9. Yes, facts are so tedious, aren't they?

I have a $35000 pickup truck that won't start without a battery. The difference between my truck and the Mossberg is that the Mossberg gives audible and visual warning when the battery reaches 30% charge. That's about 1000 rounds.

Your car battery recharges itself continually. The Mossberg? Nope.

Your truck battery gives you feedback in terms of slow starting. You probably drive it every day, or at least several times a week, and would be aware of the battery's condition. Will you be around to hear and see your smart gun's battery warning before it fades away to nothing? A shotgun that is kept for home defense might be used rarely (for practice) if at all. A "dumb gun" could sit for years and still be in perfect working order. A "smart gun"? Nope.

Leaving the ring is tantamount to leaving the gun unloaded.

Not at all. See previous point: The gun itself might be left loaded and secured for years. It should still be there and functional if and when it is needed. How many times will that ring go on and off the user's finger in that span of time? How many chances to lose or forget it will there be?

When are you going to think for yourself and stop regurgitating the propaganda the gun makers feed you?

When are you going to make some cogent arguments? Do you think the gun makers care? They would jump at the chance to sell gun owners some mandated high-tech doo-dad. What exactly is is that you think Mossberg sells? Lawn mowers?
