Legislative Update: Governor signs law barring 'smart' gun purchase requirements

https://www.verdenews.com/news/2017/apr/19/legislative-update-governor-signs-law-barring-smar/

Arizonans who want firearms won't be required to purchase "smart'' weapons.

Gov. Doug Ducey on Tuesday signed legislation which blocks any state or local law that says the only guns that can be offered for sale have to meet certain standards.

On the surface, the legislation is aimed at weapons which have GPS capability that enables police to track not only the local of the gun but also to send an electronic notice when it is fired.

But much of the debate centered around technology that enables a gun to know when it is in the hands of an authorized user. That can involve anything from fingerprint recognition to proximity to a special electronic fob worn by the owner.

(Rest at the link.)

Sorry, but I don't want to encounter the equivalent of the Microsoft Blue Screen of Death if I am in a self defense situation and need to use a firearm to defend myself or my family.

If you want to purchase one of these things, go ahead, just don't try to change the law to force me to buy one also.

1. Instead of forcing the public to adopt this

technology, politicians should require their police forces to use it. They won't because cops won't risk their lives with battery-operated guns.

3. Can you imagine the technology involved,

of not only having the electronics determine whether you may fire the gun or not, but the gun also sends a GPS notice (assuming you are not moving, otherwise a constant GPS needs to be sent). The gun would probably spend as much time on the charger as my wife's phone. Pretty useless for what it is intended for.

4. There would be plenty of room for a huge battery in the handle...

...since one is the only reasonable bullet capacity.
