1. What do we do with "Smart Guns"? It's untested technology; nobody trusts it.
2. How do we arm our "friendlies" in the Middle East ... who change shirts at will?
EVERYBODY (almost) is touting the benefits of "Smart Guns", which cannot be fired by anyone except the 'registered owner'. Some folks want Americans to put the lives of their families at risk by depending on this untested technology.
Americans have lined up to say "UH ... I DON'T THINK SO!"
One of the issues is that Americans love their country but fear their government;
"The Feds" can turn off the functionality of a 'Smart Gun' at will, because it's all electronics and NSA has the premier control in this world of electronic data transfer.
At the same time, we are arming our 'friendlies' in the Middle East, but we don't trust them all that much either.
Instead of imposing Smart Guns on the American People, why don't we give them to our allies?
The Real Issue of Gun Control - Allen West:
(July 06, 2016)
Both Afghanistan and Iraqi Defense Forces have difficulty determining the sympathies and loyalties of new recruits. Aware of these concerns, Florida-based Trigger Smart has now developed and patented a smart gun system that can remotely enable and disable weapons using wireless technology on the military field.
While technology alone cannot replace proper vetting practices, smart-gun technologies can potentially mitigate the risk that our troops face. Equipping our ally soldiers with RFID-secured weapons, paired with wide-area control technology, can ensure that only authorized personnel can operate their assigned weapon. Weapons can be enabled and disabled by U.S. advisors whose military forces will designate safe zones throughout outposts and operating bases.
Tee hee hee
I can only imagine the Middle-Eastern turncoats who point guns at American 'advisers', only to discover that "The Furschlinger Gun Doesn't Work!"
(I don't know how to say that in Farsi.)
This is probably the best idea I've heard in years.
In the words of Andy Rooney: "Hey Kids, I've got an idea ... let's put on a show!"
