Looks like you guys want the have smart guns after all. Welcome to the world of common sense driven gun legislation guys, I'm beyond proud right now.
>Survey: Most Americans Support Smart Guns
>Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health-led research suggests.
>Bloomberg School of Public Health-led
Gotta try harder than that senpai.
I write medical research journals for a living and literally every editor you send a journal with that title to would return it in a day and laugh in your face.
Now, if you were to say "56% of self-identified political conservatives (n=3949) would personally purchase a "smart gun"" that's more acceptable.
Seriously, buzzfeed clickbait is the cancer that's killing this country
>Hey, let's put complex and sensitive electronics inside a device which regularly contains a series of small explosions and of course it has to be battery powered, but it's not like anyone's life will ever be dependent on it working when they need it to.
a sample size of 4000 people isn't particularly meaningful with a population of 350,000,000.
further, the group conducting the research has:
1. no controls
2. poorly phrased and leading questions (including loaded terms such as "gun safety" and "common sense"
3. is not peer reviewed
4. might be biased as the primary funding comes from a gun control advocate (Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is funded by grants by the VPC, an anti-gun lobbyist think tank)
lastly, the abstract of the study itself (http://ajph.aphapublications.org/doi/abs/10.2105/AJPH.2015.303041) states that In 2014, the most recent year for which final data are available, 33599 people died from gun violence; the majority of these deaths were suicides (>21000 deaths), and firearm homicides accounted for more than 11000 deaths. this is supported by FBI crime stats that same year. https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2014/crime-in-the-u.s.-2014/tables/expanded-homicide-data/expanded_homicide_data_table_8_murder_victims_by_weapon_2010-2014.xls
of those, approx 700 are justified, and ~4400 are gang or narcotics related for both victim and murderer. so if you want to include that the real number is ~10000 dead (by accident or gang related violence, otherwise the innocent victim number is about 5000.
5000 dead over the course of a year in a population of 350,000,000.
MUH 91% Support infringing your rights
MUH 'Most Americans support'
Fuck off, I dont want something that can be turned off or glitch. Kill yourself.
Anything that says 'most americans, or 91%' its a lie.
Which is actually what the article mentions at the end. There's no official opposition to their creation, but pro gun groups don't want any technology like this to be mandated.
The big thing is actually not in the sample size, but in how the sample is created. No controls (which don't really exist for surveys) and a sample size of 4000 don't mean much in comparison.
Since they distributed this survey over the internet, they likely emailed the survey to their participants and had to get their emails somehow. This can mean that they can leave out people who aren't active with them or whatever service they used.
That creates bias in the survey group, not the other stuff.
If you took a survey from the people who use 4chan, it wouldn't be representative of people who don't use the internet much for instance.
Criticism of how we name bills and distort ideas to make money and keep control.
Their ideology comes from the distrust of the Founders of direct democracy, in their mind the mostly uneducated masses from the founding have remained so but now have the ability to vote, their plan wasn't to stop democracy, it was to create a consistent 'education'.
>we polled a bunch of college kids and a few cops in a coastal town
>btw here's two more articles praising GodKing and his wonderful laws and how we know a microchip can make a criminal stop breaking the law
>make sure that gun has a flag on it, that way we can make sure those hillbillies know it's a good, patriotic thing to do
Yeah fuck them.
>Barrack Hussein Obama issues another executive order and cries on TV again
>liberals assrape gun store owners until all they sell are "Smart Guns"
>somehow, this gets rid of the 300 gazillion evil "dumb guns" already in circulation
Fucking fantastic. I can't wait for common sense gun laws to make this nation great again. Barrack Mohammed Hussein Osama, please gas all the racists/capitalists and all the people who bought smartguns too. Praise the spaghetti monster.
Even the best surveys, random auto-dialed phone surveys, are skewed because they can only interview people who are willing to sit through a survey. I've done a few in my life, and they are pointless, tedious bullshit that takes way too much god damned time to complete. I assume most of the people filling out any survey are complete weirdos.
Some crime center on the cost, NY or Cali, will force their police to use them, after yet another cop loses their gun to a criminal.
The 'idea' (not entirely comfortable calling this malformed abortion of a misfired human synapse an idea) is to have the firing pin print tiny numbers onto the primer. With the implication that one that it won't wear off on it's own pretty fast and that literally everyone won't be doing that on purpose with a but of sandpaper or file or, I dunno, buy the same fucking part that's not printed from the internet because it is not illegal to buy a spare firing pin.
Well we don't know the wording of the question so the summary is pretty useless
>Fifty-nine percent of all respondents said they would be willing to consider a childproof gun if they were to purchase a new weapon. More than twice as many current gun owners said they would be willing to purchase a childproof gun than would be unwilling.
Sounds like they were asked if they would be a hypothetical product and weren't explained how these things work. If a gun could magically detect who was shooting it then yes I would buy it. That's not what current tech does, the current technology sucks massive ass - it's usually reliant on some RFID tag that you'd have to have on both hands and is susceptible to jamming, cloning, and battery failure. But nobody knows this because few people know how RFID even works, and fewer people than that know how decent crypto works.
tl;dr ask vague questions and you can get anybody to agree with you

It'd be pretty cool if you could have it automatically keep track of shots fired, times disassembled for cleaning, dindus dun, maybe accuracy on timed shots and post it onto a national scoreboard.
