Comment: Cost vs Reward. (Score 1) 228

How much is this going to increase the price of an oven. And how often will parts need to be replaced and the cost to do such. Currently ovens may be inefficient, but they work, and don't break very often when they do its a case of a cheap fix, or replace the stove.

i would not want to see what the optical sensor would cost to replace, or the specialized elements. i cant see the cost of one of these stoves being anywhere close to the reward you get out of possibly faster cooking/energy saving.

The accidental shootings that would be stopped with this. can be stopped in much easier ways than by crippling the rights of hundreds of thousands of people. "Accidental shootings" i use quotes because there is no such thing as an accident, it is preventable. the parents have foolishly left a firearm laying around, the parents have not taught their children how dangerous guns are, and not taught them firearm safety. my 6 year old has better safety practices than many of the customers i serve every day.

trigger locks are only there to make it slower for someone with the key to open it. i work in a firearms store and routinely have to take trigger locks off hunting rifles because the person has left the key at home. takes me a max of 15 seconds to remove a trigger lock with a screwdriver, and the lock is still in useable condition.

so you are saying you want a gun you can leave laying willy nilly around the house and be safe for your child to pick up ?. sorry that screams fecking retard to me.

if you don't want your kids to accidentally use the gun. LOCK IT UP. there are handgun safes that are fast to open, or keep it holstered. i have been using firearms since i was 5. never has there been one left out where i could have played with it without supervision. anyone that leaves a firearm available for a child or anyone other than the legal owner to touch and play with is an idiot.

If it was designed for them, they would store them correctly to remove any chance of a child shooting someone. And with proper training somone is not going to have themselves disarmed and the gun used on them. So where is the need of a smart gun ?

Really a smart gun is a solution for idiots that dont know anything about firearms ownership or firearms training.

And do what about the anti gun people screaming for people to be killed for wanting to own guns ? Or perhaps the people wanting the bundy supporters killed by drone.

I rarely see LEGAL gun owners saying they want to see people killed. I see and hear it all the time coming from the anti gun people. Who comes off as violent when gun owners take abuse and insults and threats from anti's ?

Based on the description of someone in a hoody casing houses at night. i don't give a damn if the persons skin is red, white black yellow or freaking rainbow. if i see someone fitting the description of a person performing B&E's im going to follow the guy and find out what he/she/it is doing. to much of this political correct BS out there these days. to many people worried about offending someone else.

Martin was a shit rat plain and simple. he had been suspended numerous times for beating people senseless in school. bragged about it to his friends and gf, bragged about owning an illegal firearm.

Don't take for granted everything you see on the news and read in the news. if they are willing to edit a 911 audio tape to change what zimmerman said into something racist, they are more than willing to lie and leave out information. (like the pictures used a 12YO martin when he was actually 19 and had a good half foot on zimmerman, not to mention the physical body strength). but lets not let facts cloud peoples emotional idea's about this case.

i really dont see a problem with harassing someone casing houses at 2am in a gated community that has had a history of B & E's. sorry to be the bearer of bad news but id rather offend people and keep my home and others safe than let people do whatever and have my house or someone elses broken into.

there was no racial profiling. Zimmerman saw someone in a black hoodie. he said he THOUGHT the guy was black but wasn't sure. you will also note. that zimmerman will be going to court with i believe msnbc for their part in doctoring the 911 call to make it sound like he was profiling.

that and the phone record from martins girlfriend of the time with him using racial slurs towards zimmerman and telling him he was going to die. but zimmerman is the bad guy for defending himself.

and Martin was close to 6' tall a football player, and experienced street thug who enjoyed beating people into the ground.
Zimmerman was a shorter 5'6" and overweight, and no experience in hand to hand combat.

by the logic here. a woman of 5'2" would get reamed for shooting a killing a rapist who was bigger and stronger than her.
