Re: Smart Gun Technology - Opinions
While many in this country have stopped subscribing to the Constitution, I for one still do and intend to do so for a while more. The Constitution is a set of direct orders to all branches and agencies of Government from the People of the United States. Those orders are not open for discussion or reinterpretation; they are to be followed, without question. If and when the Government wants to request modification or change, there is a process defined within. The proposed change is presented to the people as an amendment. The people respond by voting on whether to ratify or not. That's the only way anything in the Constitution can be changed - legitimately.
What does this have to do with the "smart gun technology?" "Smart gun technology," in any form, is an attempt to go around the Constitution without an amendment. PERIOD
