology; however, they still would not be reliable.)

    This gives BGs a huge advantage, and the BGs know this, one assumes.)

    Just a waste of tax payer money. BG will find ways to assault or kill. Get "dumb" guns. Or hack the system. Anything can be hacked these days. If a person can hack and unlock a car. What makes them think that they couldn't hack a gun. Plus it's probably a way to raise the prices of guns to where people couldn't afford the new required "smart" guns.

    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    I would like someone to introduce legislation to force the government to make me a phaser pistol like on Star Trek. I would of course want stun and kill settings as well as a one-year unlimited shooting battery. But that is unfortunately science-fiction just like smart gun technology. Only apparently there's a Sen. in Massachusetts not smart enough to figure that out. Scary.

    • But your other family members can't defend themselves with "your" gun, when home alone.
    • Your spouse cannot grab your gun if you're downed in a firefight to defend you both before you're overcome.
    • A "personalized" gun is going to require electronics of some sort, which is notorious for failures of all sorts.
    • An electronics-based solution can be jammed or disabled or otherwise rendered pointless on the instant of violent crime.
    • Violent criminals (those whom we ostensibly would be targeting with such steps) will laugh in their sleeves at such prohibitions and will simply bring traditional, "manual" weapons alternatives to crimes they're committing ... leaving primarily the good guys out in the cold with "clubs" in their hands and few alternatives for survival.



    Doesn't sound like a good combination of results, let alone one with any hope or prayer of reducing crime at all, most of which directly threaten the ability of the good guys to survive such situations.



    Nice article, Dave. Thank you for the continued hard work to make "the mysteries" clear to everyone.

    Could we just ban politicians who infringe on the rights we want to hand down to future generations? After all it's for the children.

    A senator in Massachusetts wants more gun legislation? But, of course he does.
    A wise man once said: "Bugout bag?..What's that? Is that all the junk you sidewalk commandos plan on humping when the SHTF...I'll grab a Nylon 66, a box of 22s and a poncho liner and in less than a week I will have all of your stuff and everything else that I need for the duration."

    Also electronic equipment tends to fail when under pressure, like the recoil of a gun.

    Not all politicians.
    Not all political hacks.
    Not all who think and act like reps of the People who've hired them, even.
    Just those who attempt to sidestep and/or destroy the Constitution's protections.

    Absolutely. Try to blast it, and you're outta here (administration/legislation), permanently.

    Any such legislation introduced is immediately assigned to a death committee. Neither side wants it. Like the national reciprocity nonsense, a few, self-serving politicians, like this guy, introduce these bills so they can get pub back home from a constituency that mostly favors the topic. It's all just a political game. Nothing about which to get excited.

    There really should be term limits.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    VERY short term limits
