Other than the minor detail of the gun not working, this solution is awesome.“Good intentions don’t necessarily make good inventions,” said Stephen Sanetti, president of the National Shooting Sports Foundation. They’re the main trade group for companies that make and sell guns.
Sanetti expressed concern about the reliability of any firearm that depends on battery power.
“The firearm has to work. And a firearm is not the same as a cell phone,” Sanetti said. “The consequences of a cell phone not working are inconvenience. The consequences of a firearm not working could be someone’s life.”Kloepfer said his gun is “relatively reliable.”“I know, like, when I’m using it, when I’m testing it, it functions almost every single time,” Kloepfer said.
But not every time, as we saw firsthand when Kloepfer’s prototype -- a modified Glock .22 – failed.
The only thing new about this is that CBS News is reporting both sides of the debate. But Mr. Kloepfer scored a sweet $50,000 to dust this idiocy off.
