Depending upon how a 2002 law is interpreted, three years from now New Jersey gun shops might only be able to sell “smart” guns according to this opinion piece:
In 2002, former Gov. James McGreevey signed into law a bill that requires the stateâ€™s gun dealers to exclusively sell smart guns within three years after the first one hits the market. Back then, such things did not exist. These â€śsmart guns,â€ť or â€śpersonalized handgunsâ€ť as the law calls them, are defined as any handgun that is manufactured with technology that would automatically limit its use to authorized people and not easily be deactivated.
One such gun has now hit the shelves. The writer questions whether this is “the right one” to start the legal clock to ticking.
