New Jersey has enacted legislation that will eventually mandate "smart guns". Notice that once again law enforcement is exempt. This shows the fundamental non-logic of this requirement. It is among law enforcement that the technology - if it had any use - would be appropriate. A fair percentage of police officers being shot are shot by their own sidearms. Law enforcement use should be the first application of such technology if it was reliable enough to foist onto anyone. But the reality is that few people want any part of making a firearm less reliable - which can be the only result. Sometine in the future we'll learn of someone killed because their personal defense handgun wouldn't fire when it was most needed. When that happens I will wish that New Jersey's McGreevey is personally sued.
But this is not a surprise as almost all gun control legislation are frauds.
