Michael Bloomberg’s Latest Obsession: Smart Guns

The general gun control narrative has taken a back seat. A lot of the Democrats running for president in 2020 are shying away from talking about gun laws. They know, like so many before them, that it’s a losing topic. That doesn’t stop certain prominent Democratic figures from continuing to push the narrative.

As usual, Trump-hating media mogul Michael Bloomberg is the thought leader in this effort. His latest tactic is to push smart guns. It’s a technology that no manufacturer in the world is ready to mass produce, but he’s obsessed with it all the same.

What Is a Smart Gun?

Plenty of you are familiar with the concept, but let’s be thorough. A smart gun is a device that can detect its user and prevent firing if an unauthorized user handles the firearm. You’ve certainly seen examples of it in science fiction, but there are technologies today that could make such a gun a reality. Entire prototypes have been developed.

In most cases, biometric locks are used to determine whether a user is the owner of the firearm or not. The same biometrics that make for fast-unlocking gun safes can be put into the weapon itself. From there, a simple safety mechanism can lock the firing pin.

The theory pushed by proponents of smart guns is that this mechanism improves safety. A child can’t accidentally shoot themselves with their parent’s weapon. Perhaps more importantly a stolen weapon can never be used to commit a crime. These are the ideals, but in practice, there are always methods to circumvent safety protocols, and there’s always a cost to anything. We’ll cover that in a bit, but first we have to get to Michael Bloomberg.

Bloomberg’s Ridiculous Conspiracy Theory

Using his own paper for propaganda, Bloomberg is pushing the narrative that smart guns would be everywhere by now if not for the NRA. After all, the first smart gun technology was developed in the late 90s. Smith & Wesson even developed a prototype, but they were never able to take it to market.

Bloomberg asserts that legislation killed the smart gun, and legislators did this at the behest of the NRA. He also says this was done in spite of the fact that 60 percent of gun owners want a smart gun.

Let’s inject some truth into all of this. First, legislation has inhibited the production of smart guns. The things is, that legislation didn’t come from the NRA. Restrictive requirements on gun manufacturers almost all come from the left. Democratic rules are what make it nearly impossible for manufacturers to produce a smart gun that is legally compliant.

Secondly, that statistic about gun owners isn’t entirely honest. Sure, a lot of gun owners would be curious about smart guns and want to play with one. Every gun channel on YouTube would have a demonstration video. That doesn’t mean that the majority of gun owners would want to exclusively own smart guns. It just means that it’s a novelty item that might sell enough to justify the cost of development. It also might not.

Here’s the biggest truth about why manufacturers aren’t crazy about developing smart guns. The core crowd of gun owners isn’t thrilled with the idea. Novelty aside, smart mechanisms only introduce more potential failure points. Anyone who uses a firearm for defense (whether from people or animals) understands why this is a dangerous addition to their trusty weapon.

On top of that, smart guns make it really hard to show people how to shoot. Pretty much everyone learns to shoot by firing someone else’s weapon. Parents who want to teach their kids, friends, and firearm instructors would all shy away from smart guns.

Inalienable Rights

That, of course, is the ulterior motive. If smart guns are widely manufactured, plenty of states will be able to pass laws that prohibit the sale of any guns that aren’t smart. Once that’s in place, it’s a lot harder to introduce newcomers to firearms. The smart gun is a mechanism that Bloomberg wishes he could use to prevent the next generation from ever learning how to handle a firearm. It’s a technology aimed at disarming the population.

This and every other fight over guns and regulations always comes back to the same thing. The left doesn’t want to save lives. If they did, getting rid of doctors would save more people than banning guns. Seriously.

The goal is to disarm the population. The left wants to instill a dictatorship in our country, and the biggest obstacle they face is the 100+ million gun owners in this country. As gun owners, we know that this is the endgame, and it’s why we’ll continue to fight every step of the way.

  1. MR. Bloomberg
    Why is it everywhere you go you have a group of armed security guards with you, what are you so affair of?
    Do you really think that you are that important, I personally could care less if I got up tomorrow an read that you had passed away.
    In my book, it would be just one less democRAT.

  2. If Bloomberg would like to foot the bill o develop a smart gun, all for it. If not forget it.

    We should also have smart politicians at least with an IQ of one above plant life.

  3. To quote Bugs Bunny: “OH HARRIETT, HEA WE GO AGAIN!” Also, I see Mr Bloomberg has tried to wear a laser groove in his DVD of the movie ‘Logan’s Run’ again too!

    Hey Bloomers! Listen up NUMB NUTS we’re wise to your bull shit! I’ve got another truth for you too BAKA! You claim that an eighteen year old isn’t responsible enough to be armed, but their responsible enough to volunteer for the military. Well, then I guess that makes them responsible enough to be armed huh? What the hell do you think the military trains marksmanship skills with TINKER TOYS?

    I’ve got a real silly idea for you but I’ll bet that you don’t have the balls to do it! Yeah, why don’t you carry your globalist, RICHY RICH BOY, SCUM BAG, ELITIST ASS TO ARLINGTON CEMETERY AND TELL THEM THAT!

    1. David, you couldn’t have said it any better! All these anti gun morons starting with the Muslim Odumbo, are looking to disarm America so we can be vulnerable to mass shootings like Paris and the rest of those countries. They’re so hell bent on taking guns from us legal gun owners but don’t have the balls to clean up the guns on our streets. Meantime they don’t shit without a armed guard outside the door!! If we don’t stand up for Our 2nd Amendment Rights these cowards will eventually get their wet dream. After visiting Arlington how about they go to a vet’s hospital and walk the streets thanking the homeless veterans for sacrificing their lives to keep these scumbags free to continue trying to disarming Our Country. Semper Fi.

  4. The biometrics science is still primitive. It does not work consistent or properly. Now here is a person anti gun trying to sell gun technology. This is such a ruse it is pathetic. A wealthy NYer who has armed guards wherever he goes dictating to the masses what THEY should do. Do as I say not as I do Medieval KING telling the SERFS ( Us) what to do. Its time to drag the Guillotine out and behead some of these wealthy KINGS who continue to dictate Socialism to the rest of us in a free country that made HIM wealthy.

  5. “DR PRESCRIBED PRESCRIPTIONS KILL OVER HALF A MILLION PEOPLE A YEAR!” Put your money where your mouth is you POS and do something about that!!

  6. PASS AND SPREAD TO ALL YOU KNOW!!!The DDD(Dumb,Dumber,demonrats) want a socialist USA. Obama was influenced by the writings and philosophies Saul Alinsky, author of the book, “Rules for Radicals,” and later by Frank Marshall Davis, with similar philosophies.Barak Obama followed the philosophies of these ‘role models’ throughout his days as a Community Organizer for ACORN, using tactics that appeared to some as ‘shaking down’ businesses in exchange for not branding them ‘hate groups.’And apparently Obama is still following those radical rules today.Recall that Hillary Clinton did her college thesis on his writings and Barack Hussein Obama writes about him in his books. How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state.The first is the most important.1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in school.7)Religion Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor.
    This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.Now, think …Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States? Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Lenin’s original scheme for world conquest by communism, under Russian rule. Stalin described his converts as “Useful Idiots. “The Useful Idiots have destroyed every nation in which they have seized power and control. It is presently happening at an alarming rate in the U.S. “It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.”

    THIS is a MUST READ for what is happening in our COUNTRY.. LONG but take the time…Civil War How do civil wars happen?Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge. That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it’s not the first time they’ve done this. The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn’t really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There’s a pattern here.What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don’t accept the results of any election that they don’t win. It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.That’s a civil war.There’s no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.This isn’t dissent. It’s not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You can think they’re the worst thing that ever happened to the country but then you work harder to win the next election. When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don’t win, what you’re asking for is a dictatorship.Your very own dictatorship.The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power it’s inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House.So what did they do?They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time a Federal judge issues an order saying the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without the judge’s say-so, that’s civil war.Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that’s not the system that runs this country. The Democrat’s system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country.If the Democrats are in the White House, the president can do anything…and I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. His power is unlimited. He’s a dictator. But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can’t do anything. He isn’t even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor invented illegally. A Democrat in the White House has discretion’ to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn’t even have the ‘discretion’ to reverse him. That’s how the game is played. That’s how our country is run. Sad but true, but the left hasn’t yet won that particular fight.When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren’t allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a state wasn’t allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries.The Constitution has something strong to say about that. Whether it’s Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land. This is what I call a moving dictatorship.Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is a guild. Like the medieval guilds. You can’t serve if you’re not a member. If you haven’t been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren’t in the club. And Trump isn’t in the club. He brought a bunch of people with him who aren’t in a club with him. Now we’re seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down.That’s not a free country. It’s not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an ‘insurance policy’ against Trump winning the election. It’s not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. It’s not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. It’s not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn’t supposed to win did win. Have no doubt, we’re in a civil war between a conservative volunteer government and the leftist Democrat professional dictator government.

  7. First come up with a smart Democrat , then maybe I’ll look at a smart gun.

  8. Michaël is a insane idiot and needs to find a new purpose in life He will never succeed in trying to get rid of guns

  9. You remove personal protection,you leave the populis unprotected
    Then you brong in a fear factor or two mabe 3
    Then you have a measure of control
    If not you add more fear factor till the populis bends over and grabs there ankles,then you accomplished your mission.
    I call this the Commie Bastard Movement.
