Sigh: Dem Looks To James Bond Movie For Gun Control

I just, um, well, ah,

(The Hill) A House Democrat inspired by the last James Bond movie has offered legislation to produce handguns with “personalization technology.”

The idea is to produce guns that can only be used by the gun’s owners. Rep. John Tierney (D-Mass.) cited the latest James Bond movie, “Skyfall,” as inspiration for the bill.

“In the most recent James Bond film, Bond escapes death when his handgun, which is equipped with technology that recognizes him as its owner, becomes inoperable when it gets into the wrong hands,” Tierney’s office said in a statement introducing the bill. “This technology, however, isn’t just for the movies — it’s a reality.”

Under his bill (Personalized Handgun Safety Act, H.R. 2005), guns made in the United States would have to be built with this technology two years after the bill becomes law. Older guns being sold by a business or individual would have to be retrofitted with this technology after three years.

    Geeez. Does no one really read any more? This idea has been tried and pushed over the last 15 years or so. No one can develop a working method to actually accomplish this.

    Don’t these people think that if there was a valid way to make this work, that the cops of America wouldn’t be jumping on it?

    Idiocy on parade!

    Jeez doesn’t anyone know that new things can’t just be “invented” ? Police forces have been looking for this also, since 25% of all officers shot to death are killed by their own gun. Of course this could never happen to someone who does not train regularly like a police officer.

    oooooooooooooo. let me guess. this is sarcasm on john’s part. Good one. That means you are starting to evolve in your thinking process.

    John, do you believe in the “demand drives intuition”? Or to put it in another way, “Necessity is the mother of invention”? Except I think for this occasion it should be modified to “Legality is the mother of invention”.

    Maybe in 20 years, they’ll get a gun that is accurate, sensitive and aware enough to not be deadly to the officer wielding it, but for now, no law enforcement division in the world has chosen to take up this technology.

    That should tell you something john.
