Why not, they are offering these same courses throughout the US I am sure you have seen their billboards and newspaper ads. You can learn their self defense techniques for a price. Go pay for it, it will be the best money you will spend. there iverseas course I know are different than here because in the US many have guns. In most of the world foreigners can't have guns and most of the citizens in those countries are not allowed to have guns as a right like we have here. So alternative weapons training is very important generally using the most mundane objects you wouldn't even think of unless trained to think that way.

One of the main reason is I don't know how the tech really works. It was a suggestion in our last and final meeting Friday, I tired to pick his brain and all I could get was we have the technology. I know his company is one of the smart gun manufactures out there and to give way too much info could jeopardize their work.
So I went into their web site and read some of what they are trying to accomplish and I believe they do have the ability to make new guns with some sort of wifi activate or shut down mechanism. If you magnetize it. it could generate report a data lost report like I said earlier, that would notify the authorities to a malfunction of the firearm. Of which they could come and take a look at it and have it secured and sent to the manufacture for repair or replacement to the owner, or the company tech can contact you to bring the gun to the shop within a few days or report the gun and tampered with which would allow the police to come with a warrant and seize the gun.
But how this will work out in law is what we need to watch after this last gun rampage. Not saying it will be a viable plan or course of action as many ideas including mine and one from this site were suggested. Now it is a wait and see what ideas will be accepted and utilized or not.
BTW we were one of 20 groups from around the states asked to participate in this type of brainstorming ideas just after the LV mass shooting.

Let’s get back on to the subject of the gun implants, rather than the bodily ones, considering we all (mostly) know there’s no in body GPS tech strong enough.
This “chip” that’s not only a tracking device, but also a restriction device, would need the firearms to have some pretty heavy modification.
It would need to know where it is at all times (currently there’s no such thing as 100% GPS coverage)
It would need to know who is holding it (trigger or grip modifications would be needed for print reading. And we all know how bad that tech currently is)
It would need restrictions put on places, according to the OP (GPS again. How many tales have we heard of people driving into rivers due to their GPS saying they’re in a different place?)
There would also need to be some sort of “officer in trouble” fail safe (that can fail or be used and never turn off rendering it useless)
Money. Who will pay the 100s to get them modified, just for them to be as “reliable” as a mobile phone?
Lastly, what’s going to stop people not registering their weapons? Especially criminals or the “governments out to track me” folk.
Too many variables, not a single bit of evidence of a solution.
