Gun “safety” as gun control

US Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) says he wants the $580 million Army contract to replace its handguns, to include two “safety” provisions — the winning bidder must develop “smart gun” technology, and must cut off business ties with the “1 percent” of gun dealers that sell guns to criminals.

I have two words for potential bidders: “Smith and Wesson.”

The Los Angeles City Council has unanimously passed a new “safe storage” law, the violation of which is a misdemeanor offense. Under the law, handguns must be locked up or disabled with a trigger lock unless they are “within close enough proximity and control” that the owner or another legally authorized user can readily retrieve and use them “as if carried on the person,” which probably violates the Supreme Court’s Heller and McDonald decisions.
