Second Amendment advocates, fearing the technology will be mandated, launched angry protests this year against stores in Maryland and California that tried to sell it.
Leave it to the mainstream media to make this a touchy feely issue. No one cares how this man feels. His feelings and “guilt” are irrelevant. And it wasn’t “fear” that drove the protests. It is in fact the law that fueled the protests.
At issue is pre-existing knee jerk legislation passed in response to previous tragedies, mandates that once such a gun hits the market, that the ONLY guns allowed to be sold in certain states going foward would be so called “smart guns” So in bringing the gun to market, it potentially enacted bans on all conventionally firearms in place like California, Maryland, and New Jersey. And the only “fear” is that the technology remains immature, untested. and impractical for any serious purpose. If it were a fully vetted technology, we’d see law enforcement and military begging for it.
