Deutch Smart Gun Rant Confirms Intent is Control Not Safety

No “gun law” will ever be “enough” for those who would require our surrender and obedience.

“Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) said the development of smart guns should be part of the gun-control conversation, arguing that a gun owner should not be able to fire a gun without some sort of verification like a thumbprint that’s needed to unlock a smartphone,” PJ Media reports. “Deutch also said that there are efforts underway to require gun manufacturers to incorporate smart technology in firearms but that the NRA is standing in the way.”

As they should.

No one warning against development of such firearms is against the technology per se. In a free society, people ought to be able to market and purchase what they want, even if the whole concept is meant to interfere with the function of the gun. Perhaps prospective customers have never pointed a remote control at a garage door or television set and had nothing happen.

But it’s not about safety or reliability anyway, and Deutch knows that, even if the useful idiots he’s swindling out of their rights do not. The people pushing for such mandates are only interested in forcing diktats on those they would disenfranchise, and on restricting their choices.

Deutch knows there are hundreds of millions of guns already in circulation in this country. He knows that what can be put on can be taken off. He knows that criminals will never obey any “gun control” laws, and that guns are even easier to smuggle in than all those illegal aliens he’s busy paving a “pathway to citizenship” for.

All this is known to those imposing anticipated restrictions like the one enacted in New Jersey, requiring that all handguns in the state incorporate the technology once it becomes available for sale.

There’s another technology danger not too many are talking about (except for a handful of us who have been raising a flag for years). “With a laptop and customised software called CarShark, the researchers disabled the brakes of a regular family car and switched its engine off – while it was moving,” a News.com.au report revealed in 2010. And yes, of course that was being looked into as a requirement, using ending car chases and the ubiquitous “safety” as “justification” for the state exercising total and final control.

Yardarm Technologies has demonstrated a product designed to allow gun owners to remotely track and disable their firearm. Who thinks for a minute that Deutch and his fellow travelers wouldn’t also mandate a shutoff “key” for police?

In a strange way we ought to be grateful to him, for not having the self-control to keep his goal hidden and for revealing yet again that the motives behind such subversion have nothing to do with safety and everything to do with control.

  1. It sounds like a broken record. I have responded and commented on this issue so many times that it has become a waste of time and it only serves to irritate me to a point of indigestion. I have contended from the beginning that their relentless attack on the Constitution, unlimited financial support from foreign and domestic Socialist Globalist adversary’s and adding anti American Democratic elected people daily, has them well on their way to what I truly believe will be the final solution….Civil War or Revolution. There are a couple hundred million , plus or minus, that will simply not accept their terms. I am an American Korean War Veteran and my Oath remains valid and active. I stand ready to respond as required.

  2. How long will the TRUE American, Constitution loving , Freedom loving , LEGAL CITIZEN of these UNITED STATES continue to tolerate these type of political scumbags. I see and hear everyday about the Civil War that the Left is wanting to start, I for one say let’s givem what they want and ” REFRESH THE TREE “. I grow tired of this foolishness!!!

  3. All my GUNs are already “Smart” guns. I have told them not to discharge when in the safe and to only discharge when I pull the trigger….

    I know I am preaching to our choir here….

    Gun Control
    Gun control is a red herring meant to lead us to a false conclusion that we will be safer without guns. Guns are inanimate objects unable to operate independently. They REQUIRE a go-between, a human, to place this inanimate object into action. I absolutely and positively assure you that no bullet will leave a barrel without the necessary go-between to pull the trigger. We must consider what control is necessary to reduce violent EVIL people crimes with the use of firearms! Some form of people control is necessary. We as a people must determine what that control is going to be.
    Gun Control, the mantra of the left, is totally MISS LEADING! The left wants to control me, the owner. Gun Control is proper grip, sight alignment, breathing and trigger squeeze. Show me where any written law can control a gun! Indeed the FedGov really just wants to enact Gun Owner Control!!

    Wake up America.

    When will all of the gun control FOOLs realize that WITH guns, we are patriot citizens, WITHOUT, we are subjects in a police state. King George tried this ploy in 1775; it failed and The American Revolution resulted. (Hitler succeeded). Our founders deliberated for several months back in 1787 and delivered The Constitution of the United States. This document states clearly and inarguably in the Second Amendment that “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to [keep and bear] Arms, shall not be infringed.” What about this statement from our founding documents do the FOOLs not get?
    There is absolutely no question that foolish idiots and the useful idiots who support them misuse their God-given and constitutionally privileged right to keep and bear arms and must be identified, as well as prevented from EVER obtaining any firearm or explosive device. Removing the access to any weapons, or ammunition or magazine of any capacity of NORMAL law abiding citizens is no answer.
    Guns in the hands of a knowledgeable and capable citizenry are a viable deterrent to crime and tyranny. Criminal’s who place little or no value upon life are unstoppable if he chooses to kill or simply go on a shooting rampage. A law restricting the sociopath, bullies or alcohol/drug dependent citizenry from access to weapons has a greater chance of support by the average citizenry.
    EVIL Sick humans are the perpetrators of horrendous acts upon the most vulnerable, the very young, the elderly and the handicapped. Look to the perpetrators and their actions, not to the inanimate objects unable to operate independently for solutions and remedial action.

  4. Ironic how the PC socialist HYPOCRITES cry about campus shootings and celebrate abortions.

    BTW: Most of this “smart stuff” is really quite STUPID.

    Socialists are PARASITES.

  5. Beware of the Useful Idiots

    This post may not have anything to do with this article but is being included to inform people of how they have been used by the Government Administration of Barack Obama supported by Hillary Clinton and company.
    I think all people should read the item below and in particular if you are an Obama or Clinton supporter.
    After you read this ask yourself if you are a Useful Idiot and have been manipulated by these people.
    If the answer is YES its not too late to change.
    Beware the Useful Idiots
    submitted by Garret Geer
    Recall that Hillary did her college thesis on his writings and Obama writes about him in his books.Saul Alinsky died about 43 years ago, but his writings influenced those in political control of our nation today.
    Died: June 12, 1972, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA
    Education: University of Chicago
    Spouse: Irene Alinsky
    Books: Rules for Radicals, Reveille for Radicals
    Anyone out there think that this stuff still isn’t being promoted today by the Democrats and Left in the U.S.?
    All eight rules are still in play by the Left..
    How to create a socialist state by Saul Alinsky:
    There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.
    1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.
    2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible; poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
    3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
    4) Gun Control– Remove the ability to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state.
    5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
    6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.
    7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the government and schools.
    8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent, and it will be easier to take (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.
    Does any of this sound like what was happening to the United States?
    Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Lenin’s original scheme for world conquest by communism, under Russian rule. Stalin described his converts as “Useful Idiots.”
    The Useful Idiots have destroyed every nation in which they have seized power and control. It was and still is happening in the U.S.
    “It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.”

  6. I have expended all the oxygen I can afford trying to live up to the Oath I took in 1957 to protect and defend-So I’ll go to the Heart of the PROBLEM by quoting D.H. Lawrence “Men fight for Liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their Children, brought up Easy, let it slip away again; poor Fools. And their Grand Children are once more Slaves”.
    This my Friends is where America stands in 2018, and talking is not going to work since the media, even Fox, seems to have fallen prey to “being inclusive” and the parsing of language to attempt to sound intelligent. Paul Harvey once remarked that Self Importance has ruined more good journalist that bad liquor. When This medium is given over to Government CONTROL , Their UTOPIA will become reality.
