Smart Guns: Betting Your Life on Your iPhone?
Smart Guns: Betting Your Life on Your iPhone?

The NRA Firearms Sourcebook defines a firearm as “An assembly of a barrel and action from which a projectile is propelled through a deflagration of propellant.” I love that word: deflagration. Webster’s defines to deflagrate as “to burn down” or “to burn rapidly with intense heat and sparks being given off.” Every time a cartridge gun is fired there is a detonation of a primer followed by the conversion of solid propellant (gunpowder) to an expanding gas that drives a projectile (or projectiles in the case of shotshells) down the barrel. The consequences of the chemical reaction of turning solid propellant into gas results are heat and recoil. It is hot and violent. Deflegration is not a place where I want my iPhone. I have enough trouble getting mine to read a thumbprint after eating a hamburger, let alone the stressful circumstances that might occur when I would actually need to use a firearm defensively.
