One of the newer pushes by many anti-gun fanatics is smart gun technology which is supposed to make a gun safer and only useable by the guns owner and no one else. Many of them use a fingerprint recognition technology where the gun’s technology will not allow the gun to be fired by anyone except the one and only gun owner.
However, even the gun touted as being the number 1 top smart gun can easily be transformed into a very expensive useless chunk of metal that cannot be used by anyone, even the owner.
How many times have you been told to never place a magnet close to a computer or a computer disk? Using $15 worth of magnets, a hacker effectively bypassed the smart gun’s locking mechanism. But, wait, there is more! The same hacker showed how easy it was to make the gun totally unusable to the owner, making the expensive smart gun useless.
Despite decades of the reports that smart guns are based on theoretical technology that does not work in reality, leftists have gravitated to the German manufactured Armatix IP1 as the smart gun of the future.
Problem #1: A hacker at a Colorado shooting range just showed how to completely sidestep the gun’s lock mechanism via the use of $15 of magnets.
Problem #2: The same hacker showed how to the lock the gun—when it is supposed to be in fire mode—so that the gun’s owner cannot use it in self-defense.
The Armatix IP1 is designed to work when in close proximity with a watch that emits a certain radio frequency…
The major objection that many find with smart guns is that no one else in a family can use the gun for self-defense. There have been many reports of a wife or older child being at home when someone broke into their home or tried to break into the home. They used the husband’s – dad’s gun to defend themselves. Had it been a smart gun, they would have been victims instead of victors.
