Heh, what a cute idea.

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.

Yeah, and the police immediately got legislation passed banning any kind of automatic
lock-outs for any police issue firearms, forever... (and rightly so!)

You would still have a problem with legal gun owners accidentally shooting someone while intoxicated. Fortunately there is a solution for this as well. Build a breathalizer into the barrel of the gun. You simply blow into the barrel of your gun. If you are sober, it will unlock for normal use. If you are drunk, it will immediately fire off a round to ensure the problem will never happen again.

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."

Apparently the consensus is that this idea won't work, because today's computers take seconds to process a kilobyte of data, all the while making clockwork noises.

it doesn't matter what you make illegal when it comes to guns. Criminals will just make their own because it's easy and cheap.

don't believe me? check out this rural Pakistani villiage that makes aasault rifles and semi-automatic pistols with techniques that haven't changed much since the Iron age.


The only thing any Anti-Gun legislation ever prevents is a law abiding citizen protecting themselves.

give a nerd a challenge from authority and there will be a way around it. Remember: we created an eighth day of the week to fark with you or get even.

wee: No. If I need a gun to work, I need it to work. Not crash, have dead batteries, reboot, whatever. The worst sound you can hear is a click when you were expecting a bang.

Don't I know it:

For absolutely no practical reason, I want to fire one of those crazy drum mag Glock 18s.
