Gun Seller Backs Down on Smart Gun Plans After Threats

Saturday, 03 May 2014 01:14 PM

A Maryland gun dealer has changed his mind about selling the nation's first smart gun, saying he, his business, and even his dog were threatened by gun rights supporters who say the technology curtails their Second Amendment rights.

Andy Raymond, who co-owns Engage Armament in Rockville, said he wanted to sell the Armatix iP1 smart gun because he's opposed to banning gun sales, and believed the weapons could entice buyers concerned about safety, reports The Washington Post, which also posted an excerpt from his Facebook video about the decision.

I doubt anyone threatened anything more than a boycott.

Of course they'll report an over-reaction. Gotta keep the "dangerous progunners" meme alive. He claims somebody threatened to burn his store down. That could have been anybody, maybe even - gasp - an anti gunner acting as agent provocateur.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Every single time you hear about these alleged "death threats" there's never a shred of proof, and no one is ever prosecuted for making those threats. Those stories are almost as credible as the one about someone yelling "nigger" on the steps of the capital building after the Obamacare vote.

I was wondering about that. Dont the "authorities" take death threats very seriously? Wouldnt, in the potentially explosive climate we are living in prompted a serious investigation into us gun owning "terrorists" to catch the menace to society that made the alleged threat? I think this man may be embellishing his story a bit. Just a hunch on my part. Streaker you get a time out for even typing the "N" word you are not black and therefor racist, insensitive and every other thing you could be called for having such nerve.
