    surely you cant mean her having the right to sell a tech lock firearm is a bad idea...surely you dont mean that.

    I do as well. Let the consumer decide - not the government.

    What could possibly go wrong with a tech lock gun? How about when the battery dies or the sensor is damaged/blocked - is it now a regular gun or does it turn into a very expensive hammer? One can dislike a new product without wanting them to be banned.

    First, I'm sorry this woman is being harassed. A difference in opinion does not warrant abuse.

    The gun unlocks every-time your arm is at your side, hand in your pocket, etc (the RFID watch being in proximity to the gun, as designed). Just my opinion but I only want the gun to unlock when I'm going to actually use it.

    Also I don't like the idea of delicate electronics in something that makes a lot of shock. Electronics tend to brake when so treated.

    Not imo, no, because that one avoided accident is matched or outweighed by the one time the gun fails to unlock when needed to defend against a rapist.

    Whatever gizmo we invent needs to have a net benefit, and a significant one at that, not just 1 avoided incident.
