Why would any sane adult want to introduce a failure point to an item your life depends on? What about hacking by criminals and the government? What if I'm incapacitated and now a family member can't continue the fight with my weapon. What happens if the watch is damaged in a violent encounter?

This is the future of common sense gun control. EVIL!

It has a 15' range?
So if your attacker gets the gun and doesn't turn around and run 20' away from you, they can just turn and shoot you?
Absolutely stupid. A 3' range would make alot more sense.
In general I don't like the idea.

I'm insulted that they put the American flag on the slide.

If I had the money the only reason I would buy something like this just as a novelty type of thing maybe to shoot a bit but not for self defense or even hunting just a range toy.

I don't trust anything that needs batteries or anything that ain't attached to the gun. For go knows how long guns have worked just fine without any type of computer chip or anything like that. So why change it? Murphy Law is written all over this...

You might want to get some background info on the full history of this cluster $&@? Before you go spewing your generalizations.

This crap started in NJ back in 2002. Kommiefornia is following their lead.

Read that again. Its 15 inches. Hell, my hand moves that far when I'm masturbating.

And what about the fact that if I wear a watch its on my left wrist but I shoot right handed? No more shooting one-handed with your off hand at your waist.

Or when its holstered the watch would frequently go out of range rendering the gun inoperable until you re-enter the code.

Many, many issues with this thing.

How much does it cost? I can't see anybody buying one. Least of all anyone who knows anything about firearms. I wonder if police would be required to use only these "smart guns" once they are implemented? If not I wonder if the major gun manufacturers would boycott California law enforcement like Ronnie Barrett did when the .50 BMG guns were banned here?
