Now we’re going to be dealing with this stupid argument again. I’ve been listening to this crap since the 1990s. It didn’t work then, and now in the days of iPhones and Androids, and pocket other pocket supercomputing, it still doesn’t work. Why? Because anyone in IT knows biometric security isn’t reliable enough to use on firearms. I might also have legitimate reasons why I might want to hand my firearm off to someone else in the unfortunate event things go pear shaped in a hurry.Â We also want guns to go bang when we pull the trigger. Even if it fails one time out of one-hundred, the reliability isn’t even good enough. We don’t want a gun that won’t function with dead batteries.
This issue will continue to be bullshit until you see police willingly choosing these types of firearms. As it is, they are exempted in the one state that has a smart gun law, New Jersey. This is basically just a nerd’s argument for trigger locks. It plays well to the educated technophiles, who really know nothing about the topic.
