"Smart" Guns - Dangerously Dumb

Recently on NerdAbsurd we discussed "Smart" guns, in which I took up the task of refute an article on written by Farhad Manjoo. When Virginia first sent me a link to the article asking my opinion, I knew I would have more than a few things to say after reading just the title: "We Have the Technology To Make Safer Guns: Too bad gunmakers don’t care." For now, I'm going to overlook the idea that there is some grand conspiracy of firearms manufacturers and tackle the idea of "smart" guns themselves.
