Preferably, the inventive device is designed such that the device or the activated identification medium authenticated in response to a signal transmitted from a remote station to the device wake-up and request signal, whereupon the remote station a logical and / or physical access or access to one and allows or prevents a target device . . .

Preferably, the apparatus of the invention can be controlled remotely, for example via satellite and can send information to a satellite.


Ok as a gun owner I have mixed feelings on this.
1. States may make it mandatory for all guns to be smart guns.
2. The excuse to outlaw dumb guns.
3.The cost will probably be out of this world.

The LAST thing we need is for guns to have a remote kill switch. We would all be at the total mercy of government with no recourse.

What a terrible, unconstitutional idea.

This is just crazy, to allow a satellite or some agency the decision to fire your weapon or not. Help wanted, must be split desicion thinker. lol

Unalienable rights mean just that. Aliens cant just suspend them whenever they feel like it.
I have to admit when I heard the stories that the maker of the smart gun was being bullied and threatened I felt a bit sorry for her. that is no longer the case. She is a dirty rat.

Theres not a single gun owner on the planet who would buy this trash.

The only way this company will make any money or stay in business is if the Regime orders the slaves to buy it as they did with Obamacare.

I'd be willing to guess that the Regime and this manufacturer already have a deal in place.

Good Post! Flag and star and Whatda.

I can see these paperweights literally flying out of the
stores. And maybe the people turning them into
projectiles in their own right will be the owners.

I lived in a small city in N.Illinois for a long time before
the gun laws got quite as ridiculous as at present-- and
more people had concealed carry and advanced level
"white cards". At one of my regular haunts, a tobacco
and firearms shop, was for a few years displayed a
sporterized and quite nifty AR11, full auto capable
.308 Win. Think it came stock with a 20 round magazine.
MAybe only 15, couldn't quite tell by the untrained eye.
Somebody eventually picked it up and I asked Art:
"Who's the lucky guy?"
"An ex-cop, and you're right. She WAS lucky to
get it for only eleven hundred." That was back in '75.
Two years later I made the second biggest mistake of
my life and let my FOID expire. Think I'll fix that soon...
especially in light of this and other thread content lately.

Well if you want to buy a smart gun, go right ahead...be interesting to see how many people would buy a smart gun anyway. I would think that those who do purchase one of these guns may simply be some enthusiast who collect guns, therefore it makes no difference.

There is always a work around..

So.........

How do I still have the right to bear arms, if they have the ability to turn my arms into useless lumps of wood and steel with the push of a remote button?

Something smells a bit unconstitutional in spirit, if not letter here.

Yes a re...this this does not look good for gun owners.
But people like me active in the NRA think that this will not become a mandate.

Moronic at best.

What a lousy use of time and technology.

The only way this would work is maintaining a registration list and keeping it current. They'd get a twofer with this one. The ability to shut off any weapon anywhere and to know everybody's gun list (who, what, where, and when).

A dangerous concept indeed.

Wow, this will be a game changer for hackers across the world!

We'll have to change the old adage to don't pull out a gun unless you expect to use it to fulfill someone else's agenda.

How much does one have to pay to get on the do not hit list?

You know I was actually one of those people who thought this gun was an added bonus. I have two young kids and do not have a gun in the house because they are still too curious about things. For the record, I completely believe in our second amendment rights so please don't get on my case just because you don't like it. Though I was considering buying this, I would not expect or push it on others who prefer the real thing.

I had considered this gun, but not anymore. Kill switch my azz, control, control, control...what a bunch of jerks.

Just purchase a decent gun safe. There is no need at all for the "smart" gun crap.

Or if you gave a bolt action just temove and lock away the bolt.

unless you wanna use the stick as a club its pretty useless with the bolt remived.

From the source's translated patent application:


Preferably, the apparatus of the invention can be controlled remotely, for example via satellite and can send information to a satellite.


Seems pretty impractical in that form factor, particularly the "send information to a satellite" part. Ever see the antenna on a sat phone? Assuming they could cram everything into this form factor, it would be a simple matter to block satellite communication to/from the gun. Even the relatively simple, unidirectional communication with GPS satellites is susceptible to cloud cover, trees, structures, etc.
