From the article:


A new technology that could allow authorities and others to literally “turn off” guns by remote control has been patented.
German arms maker Armatix GmbH has filed a patent for an improved smart pistol that can be shut down by a wireless signal.
“Preferably, the apparatus of the invention can be controlled remotely, for example via satellite and can send information to a satellite,” the European patent application for the gun says.
Armatix already makes one smart gun, the iP1 Personalized Pistol, that can only be fired by a person wearing an “Intelligent Watch.” The watch sends out a wireless identification signal that activates a chip in the gun. The new pistol would have that feature and the remote control capacity.

Do you reckon this story was planted by gun manufacturers in the good ol' US of A so that everyone rushes out to stock up before the NWO can introduce this latest in a long line of fiendish plans?

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

My old 22 rifle is tech proof.    How popular are these guns going to be?

If it works.  Which I doubt it being possible.  And there's one other thing:  how in the heck are they going to market such a weapon to ANYONE?  No one in their right mind would want one of those.

They may have trouble marketing something like that here in the US, but not in other countries where gun control is the norm, not the aberrance.

This discussion will heat up when such  DE- activation chips are made mandatory on all new guns.  :w00t:

Oh, I agree with that, but in those countries that lack the desire for self-protection, why would this gun make any sort of difference?  Why by this gun at all?
