Default Question on gun law

Hi guys,

I have a question for you all.

According ot a newspaper article in the Financial Times Germany, there seems to be one state in the US, that has it in the law, that only electrnicly secured firearms will be allowed to be sold, as soon as they are available.

Is this true and what state is this?

Reason for my question is, that a company called Armatix produced such electronicly secured weapons and wants to make a Magnum revolver for the US market. There newest produkt at the moment is a semi auto pistol in .22, that will only fire, if it is aimed at a special target, not to forget the version, that requires a biometrical permissin to be used.

Do you know of any authorities asking for such firearms for duty purpose?

There was a movement to make biometric enabled guns mandatory. That was the topic discussed by the preveious owners of Smith and Wesson (Tompkins) and the ATF that caused so much heartburn with the American shooting public.

As of now, I know of no such technology. There certainly is no law mandating such technology, yet.

I don't even know which state might have been rumored to do something like that. Maybe California?

Somewhere on the forum is another thread about this subject. I know that Dzscubie stated that he saw them at the SHOT Show and offered his take on the idea.

I mentioned this a few months ago regarding the company Armatix, that make and try to sell biometric gun safeties.
They have produced a cal. .22 pistol, that will only work in combination with a special watch, that has the fingerprint reader built in it.

here is the video clip to that system, taken at a gun show here last year:

Guys, I picked this up in a different forum and thought you might be interested.

FOXNews.com - New Jersey Smart Gun Legislation Enacted - Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum

Quote:
2C:39-1. dd. "Personalized handgun" means a handgun which incorporates within its design, and as part of its original manufacture, technology which automatically limits its operational use and which cannot be readily deactivated, so that it may only be fired by an authorized or recognized user. The technology limiting the handgun's operational use may include, but not be limited to: radio frequency tagging, touch memory, remote control, fingerprint, magnetic encoding and other automatic user identification systems utilizing biometric, mechanical or electronic systems. No make or model of a handgun shall be deemed to be a "personalized handgun" unless the Attorney General has determined, through testing or other reasonable means, that the handgun meets any reliability standards that the manufacturer may require for its commercially available handguns that are not personalized or, if the manufacturer has no such reliability standards, the handgun meets the reliability standards generally used in the industry for commercially available handguns.


Quote:
2C:58-2. a. (5) No handgun shall be delivered to any person unless:
(e)On and after the first day of the sixth month following the date on which the list of personalized handguns is prepared and delivered pursuant to section 3 of P.L.2002, c.130 (C.2C:58-2.4), the handgun is identified as a personalized handgun and included on that list or is an antique handgun. The provisions of subparagraph (d) of this section shall not apply to the delivery of a personalized handgun.

How do you get the bad guy to wear the target?

New Jersey would have been my first guess. Hopefully Christie, the new Gov, will get things straightened out...can't rely on SCOTUS.
