DUMB: Obama makes move on ‘smart guns’

President Obama on Friday announced new efforts to speed up development of so-called smart guns, the latest step in his final-year push to reduce gun violence.

Smart guns are weapons that use technological safety features designed to prevent accidental shootings, such as fingerprint activation that allows only designated users to fire the gun.

The Obama administration is developing guidelines so that gun manufacturers understand how they can meet law enforcement agencies’ needs for smart guns.

The Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security are expected to complete the guidance in October, according to a new interagency report published Friday.

The Justice Department is also offering certain federal grants to state and local governments that purchase smart guns.

This is the Administration that couldn’t even roll out a functioning website on time, despite years of effort and a budget unlike any other in the web-development business.
