    The news here is that a machine is smarter than its inventor!

    "Excuse me BG, I need to take my glove off and clean the crud off my thumb so my gun will respond to me."

    "Crud, he hit me in the thumb...!"

    "Arghh! My thumb got cut!"

    And on and on and on....

    Smart guns aren't....

    I don't think he cares about the problems the weapon is almost certain to have. I think this statement says it all.
    It's not too often they admit they're interested in control instead of guns.

    No matter how inexpensive the smart gun gets, I doubt if there will be many customers. Inventor forgot the tried and true concept of, "keep it simple, stupid".

    We tested thumb print recognition technology for identification at work a few years ago. It worked fine as long as your thumb was directly centered and you gave it enough time. I'd say about 20% of the time in my case. Luckily no one using a gun is ever in a hurry and is always careful about grip.
    So, if this goes into production does that outlaw all other hand guns in New Jersey?:what:

    Let's see, it has thumb print recognition, lasers, cameras, GPS and a computer to record and store all the information supplied by these devices plus your life history, and only cost 50 percent more than a regular handgun!:rolleyes:
