Default New "Smart rifle"

WFAA/CNN) – Long range shooting just got a whole lot easier.

A Texas company has developed what's believed to be the world's first smart rifle.
The weapon calculates almost every variable, even clocking moving targets up to ten MPH.

Using a fighter jet's target locking system, a shooter sets a tag, matches up the crosshairs and fires.

The cost for the base model is just over $22,000.

Not everyone is excited about the new gun technology.

One gun victims advocate group calls the rifle a threat to safety.

Because criminals regularly spend 22k on a sniper rifle to use in knocking over the local liquor store, right?
