Seriously, though, could this technology one day be made wireless and - if so - could the Government turn off the guns belonging to "X"? Or require the presence of a government-issue chip in order to make the firearm functional?
Maybe it seems like tin foil stuff at first, but I don't doubt that universal gun registration and such wireless technology would one day combine along those lines.
It is best if government maintains a healthy respect for an independent, armed citizenry. I don't see how this German technology improves or promotes such a relationship.
With a plastic cowl/cape in the original blister pack in good shape allegedly some $7K .....
I'd guess that if that happened, a few million people would hang on to their/our old-fashioned guns with no electronic gizmos, illegal or not. We have no moral obligation nor Constitutional requirement to comply with unreasonable laws that restrict our Constitutionally supported rights.
