Gun control advocates are desperate to find some way to keep us all safe by saying guns are the problem. They lobby for laws to keep guns out of our hands, and, when those fail, they try to keep us all safe from guns by creating “smartguns” which have computerized lockouts.

Now, we can argue about whether smartguns are a good idea, whether it’s to protect young children from accidental discharges (a good thing) or as some kind of supposed deterrent to keep criminals from stealing guns to use in other illegal activities. The problem with either of these lines of thought is the idea that smartguns can actually protect people by preventing a discharge.

But that is not the case. An ammoland article notes,

According to an article in Wired magazine, the $1,800 .22 LR pistol that made such a splash with gun controllers upon its debut is easily hacked. It can be activated (or deactivated) at distance from authorized users. Its locking mechanism can be defeated by holding magnets, that anyone can buy online, against the slide. And the equipment to do these things is readily available and costs less than a trip to the movies.

The hacker profiled in the article – who goes by the pseudonym Plore – told Wired, “I was confident I’d be able to break it … I didn’t think it would be so easy.”

Look, the fact of the matter is (and any hacker worth their salt will tell you), any security can be hacked, and it’s usually a lot simpler than people think. In many cases, it’s simply knowing how to trick people into giving the hacker the information that they want. In this case, it’s simply using two magnets to make the gun fire, making the “smart technology” meaningless. Here is a video about the Wired magazine story:

It simply comes down to this: gun safety still comes down to knowledge about safe usage of firearms and this only comes through knowledge, training, and firearm usage, and nothing else will work.

Of all the crazy reasons to ban guns, this has to be the dumbest. Ar-15’s are totally impractical for most common criminals due to their size, In a world where the vast majority of crimes are committed with handguns, the Ar-15 rules the roost as the home owners weapon of choice.

According to these whacked-out leftists, that isn’t fair to criminals.

Watch Steve Crowders incredulous reaction to this insane argument:

Is this social justice for murders? We need an even playing field for murders? The reality is that the Ar-15 truly is the “good guys” gun. Almost never used in crimes while simultaneously being THE most popular self-defense rifle in America. The left just can’t get over that fact.

This was a pretty intense stand off between a guy who just robbed a check cashing store and the police. When the robber decided to take a hostage, things escalated.

In the video below, an Irving Police officer takes the shot of his life:

 

The commentary from the guy recording the incident is spot on. He deserved it! The Police aren’t going to let you retreat to your safe space when you’re holding a hostage and a gun. These kind of hostage situations don’t normally end well for the suspect. Instead of a decade or two in prison, the suspect loses his life.

Here’s the run down:

“The two officers were here quickly, within minutes and were able to engage the suspect,” he said. “They couldn’t let him leave with the hostage. … By all appearances, this was the last resort for them.”

Other store employees hid in a locked room during the robbery. They and the woman were taken to police headquarters to be interviewed.

Friday’s armed robbery was not the first reported at the store. It also was robbed Jan. 13, McLellan said. In all, about a dozen check-cashing stores across the Dallas-Fort Worth area have been robbed since November, including the Jan. 7 hold-up of a store in north Irving, he said.

Irving police detectives and internal affairs officers as well as the public integrity unit of the Dallas County district attorney’s office were investigating Friday’s incident.

This is why you train. An easy high percentage shot against a paper target, will be more difficult with an adrenaline rush and 95% accuracy isn’t good enough in a hostage situation.
