if the battery dies, you could die.

Just my 2 cents, if the battery dies, you could die.

http://girlsjustwannahaveguns.com/2014/02/iphone-guns-new-technology-births-smart-gun-destined-transform-industry-video/

The watch’s primary purpose is not to provide accurate time, though it does. The watch makes the gun think. Electronic chips inside the gun and the watch communicate with each other. If the watch is within close reach of the gun, a light on the grip turns green. Fire away. No watch means no green light. The gun becomes a paperweight.

Haven't read the article, but I sure don't like it so far!

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.

No thank you, I don't trust technology all that much. Dead battery or unit has trouble sending or receiving code and you will be the one in trouble when this happens at the worst time.

Proximity sensor .... could have to shoot with the other hand while dragging your partner out of harms way.  Saw that on TV. 

Darn, my watch is on my dresser at home, forgot to put it on this morning.

Fingerprint recognition, darn Band Aid I  Put on the cut on my finger a while ago.

KISS  I don't even want a laser.   :-\

I put on an EOtech XPS . The iron sights still co-witness even if the battery were to go. And I put a magpul ACS stock which holds 6 123 batteries. The standard front iron post I replaced with a mep night sight.

"At the moment he placed the gun in its holster, it appears that a software hacker discovered a device on a wi-fi network that was seemingly unusual to the hacker. The hacker (yet to be identified) somehow triggered the firing mechanism on the owner's pistol through software manipulation and the gun discharged several times. The owner of the .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun is recovering from several gunshot wounds as, apparently, the hacker unknowingly (it is thought) fired the gun several times. More news at eleven."
The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

Depending on the season, the gun could "fall back" or "spring forward" with the time change. In short, the gun will fire either early or late depending on the season. For those states that do not recognize the time change, the gun will fire normally.

If this is the case, I advise everyone who lives in Indiana to be careful, especially the southern counties, where the time can vary by county!   (the southern counties each decided which timezone they wanted in respects to the DST).
