This is basically my thoughts on the subject and that is a kill switch circumvents the Second Amendment.

I'm not advocating anything, but who is to say who gets their "guns shut off" and who don't? And what about human error and accidental shut offs? True story, I've been without a phone and internet for over 2 weeks because of human error. It took the agent 10 minutes to accidentally shut it off and 2 weeks later I still haven't been reconnected. Our cellular service is unreliable and not sure if I could call the police even if our lives depended on it. Thankfully I have my trusty 1911 but could you imagine if it had been some smart gun that was accidentally shut off?? I mean ya, I carry a pocket knife like most guys but that wouldn't do us any good if a home intruder was carrying your average non computerized firearm.

You're not alone, along with over 80 million gun owners.

I agree, and it should be up to us if we want any kind of electronics on our guns, not the government. In my opinion, electronics only belong on computers and my HD-TV, not my guns.

My guns are smart enough, they don't need to be smarter.. in fact the IQ of my Colt 1911 is much higher than the combined IQ of all politicians in Washington who want to push this "smart gun" technology.

great, then I expect every LEO federal, state and local to have this 1st and give the remote kill switches to every law abiding citizen 1st.

I shall never ever get such a product, and never install one no matter what the government says.

And this is why we just did not trust this technology to begin with.
The oldest gun that I have is a 1898 refurbished Mauser in the 22-250 Rem. caliber. It shoots groups that are about 1/4" at 100 yards and it'll continue to work long after I'm gone. Can you say the same thing about a 10-year-old computer with similar processor chips they want to put on guns?
