    Nonsense. The gun will fire for anyone with the watch or a freq hack.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    From the article...

    Armatix said it had an agreement with the Oak Tree Gun Club, a large gun range and retailer about 20 minutes north of Los Angeles, to sell its iP1 pistol, which can be fired only after the owner enters a five-digit PIN into a watch that transmits a signal to the gun. The gun, which retails for about $1,800, disables itself if it is more than 10 inches from the watch.
    Hacking it, while not impossible, would be quite difficult, and for the average gun thief, impossible. The gun does provide a pretty hefty level of security. And, like I said before, if someone does not like that feature, they don't have to buy the gun.

    Wow. Someone has seconds to act and can't remember their damn pin.
    Yeah, not really good Idea.

    Just thinking of possibilities.

    Hackers who choose this path can access pretty much anything wireless.
    Vehicles, baby monitors, CC information, rfid.
    I can't see that being any different for a micro-chipped gun.
    They sweep the neighborhood to see who has one, to avoid or to steal.
    Making it a requirement may not be such a great idea.

    That is the choice of the buyer, and not yours to make.

    I didn't say it was mine to make? Did I?

    I said; "Yeah, not really good Idea."

    I don't know how you got that confused.
