JPFO Alert: Brady Campaign "Smart Gun" Lawsuit Illustrates Their Yearning to Mandate Them

Today's JPFO Alert looks at just how ineffably eager the Brady Campaign is to outlaw self-defense.

But never mind that. Consider instead that the Brady Campaign wants for the only handgun available to New Jersey residents to be chambered in the woefully inadequate for self-defense .22 caliber. They want to force them to spend $1400 on the gun, and another $400 on the required "magic wristwatch"-- a poll tax on self-defense. They want New Jersey residents' lives to depend on keeping fresh batteries in the watch and gun, be certain to keep the watch within 10 inches of the gun (tricky, if one has to switch hands, while using the off-hand to fend off an attacker) -- and to enter a PIN number before the gun can be fired. And with all that, the gun can still be expected to fail once over the course of firing a ten-round magazine.

And as always, if you haven't seen all the great JPFO Alerts written by David, Nicki, and Claire, you owe it to yourself to fix that.

Type in a PIN to fire the weapon? I think most of us, while using an ATM card or a debit card at one time or another, have had to press the "clear" key and start over because we accidentally typed the wrong key or accidentally typed the same key twice. Imagine trying to do that while in fear for your life, and while trying to fend off or dodge an assailant, and while trying to call 911, all at the same time.

If the Brady Campaign thinks a handgun with a 90% reliability rate is acceptable for self-defense, ask them if they are willing to drive a car with brakes that fail to work 10% of the time.

For that matter, the "10% failure rate" doesn't even necessarily mean that you can shoot your attacker nine times before the 1P1 pistol jams or misfires. If a stoppage occurs while you are trying to fire the first shot, you probably won't get a chance to try again.
