This might be a bad approach. Better is biometric like fingerprint or an older idea of a magnetically coded ring the user would wear. Imagine if police guns got disabled. Or even ordinary civilian defense guns at home or CCW.

We have an expression for what happens when a defensive or competitive gun fails when needed. We call that the loudest click in the world.

And BTW New Jersey law says 3 years after such a gun is available, all other guns must have the feature or would be banned. I saw no provision in the law for reliability.

As a concept a truly personal gun is a good idea. In technology it is yet to happen in a reliable fashion.

On the other hand, imaging being able to automaticly deactivate all unauthorized guns entering a home, office or school.

It could also allow police to take a maniac with a gun into custody instead of killing them. It seems like a very good idea unless you’re looking to commit crimes with a gun, or suffer from wingnut fantasies about overthrowing the government.

Here’s the entire actual patent (which has been available since at least 2008) as an alternative to going to thetruthaboutguns and suffering their reactionary retardese.

As designed the Armatix is a practice gun for parents worried about safety. It’s .22lr, not a desirable home defense round. The iP1 target response system is specifically designed so that the gun cannot be used against people. It is not a self defense weapon but for target shooting only. It is not a competition firearm either, one glance at it will confirm it looks nothing like an Olympic level target pistol. This gun is designed to be an exceedingly safe plinker.

The speculated satellite / gps features would allow for a stolen gun and watch combination to be remotely deauthorized, or for a parent to specifically enable their gun only at the range to prevent a child from discharging it at home.

There probably is a market for this kind of gun and firearms technology if the nuts would allow the free market to sell it instead of threatening every FFL who even considers it.

The existence of a patently ridiculous and almost certainly unconstitutional law in New Jersey shouldn’t be used as a scare tactic to implementation to the technology. There’s no way the Supremes are going to mandate such a sweeping industry wide upheaval simply because one gun, specifically designed not to be a self defense weapon hits the market.

Imagine such a satellite system being hacked to shut down the guns of FBI agents while a Chinese spy is extracted.

Moreover, I can make an argument about needing to defend oneself against rogue police without resort to wingnut fantasies.
