Sen. Cornyn Sends Letter to Holder Demanding Answers on DOJ's Proposal to Push "Smart Guns"
Posted on April 18, 2014
Worried about having your credit card hacked? How about if a criminal, a hacker or even a government agency could turn your gun on or off anytime they wanted? While so-called “smart guns” aren’t yet ready for prime time, the tools to hack one variety of them already exist; they just haven’t been applied to a product not yet actually on the market.
"I do not doubt that supporters of smartgun technology wish to reduce gun accidents and violence. That’s a goal in which I firmly believe. But is smartgun technology really ready for prime time? Or do these guns introduce vulnerabilities that could create new, serious safety issues for gun owners and non-owners alike?"
The consequences of the chemical reaction of turning solid propellant into gas results are heat and recoil. It is hot and violent. Deflegration is not a place where I want my iPhone. I have enough trouble getting mine to read a thumbprint after eating a hamburger, let alone the stressful circumstances that might occur when I would actually need to use a firearm defensively.
