On the topic of gun control, what do you think of this?
Smart guns, recently patented by Irish entrepreneur, Robert McNamara, prevent anyone, except the owner of the device, from shooting it. A chip implant in the hand, or a simple bracelet, ring, or stamp can contain the chip, which allows gun to fire, only when it is within 2 inches of the trigger.
I am curious to see what people think of this idea. I am impartial and try not to pass judgment on this issue. I just found this interesting.
Sounds outstanding. So long as there is a background check, gun safety course, magazine size limit, required reporting of lost/stolen/found weapons, and a national registry for the owner...
The idea is a good one, but this guy wouldn't be the first to try it. I think it could do some good if it garnered some support.
Honestly, I love the thought! That would be awesome to have! But I wouldn't be too happy about the chip implant... That wouldn't be fun for me.
The "chip" idea freaks me out, but it would probably be effective in gun control seeing as how even guns with this capability would be expensive in the black market too.
The idea sounds good, but would not meet Constitutional muster, since Congress is not allowed to pass any law infringing on the rights of the people to bear arms.
However, assuming you overcome that hurdle, one thing still concerns me. Would people who own these guns be at greater risk of attack as people try to sell the bracelet, ring or whatever that contains the chip. Thus, the stolen gun is usable and guilt may be associated with the person who originally owned the gun but was robbed of it and the chip. Furthermore, if such a chip was made, it would soon be duplicated for illegal uses. In theory, I like the idea. In reality, I am not sure it would work--at least least not as it is being envisioned.

I'm so sick of hearing arguments about guns and mental illness and bad parenting. What school meetings or city meetings would be a good place for people to go to express their concern?

The federal government could declare a state of emergency and post at least 2 well trained, armed personnel, either police or military, within our public schools. Gunmen attack soft targets. They like to...

The NRA leadership (not most of NRA members) currently sees Gun Control as a stark Black and White issue. The NRA et al think that ANY step to keep guns out of the hands of those who shouldn't have them is ipso...
