In Liberal Fascist America, Everything Is For Safety, and Nothing Is For Liberty

The Captain’s Journal » Manufacturers Dabble In Smart Guns

There are even old school shooters who don’t believe in such a thing as the grip safety (Beaver tail) on my XDm.  I am not among that crowd, but the notion that I would rely on a gun with solid state electronics for my own protection is absurd, leaving aside the problems I have with it being amenable to governmental control.

That right there is the killer.

You can bet that the state would demand that these “smart guns” have some sort of means of allowing officials to disable those weapons “for safety purposes.”

I would imagine all SWAT teams, and maybe even regular cops, would have the ability to “turn off” your firearm.  Wouldn’t want them kicking down the doors of any innocent citizens who are able to defend themselves.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
