New York Democrats don’t want law-abiding citizens to be able to defend themselves, even in their own homes. Rep Carolyn Maloney has introduced a bill into the US House that would not only require all handguns being manufactured to be smart guns, but also require all handguns already in the homes of people to be retrofitted to make them smart guns. Smart guns are actually DUMB guns and they will result in more people being victims of violent crimes.
In an effort to improve gun safety, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) has reintroduced The Handgun Trigger Safety Act, forward-thinking legislation to use new and emerging technology to prevent gun deaths. The bill would promote the development of new “smart gun” technology that only allows an authorized user to fire a gun. It would also mandate that all newly manufactured handguns use this technology within five years, and that existing handguns be retrofitted with this technology within ten years. Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) will introduce a companion version in the Senate.
“How many more kids have to die? How many more police officers have to be killed with their own weapon before we come to our senses?” said Rep. Maloney. “We wouldn’t drive in cars or use baby cribs that didn’t adopt the latest safety technology, and we shouldn’t use guns that don’t take advantage of this technology either…
A so-called smart gun will only allow 1 person to use the gun. If that person is not home when some breaks into a home while other family members are there, they will not be able to use the gun to defend themselves. This will mean more wives and daughters will be sexually assaulted and raped in their own homes. More sons will be beaten and all other family members will be left at the mercy of the intruder(s), but hey, Democrats don’t care about anyone’s safety.
