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

Crazy logic to dismiss airbags as ‘just reduce some damage’ an airbag saved my wife’s life and they save thousands of injuries and lives every year and with all the evidence we have that’s supports these facts to argue against does not make sense.

I agree that training improves safety and reduces but human error occurs and accidents do happen sometimes with deadly consequences.

As far as hacking the trigger you miss the point and its not as easy as you think. You don’t know what your talking about. We are proposing childproof guns mainly that would be tamper proof in the hands of a child. 12,000 accidental discharge injuries annually in the USA and 800 fatalities mostly are children under 18 www.gunpolicy.org  also smart guns are harmless to an intruder in the home or the criminal that disarms a law enforcement officer.

Human beings are always the root and basis of all problems. We need to look at ourselves first.

Reckless/Careless/Dangerous driving is the key factor here. Airbag just reduce some damage, it doesn't eliminate the accidents. Thinking too much of technology only give irresponsible people some more excuses for not being thoughtful to others.  

At certain level it solves some of the problem we faced, but it's only a small portion. It's good to have some new tech every now and then, but maybe at the same time it just give those politicians more tools to distract people from the real problems. 

As for the smart trigger, won't any hacker tackle the trigger and render it useless? Won't the real owner just snapped and go out and do things? 

 

 

Find ways to stop people supporting those lobbyists. Teach people what's the right thing to do. And don't use democracy as your excuse here. Save lives and give kids better future is the ultimate democracy.

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.
