    No need for gun confiscation...they will just turn them off. Of course that will raise the price of firearms to 10 grand each.

    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    Hand it to a robot. Then grab your "ordinary" rifle.

    So, if a comrade in arms falls, and you find yourself in need of his gun, forget it. It won't work. I'm sure soldiers will love that.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Meh, they've been talking about this for decades. It'll never happen due to the expenses involved and even if it did, nobody would buy them so they would quickly be dropped.

    Worst case scenario, they give Gunsmiths a lot of business as folks come in droves asking for them to be disabled.

    In the first photo, it looks like there is hot glue holding the magazine in place.

    No need to buy one......when you'll prob'ly be able to just pick one up off of a dead guy somewhere.

    As I see it, there would be two tiers of weapons: One manufactured for the military and one for the civilian markets. The civilian weapons would have a "back door" built in to permit the weapons to be disabled. There would be mandatory trade-ins required.

    Sound pretty tin-foil hatted. And I'm not someone who subscribes to conspiracy theories. But after the government wanted Apple and other tech companies to build "back doors" to let them bypass device encryption, this sounds pretty reasonable.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    It does indeed sound reasonable, but you should also realize there are plenty of folk in the government that would want those same "features" built into the military versions as well.
