I will try once again to explain to the ignorant why this will NEVER, EVER work, no matter how much you want it to.
It will do nothing about firearms already in existence, which, depending on whose numbers you use, are between 350 million and 1.2 billion. Yes, that’s in the US.
Lawsuits will kill it. The first time an authorized shooter, cop or citizen, pulls the trigger, nothing happens, and the bad guy’s gun works, they or their family will sue. I need it to FAIL TO THE UNLOCK STATE.
The first time an unauthorized shooter is able to access it, the victims will sue. The mfr needs it to FAIL TO THE LOCK STATE. It cannot do both.
Any disclaimer that the mfr is not responsible for failure of the lock means no one will buy.
There’s no guarantee said gun will fit the ergonomics and tastes of existing shooters. People who don’t shoot seem to think all guns are the same. Every brand, model, and even individual guns are different. I don’t care how safe it is, if it feels like, say a Beretta 92, I will never buy one. Others don’t like Glocks.
Guns are increasingly mechanically very simple. It needs repeated to you, no matter what the electronic component is, there will be a simple way to bypass it. If not bypassed, it can be jailbroken.
Your spouse/partner/buddy/trained kids/companion needs to be able to use it if you’re down or not available.
Now, does this thing use batteries? Do I need to comment on that?
