That's not entirely true. The original author of that bill realized the implications and told the NRA that she was willing to repeal the bill if they dropped their opposition to 'smart guns'. They refused.
Gun advocacy groups, such as the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSA), have said they do not oppose smart gun technology, which they call "authorized user recognition" firearms.
"We do oppose any government mandate of this technology, however. The marketplace should decide," Mike Bazinet, a spokesman for the NSSA wrote in an email reply to Computerworld.
