See the link in post #1. The technology is there. It's from a right wing source, no less.

It reads your DNA the second you put your finger on the trigger. If there's no match, the weapon will not fire.

So, does Biden's security detail use the technology? No? Then it's more do as I say and not as I do rhetoric from creepy Joe.

I just read the story you linked to, there was nothing about a DNA firearm, other than the claim by Biden.

I have never heard of a "DNA" firearm, and I highly doubt that such technology exists.

BS.

You can make a better argument for a physical key that unlocks a guns for a period of time, assuming that theft is the big issue here.

None of this has a thing to do with white guy mass shooters though, it would be a rarity to find one with a stolen gun.

I would not trust Biden with a BB gun.

500 million firearms out already. This is hilarious. Hilarious. It would take about a thousand years to phase out old stock. My phone has never locked up. When you need your gun it has "updates" and auto reboots just like phones and computers today. Can't hack them. Hilarious.

But now, in contrast to the others, he's moving ahead with a fresh approach: mandate that all guns be "smart" guns.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...out-dna-match/

The smart gun is a gun that can be fired only by its owner. The gun WILL NOT shoot unless a fingerprint and DNA match is confirmed. Biden notes that we already have the technology.



This would virtually eliminate black-on-black gang violence, which conservatives so often bemoan. Most gang weapons are either stolen, or obtained via 'straw' purchase. The gang members would no longer be able to shoot such guns under Biden's plan. A key would be to require that police agencies, who have often been resistant in the past, to adopt the smart guns. Many cops are killed with their own guns; this would put an end to that. What do you think?
Be my guest and buy a gun that needs batteries to work. The rest of us will pass.

There's a sensor on the trigger, eh?
