Smart guns aren’t that smart

And can apparently be hacked with magnets:

“If you buy one of these weapons thinking itll be safer, it should be,” Plore says. “In this case, it was so easily defeated, in so many ways, that it really failed to live up to its side of that bargain…Misplaced trust is worse than no trust at all.”

    Of course they suck; “smart guns” were dreamed up by Progressive Marxists who hate private gun ownership.

    Like most things leftists give names to, the name is an opposite. It’s a “Stupid Gun”, concocted by stupid people, who are so mind-bogglingly stupid that they actually think they’re smarter than others.

    “Armatix spokesperson Georg Jahnen…argued that the jamming attack actually demonstrates the gun’s safety measures, since it at least failed in a safe way, rather than firing without receiving a signal from the watch.”

    Emergency life support equipment that fails to perform it’s primary function in an emergency. Yeah, that defines “safe way” to me.

    Not to mention that any technology that relies on RF can be easily jammed. I don’t see police organizations rushing out to buy these.
