The original intent of Gun Control Act and FOPA did not include a desire to run a backround check on every single gun sale ever. The rule only applied to FFL holders. No FFL mean no expectation to perform a background check. Likewise you don't need to use a licensed auto dealer to sell your car.Loophole
: a means of escape; especially: an ambiguity or omission in the text through which the intent of a statute, contract, or obligation may be evaded
Gun control only makes crime worse.
As a defensive weapon it makes no sense. You have to load in a 5 digit code into the watch before you can use it. You cant switch hands if need be. You cant shoot weak hand with this weapon. All presuming of course everything works. More than worried about the weapon itself I would be worried about the announced DoJ finanical incentives to develop more of these types of weapons.
how are all those thugs in Chicago able to get guns? YOu seem to think the black market won't increase

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
Some of the very same people who tout the free market, and hate government control, are against someone buying a gun that will only fire for them and nobody else, and who are threatening her for making a gun like this? This is insane. I think smart guns are in our future.BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Belinda Padilla does not pick up unknown calls anymore, not since someone posted her cellphone number on an online forum for gun enthusiasts. A few fuming-mad voice mail messages and heavy breathers were all it took.
Then someone snapped pictures of the address where she has a P.O. box and put those online, too. In a crude, cartoonish scrawl, this person drew an arrow to the blurred image of a woman passing through the photo frame. “Belinda?” the person wrote. “Is that you?”
Her offense? Trying to market and sell a new .22-caliber handgun that uses a radio frequency-enabled stopwatch to identify the authorized user so no one else can fire it. Ms. Padilla and the manufacturer she works for, Armatix, intended to make the weapon the first “smart gun” for sale in the United States.
Look, I am all for the Second Amendment, and I support it strongly. I believe that a person should have as many guns as they want. For those who want a gun that cannot be fired if stolen, this is a good choice. For those others, who are afraid that the technology might allow the government to know who owns a gun, and what kind of gun, I have a very simple solution for you. Don't buy one. You have just as much of a right to a gun without the technology as she has to manufacture and sell one that does have the technology. It's the free market, dumbasses!!
