    Here we go again, coalition is pushing for ... smart guns

    Here we go again. The antigunners coalition CONECT (Congregations Organized for a New Connecticut), organized a press conference in Bridgeport, CT, today to promote their agenda. Their suggestions: gun manufacturers should tighten their distribution systems and should invest in smart gun technologies.

    When was the last time we heard about these things again?

    Time for a letter to the editor of my local bird cage liner.

    Questions:

    1. There are police departments (or chiefs) backing this. Are they proposing to issue "smart" guns to their officers -- or only to the rest of us?
    2. If the manufacturers decline to fall for this, will police departments stop buying new guns?
    3. I believe cars kill a lot more people daily and annually than guns. Why aren't they pushing for "smart" cars, and breathalyzer interlocks on ALL cars from the factory?


    What have I forgotten?

    Baseball bats kill more people than guns, too, so here's an idea (I scare myself sometimes): how about introducing a register of professional and college baseball players, give them a special ring, registered to them personally, and modify baseball bats with a battery and a G-force accelerometer, so if someone swings a bat without wearing the ring, they get an electric shock..?
    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.
