See also my blog category of Smart Guns.
People who demand all guns must be “smart” must fall into one or more of the following categories:
- They are evil and are deliberately attempting to raise the price and restrict the exercise of specific enumerated rights.
- They have intellectual capacity asymptotically approaching that of a fence post.
- They believe technology is some sort of magic that can do anything once someone figures out the proper technological incantation. They cannot comprehend there are certain things that are physically, or for all practical purposes, impossible. Engineers/scientists (I have been both) are able to things which is indistinguishable from magic to the general population. This does not mean they do not have very real and impenetrable boundaries they must operate within.
Such people should be politely informed they are wrong, mocked, scorned, and prosecuted. In that order.
