New Jersey Residents: Meet the End of Your Local Gun Store - The Free Patriot

What you see up there is the world’s first “Smart Gun.” Manufactured by German company Armatix, this weapon reportedly only works when in proximity of an RFID-enabled watch, and can be locked or unlocked by use of a PIN code. Great idea – I always wanted my gun to rely on wireless communications and batteries. We all know that cell phones never lose signal or run flat!

What’s worse, New Jersey has already passed legislation that REQUIRES this technology be included in all new firearm purchases once made readily available. So, once the NJ attorney general gives this gun the thumbs up, it’s on its way to an automatic monopoly of the state’s gun market.

Say hello to your (only) little friend, New Jerseyans. Just don’t forget your wristwatch.

Wow...if your "watch" gets smashed in an altercation, you're toast. Not to mention that the cost of these futuristic firearms will be futuristic also. Once again the Socialists manage to make the poorer segment of our population the most vulnerable.

So, you can still get shot with your own gun if the perp is standing close enough!

"Hey Pops! Can I borrow your watch tonight?" "Sure Son, who ya gonna shoot?"

I can see them coming for confiscation and just turning everyone's gun off!

I expect directions on how to inactivate it to be on the net 5 minutes after these hit the market.
Of course it will be illegal, so only criminals will be able to use stolen guns. Oh, wait, only criminals use stolen guns today! Even without special technology.

A gun which can be disabled by a remotely-transmitted PIN code gives the government the power to disarm at a whim.

Beyond that, hackers will have likely have the system hacked in no time, and be able to sell the ability to turn off guns to anyone who can pony up the dough. So in all probability, not only will the bad guys know where the guns are thanks to the useful idiots in the media, they will be able to disable them.

Is it too cynical of me to suggest that this works wonderfully into the politicians' schemes? That scenario would provide lots of good footage of bravely sympathetic politicos showing their firm resolve to end violence, in the face of increasing proof that, well, it just doesn't work for someone to have their own gun. Unless, of course, they are among the elites.

Oh I am sure these politicians love this thing, and personally im insulted a european company would produce this "gun" to satisfy these gun grabbers and put an american flag on it thinking us dumb hicks clinging to our guns n religion will just eat this gun up cause it has old glory on it. I find it rather condescending...

Better read the entire article before getting too indignant...


"Gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson was awarded a $1.7 million federal grant last year to work on developing the technology and has spent $5 million on development since 1993."

Regardless, I don't see this going anywhere any time soon for most Americans... far too much opposition. It's also legislation for new handgun purchases only, once they're actually available, meaning all the handguns everybody has now, and all the ones they'll buy for the foreseeable future, will have no such "feature".

This is the equivalent of making laws for hovercraft, once they take the place of cars.

Absolutely right. No need to hop yet, the water isn't even simmering.

I assume that watch on your arm will activate the weapon whether or not the arm is still attached to your body?

I remember something similar with a ring you had to wear, fingers are easier to cut off.

basically from what I've read this little toy you have to punch in a code when you put the watch on and select an amount of time the gun is unlocked and then this weapon of mass 22lr destruction will fire. Guess you better hope you don't ever need it outside of whatever hour window you punch in...

this video they 'demo' it's use for law enforcement... I'm sure that the LAPD will be lining up to trade in their Beretta M9's for a 10 round capacity 22... and if any government bureaucrat decides to issue these I'll feel sorry for the officers who get stuck with it.

Sad thing is if this company imported this without the wizbang electronic nanny state doo dads and instead sold it as an affordable 22 plinker it's not a BAD looking gun I'd consider getting one just to play with.

It's still not legal in NY, it holds 10 rounds. Maybe they'll make a new york special edition with 7 round magazines and an Obama logo instead of the US flag.


I'll stick with my 100+ year old 1911 thank you very much lol.
