Considering internal locks on S&W revolvers are hated by most, I doubt these 'advances' would catch on.
So what if BG's get their hands on some kind of device that can make the gun "unworkable"?"Smart guns," which can be fired only by an authorized person and can be rendered unworkable at all in certain locations.......
That's me. I don't need a gun I have to get my granddaughter to show me how to use.No way no how! I would go to great lengths to avoid such technology.
I'm not smart so believe that I can get through the rest of my life without "smart" guns. Dumb guns for me.
