Like beta max or DVD HD? BTW... how did you like the taste of new coke?

More like Deep Learning Machine Beats Humans in IQ Test. But you keep trying to keep up in your quixotic quest. It's funny.

All I am saying is given the minimal demand for the gun, as Armitix has declared "bankruptcy" how do you think it's going to become popular?

Smart Guns can go kiss my butt. There is a reason why the police and federal law enforcement (secret sevice) are given exemptions even when the smart guns were created, in part, for them.

If the police and army does not trust them, I sure as hell will not.

P.S. They are now researching tech to block a smart gun from firing to have gun free zones. Given how easy people "jailbreak" phones and how common this tech could get, I will NEVER rely on a smart gun.

I'm sure this sort of attitude will help broker a compromise.

I was speaking of a smart gun as a concept, not a specific product by a specific manufacturer.

Do you think one bankruptcy will stop the search to secure guns against illicit use?

Once ALL local, state, federal and military branches adopt only smart guns for a period of 15 years then perhaps you may find buyers.

No. But it may make it more difficult. Where would the capital investors come from? As an investor I am concerned about profit and with a lack of demand you will have a hard time to convenience me to place my money in that company.

Cogent objections, no doubt. The thing is, at this point, overcoming ingrained bias has to lead the way, because money rarely, if ever, follows controversy.

We still have violence and all. I don't think any country is 100% safe. I wouldn't recommend a female to go hitchhiking alone or walking down dark alleys etc.

Because we're citizens -

And you're subjects.


It's really that simple.

America reminds me of Patrician Rome. And we know what became of that republic.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Yeah... about that. I know that pepper spray is considered a serious weapon there as well as a TASER. Furthermore, some sentiments on even legalizing pepper spray is met with resistance. Additionally, I believe carrying objects that have a defensive purpose and if used as such will get the overbearing eye of the CPS (if you are not arrested, first).

Sounds like a victim mentality. No thanks. You guys can be fairly defenseless and submit to an aggressors will.

Yup. Government likes to pat us on the head and tell us our opinions matter.
