    Again, I'm not saying this is good tech or that it should be mandatory or anything like that, just that the actions of certain gun enthusiasts in this particular instance are reprehensible. (Standard disclaimer lest I get accused of wanting to "ban guns" by certain zealots around here)

    I think being as well educated as I am on gun issues gun use and gun laws should be mandatory before one posts on gun issues or more importantly, votes on a gun bill in congress

    that would eliminate ALL of the anti gun posters and more importantly, every anti gun politician from voting

    The fact remains, that by your own admission, you are opposed to the appropriate treatment of the most dangerous and unsalvageable of criminals. No surprise that you are on the side of these criminals, and not on the side of honest citizens. This goes right along with opposing the Second Amendment.

    The woman should not have had those calls placed, on that we definitely agree.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    No. You purposely and dishonestly cut off the second part of my quote. You lied. I thought a man who claimed to be as godly as yourself wouldn't bear false witness against his neighbor.

    The idea that, because I favor incarceration over execution, that I am "on the side of criminals" is patently absurd.

    Provide one shred of evidence that I "oppose the Second Amendment." Actual evidence, not snipped, out-of-context stuff like you just tried to pass off as evidence.

    what oozing idiocy. the "technology" in question doesn't make the gun safer.

    It's quite literally the lede of the NY Times piece in the OP.
    I see her claiming that but given this piece was from an anti gun publication, color me skeptical
