RE: [newtech-1] TriggerSmart child proof RFID smart guns

Technology has been successful in several areas of social health matters notably air bags in cars. I think we all agree that they are a safety benifit and rather have them in cars than not have them. Although before airbags became law they were vigorously opposed by the auto industry. Only when Japanese imported cars with airbags were imported and manufacturers were successfully sued for corporate irresponsibility did the Auto industry change policy.

Technology sucks at solving social problems, it only provides the tools to make them easier or harder to solve, but not the basis of the solution.

You make a good point, Dean, re: involvement & interest depending upon the ethnic background of the victims. It took about three days -- much longer than it usually does -- before some interviewee said that phrase that is like fingernails on a blackboard to me: "something like this isn't supposed to happen here." As if there are officially-designated "school massacre zones" or something. SMDH

But as I said, technology isn't and will never be THE answer, but it is A PART of the answer. Because the status quo is simply untenable.
