    If properly stored, they cannot be used by anyone unauthorized to do so...

    Intimidation and bullying is why I don't care for gun enthusiasts very much. If they had a valid reason or argument they wouldn't need to use such tactics.
    It's disappointing that only two people in this thread seem to be bothered by the woman's harassment.

    If gun enthusiasts value 'rights' then they should oppose those who are harassing her and realize/recognize how creepy and dangerous THAT behavior is. What will responses be if she ends up being shot or harassed further as a result? Why? Because she thinks a product is beneficial and good and so she sells it?
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Read post 49 (responding to the pre-edited version) then post 50. I don't know where that turn came from.

    While leaving the proper owner exposed when it fails, or misfiring if it overheats, and at the end of the day, it's an overpriced .22 pistol. The damn thing is junk, and the developers should hang their heads in shame.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    That does not mean they don't have the right to sell it.

    If the "gun enthusiasts" made reasonable explanations as to why the smart gun might not be a great idea, that would be one thing. These particular ones are resorting to nothing but thuggish intimidation and harassment.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    How could it be anything other than a challenge? I'm here in south central Texas behind a computer screen.

    Sure they do, and I hope it is a massive failure because it's a very stupid idea that endangers people. This thing is the Ford Edsel of firearms.

    Good point. I mostly focused on the smart-gun aspect.

    And what if it is a success?
