'Smart Rifle' Could Shake Up Gun Control Debate - Businessweek

So - I wonder if it could be ported to .68 cal paintball physics and used on the field?

There have been home made computer controlled "turrets" in paintball for several years now. I have always wanted to build one, but hadn't had the capitol.

Trijcon and Barret already have something similar.

Now imagine if you could print this gun out of plastic on any 3d printer and make the electronics out of any smart phone with custom software....anarchy I tell you.

Pff. I'll be impressed when you come back with wings and an engine strapped to it, and designed to fly half way across a good sized country and back.

This is a really bad time for this to come out, methinks... Having "rifle" and "facebook" and "young shooters" all in one article is really gonna hurt gun rights when some senator starts quoting it. Couldn't they have gone away for 6 months? "Scary new digital gun" sounds awful scary to people who are ignorant when it comes to firearms, and those are the people who generally make the laws.

That said, why do gungrabbers always want to do away with guns that are more controllable and comfortable, and therefore to the common shooter, more accurate? Here, you can have this musketoon, a .38 with a 1/2" barrel, a lever action 45-70 with a massive drop in the stock, and a 30-06 semi with a plastic straw for a barrel, and then have a broad-side-of-a-barn shooting contest and accidentally hit the guy standing behind you...

Of course it's "unsafe" to have a rifle with a pistol grip, straight stock, tuneable muzzle brake, you know someone might accidentally hit what they're shooting at.

You know, Now we have "smart" phones, "smart" cars and now "smart" guns. All I want to know is when will the "smart" people be released to the public? Do you realize half the people out there are below average?

My thing is... Doesn't this pretty much take all the fun out of shooting? I mean, to me the only reason for going to the range is to improve my skill set, what's the point of even bothering if the gun's literally going to be doing the shooting for you and all you have to do is sweep the crosshair over the target?
