I"m not going to finish reading a post from some one who doesn't know maths.
Except that bad guy might be you 10 year old child who figured out where you keep your spare key to you gun lock.
No, it shows how much we hate kids getting shot. and by 'We' I mean everyone but the NRA who seems to think more bullets flying around a school is a good thing.
um, no. The point of this is accidental death. SO even if 20% of the time it can be bypassed, that's still better then 100% of the time killing people accidentally.
And the mythbuster about this was pretty much laughable to anyone not from 1999.
Until you can proves 100% the innocent people will not die with a fire arm, I don't want anyone to have a gun.
wait, you can't get 100%? well then, fucking apply the same standard across the board or STFU.
There is no law that says you have to allow people to wear gloves to shoot a firearm.
Thats actually backwards.
Logically 'civilian'* uses it the least. Civilian uses should be first.
FYI, the military is looking at this, but with a broader application. Like everyone in a team can use each others firearms.
Anyways the purpose of this is to prevent accidental deaths, and of course they will work, or they won't sell anything.
*the police are also civilians.
So? you are introducing a new point of failure. everyone know this, so what?
This tech is cheap and simple. So proper maintenance would reduce it.
Guns can fail now.
So, what is the failure rate? that's the question.
If there are 1% more failures then their are now? yeah, totally worth it.
People dying from suicides is not an inflated number it s people dying due to easy access of guns.
"Another interesting fact, suicides in the US, per capita, is very similar (statistical blip) to countries with strict gun controls, which only prove that suicidal people will kill themselves, regardless of method.
that's not a fact, its what people call a lie.
I am so sick and tired of you idiot fucktwads who no nothing about suicide say stupid shit like that.
You should be shunned from society for a month for every time you post that stupid lie.
The fatality rate among suicide with a firearm is around 80%.
Hanging its around 70%
poisoning/OD/Cutting under 2%
So, without firearms, even if the same people attempted*, more would be alive.
*The higher the bar to entry, the fewer suicide, and that bar to entry doesn't have to be very high to cut suicide rates in half.
I know more about firearms then most people on slashdot.
I also know great deal about biometric technology.
Yes, this is possible.
You are being an idiot.
Yes, you post is flamebait.
Yes, the tech is possible, I'm not sure why you think it isn't. have you lived under a rock fro the last 25 years?
" I'm no gun expert,"
then shut up.
Are you a material scientist? no? then shut up.
Yeah, to bad history shows you to be wrong.
"Considering that the main reason for the existence of most speed limits is to allow the police to make extra money via the traffic tickets, I don't see a real problem with this idea."
false. Even a cursor glance at the history of speed limits shows that statement to be false.
Are there some areas the manipulate speed limits to that ends? yes, but they are few and far between.
A) Not nearly as much as they used to. It's gone from being their primary purpose to being used to support there fear mongers PR bullshit.
B) I don't know of any anti gun person who doesn't want gun safety. I can even find any article that support that premise.
C) The person who wrote the article needs to learn statistics.
D) I wouldn't want the NRA coming into my school becasue of A.
Yes, the NRA did shift theior purpose , wildly. TYhanks to Orrin Hatch.
He had a
The the NRA hire a PR firm to have keep in house PR team at the NRA.
After which the FUD, fear mongering, and lies really began.
Prior to Orrin Hatch guns where NOT considered a right for all people to have unregulated, and many states had for stricter regulation then they do right now.
Here a head scratcher: right now there are few firearm regulation then throughout all of US history.
Until 1970 States and cities could dictate firearm policy.
in the 'old west' many towns outlawed guns becasue in realty, civilized people do'n't like shooting other people. So having everyone armed didn't help much.
However not allowing any firearms helped a great deal.
But the NRA doesn't actually talk about fact.
I am a mormer member of the NRA.
I have taught my kids gun safety.
Based on actual historical data, I would rather all firearms where banned.
But, the NRA doesn't talk a bout the Well Regulated part of the same sentence the NRA use as some sort of excuse to not allow actual regulation from being put in place.
The fact that they opposed a check to ensure the purchaser is legally allowed to purchase a firearm should tell you they don't give a shit about anything rational. It doesn't help the the PR firm now dictates what the NRA does, and it's in the PR firms best interest to create fear.
Which is crap.
Who is he to think the scientists didn't think about that? It wasn't the science that was wrong, it was the corrupt software engineer.
Oh no, really smart and trained people did something I know nothing about and I disagree with. Clearly they didn't think about it..
