  • Or you could keep your gun secured when you're not using it and buy a $10 trigger lock.
  • Because if someone breaks into my house and is pointing a gun at me, I want my gun to have to verify i'm holding it before I shoot them. Because finger print readers are so accurate that I don't have to swipe my finger several times to use laptops that require them or go into an area that uses fingerprints.

    A better solution might be an RFID implant in your palm that it's reading. That way if your hands are dirty or anything like that, it won't stop you from shooting someone/something when you want to.
  • No. If I need a gun to work, I need it to work. Not crash, have dead batteries, reboot, whatever. The worst sound you can hear is a click when you were expecting a bang.
  • Like you can't disconnect the locking mechanism...
  • Before the public is burdened with this nonsense, I recommend that it be tested with law enforcement and the military. Once it passes those field tests then and only then should it be considered safe enough for public use.  Those organizations exist to protect the populace, if it doesn't work for them, it CERTAINLY isn't good enough for the general public

    Man, I can only imagine the Alex Jones' Infowars freakout if the government started requiring RFID chips in gun owners.

    You could put an RFID in a ring on your finger. Of course if you forget to wear the ring then you are farked.
  • For absolutely no practical reason, I want to fire one of those crazy drum mag Glock 18s.
  • This concept has been out for a long time, well before this movie. I remember reading about prototypes back in the late 90's or early 00's. I think they were looking into it for law enforcement at the time, so criminals couldn't take a cop's gun.
  • There are ways around this....

    Don't use a trigger lock. It's a mechanical finger near the trigger.

  • weapon we should actually make


    The tactical hydraulic scoop shovel? Very useful on trains.
  • LOL, reboot your gun, are you feeling lucky, punk?

    Don't I know it:

  • Didn't License to Kill have a biometric-locked gun?
  • This has been available for at least 20 years. The cheapest way to do this is to have the user wear a ring which must be held next to the weapon for it to fire. The NRA lobbied heavily against it.
  • There's a reason that fingerprint recognizing guns are fiction. Frankly, it's too complicated.

    It would also significantly increase the price of firearms. And has no one watched the movie angels and demons? All it takes is someone cutting your hand off to use your gun.

    Sums up my thoughts completely.

    Besides, it would only take a few people getting killed because it didn't work properly for the manufacturer of such firearms to be sued out of business or at least to stop making them.

    Wouldn't you freak out?

    I certainly would, and the only time I listen to Alex Jones (which has to be done on shortwave to get the full conspiratorial flavor*) is for the comedic value.

    *You can listen to a radio broadcast surreptitiously, with no way for the government to know you are listening unless they are very close by.
  • This idea has been around for awhile...

    Little known fact: The police agencies also lobbied against it being a requirement for them. Why is that?
  • give a nerd a challenge from authority and there will be a way around it. Remember: we created an eighth day of the week to fark with you or get even.
  • They've had this technology for about a decade now. And the problem with it is still that it doesn't work.
