Weapons Wednesday: An Actual Test of the Armatrix “Smart Gun”

The so-called “smart gun” is rearing its ugly head again recently, with the latest concerted push for gun control masquerading as “safety measures.”

It turns out that the NRA actually tested it in 2014.

And found it severely wanting.

First, it’s important to note this: “In truth, NRA has never opposed smart guns, believing the marketplace should decide their future. Rather, NRA opposes government mandates of expensive, unproven technology, and smart guns are a prime example of that.”

Then, they get down to brass tacks. I invite you to read the whole article, and then ask yourself, would you bet your life and your spouse’s or child’s, or fellow soldier’s / Marine’s / officer’s  life on it?

I want nothing to do with it, and I want even less to be told that I have to embrace it. My guns are fine as they are, they function as designed and I see to it that are kept in a state of readiness and not misused. Keep your foolish “smart” technology.
