And a comment on the story also pointed out another major flaw. Once people figure out how to read the RFID tags, then the criminals can just drive
around scanning the neighborhood, interrogating every firearm, until they find the one they want. Wait until the people leave home, and go get it.
They won’t have to search the house. They just have to follow the signal like a homing beacon.
Once they have the gun, then they can zap the RFID, and hit the road.
They could catalog all the guns in the neighborhood. Criminals could almost offer a shopping list to potential buyers.
The other problem is if the gun is in a safe, then the police will not get a response. So, if criminal gets a response from the weapon while driving
down the road, in front of the house, then you know the gun is out in the open, and easy to get to.
