Terrydatroll: Secondly, I am sure that the guy breaking into my house with is OWN gun won't be able to shoot me because MY gun has palm reading technology. "One moment while I read your palm! Whirr zzzzz zip...OK, according to you palm reading, you have just been shot by a burglar. Palm signing out..whizz..whirr...zzzz..zip."
timujin: This concept has been out for a long time, well before this movie. I remember reading about prototypes back in the late 90's or early 00's. I think they were looking into it for law enforcement at the time, so criminals couldn't take a cop's gun.
HoityToity: Mock26:You should use your middle finger. Seriously. I forget the name of this style, but the idea behind it is to lay your index finger alongside the barrel, pointing forward, and use your middle finger to fire. The idea is that humans have the innate ability to point their middle finger accurately at just about anything. It is not good if you are trying to shoot coins or nail that bull's eye ring, but for larger targets it is supposed to be quite accurate.Sure, great idea. I love it when the slide slices off most of my index finger.
Mikeyworld: There isn't a trigger safety that can stop a gun from killing someone when they want you dead. The safest thing that could done to protect the citizenry from wanton acts of gun violence is to make any use of firearms in the commission of a crime punishable by death. Yes, the death penalty for using a firearm while committing a crime. There has to be a conviction on the crime before this can be enacted, but it would thin the herd a little (there will always be those who will have guns, just less of them)./any crime will do. It's the gun that counts//also, register and limit bullets///
Ethertap: There's a pawn shop on the way home from work that has a banner advertising $99 9mm pistols. That's pretty cheap, although I'm guessing that the guns are pretty crappy.
id10ts: No, THIS is the weapon we need to develop.[scienceblogs.com image 355x199] /hot like Leia in a bikini
dittybopper: Terrydatroll: dittybopper: iheartscotch: It would also significantly increase the price of firearms.That's the real reason behind it: So poor minorities can't afford them.The sad thing is that if poor minorities could not afford guns then 97% of America's gun problems would disappear. 92% is black on black anyway, so I really don't see a problem.I do see a problem, because not every poor black person is a criminal. Yes, crime tends to be concentrated in that demographic, as I've pointed out numerous times on Fark, but I've *NEVER*, *EVER* advocated a blatantly racist "Hey, our problems would be over if we prevented blacks from owning guns" viewpoint.That's just farkin' wrong, sad or not.

madgonad: This has been available for at least 20 years. The cheapest way to do this is to have the user wear a ring which must be held next to the weapon for it to fire. The NRA lobbied heavily against it.
Voiceofreason01: Or you could keep your gun secured when you're not using it and buy a $10 trigger lock.
