Smart Guns are rapidly becoming a reality.
From the article:
Sixteen electronic computerized sensors embedded in the gun's grip distinguished known from unknown users.
Of course the real rub lies in the fine print:
"We've only just begun and we're pleased to say that we're getting 90 percent reliability when scanning users,"
So, 1 in 10 times, the gun won't fire?
I guess it's still in it's infancy, but it still raises all kinds of questions, like what's involved in registering it for a different user? Can the end user do it? I mean you know as soon as these become 'required' some joeboy's gonna figgure out a way to disable it...
And what about people who carry guns in cold weather? You gotta take your gloves off to use your weapon?
Mmm... Dosn't sound like such a hot idea to me...
