Well, seeing as how my fingerprints won't work on our time clock at work, on a biometric safe I was given, or on any other electronic gadget I've tried, I say NO thanks.

Let's pretend that the lock can't be defeated for a sec. Let's also pretend that all existing firearms disappeared.

I can see requiring inserting a Yubico in the end every month or so, a light could show that you need to do it in a week or something. Any stolen gun bricked within that time period.

It's interesting to think through the problem. It wouldn't help the mass murders even a bit, but might change gun ownership by teens in urban areas.

I would add that Joe Biden is not some novice here. He's an expert when it comes to guns. He's a longtime shotgun aficionado who owns a 'Beretta' and trained his wife how to shoot for home protection.

Well, maybe Joe will chime in here on CD, and explain to all of us how a firearm can take a DNA sample, then process it for a match, and do all of this instantly.

^ Maybe that's how he's going to cure cancer...but only if he's elected, of course.

And he proposed firing a warning shot which is illegal most of the time. He is an idiot.

All gun laws are infringements.

And the solution to gun violence is to abolish the military and completely disarm cops and the entire U.S government.

and there in lies the problem with the so called "smart guns". if you and a friend of yours are walking down the street, and find yourselves needing to defend yourselves with a firearm, and only one of you is armed with the "smart gun", and that person is incapacitated, then the other is now dead meat since they cant use the "smart gun".


thank you but please keep your "smart guns" to yourselves, i will stick with my old reliable and usable dumb guns.

I only have 1 question. How many of the firearms used by his secret service detail use the technology that Uncle Joe wants to impose upon everyone else? Yeah That's what I thought. Typical.

I'm thinking we need the Biden DNA-o-maticģ for car keys.

Just smudge yer grubby little fingers on the steering wheel, and your government-issued Trabant coughs to life.

This thread did make me think though, does someone make a Yubico lock of any kind?
