Smart Guns: Life Savers or 2nd Amendment Violators?

i dont understand the opposition to this next step in the evolution of the firearm . sure, unhinged folk could still lawfully obtain these pieces and commit crimes but the sudden drop in tragic accidents by kids who play with weapons owned by irresponsible parents or guns taken by disturbed kids who intend to commit violence would help calm a huge portion of the anti gun crowd. a number of people are shot by their own weapons. with these, if your gun finds itself in someone elses hands you could just run a few feet away and render the weapon useless. there would be no incentive to steal such a weapon. if the concern is that the cops could turn off your guns i would seriously question the mental stability of anyone who feels the specific need to own a weapon capable of shooting at law enforcment, such people shouldnt own guns. if one finds themselves in such a situation they certanly arent going to win and walk away victorious. the only possable thing they could hope to accomplish is greater tragedy and a longer prison sentance (or death).
instead of incouraging the development of civillian arms to go stagnant lets let it flourish, because i want a laser rifle some day

As mentioned in the previous posts.... I will not trust my life to a chinese made circuit board for one, and two, no way in hell I will take any chance with electronics on a firearm that can be disabled ever.
