"Smart guns" show promise, but not readily available on U.S. market [View all]

http://news.yahoo.com/smart-guns-show-promise-not-readily-available-u-202657039.html

"The attitude is, ‘We understand this technology is coming down the track and we'll deal with it when we have to,'" he said. "They're concerned about the liability aspect. When you put it in one gun you'll have to put it in every gun."


the gun companies' argument is pretty lame. i'm sure the auto industry said the same thing about seatbeats, and the toaster industry about automatic shutoffs-

they are basically saying "we won't do it until it is law, because of our profits. sure, it is available, but it might make us lose money."

but if they had to put it in every gun, wouldn't they make money by charging a little more for the guns?
as if people won't pay an extra $50 for a gun?
obviously there is absolutely nothing that will stop people from buying them.

you'll pry my toaster from my cold dead hands? hello?
