"Smart" Guns?

This morning, I saw a news report on so-called "smart" pistols. It seems NJ and CA (what a surprise?) are currently considering legislation requiring this "new" technology on all sales of new pistols.

Of course, the reporter, who obviously knows nothing about guns (another surprise!), didn't even know enough to ask relevant questions. She just drooled over the sample gun and handed the microphone over to a local retailer who recited several lines from the manufacturer's own promotional material. They call this sewage "journalism!"

Did Hillary Miss a Chance to Weaken Boko Haram?
By Harold Hutchison

Did Hillary Clinton fail to take an opportunity to weaken the Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram in 2011? That is the question some are asking in the wake of two high-profile attacks, one of which involved the terrorist group kidnapping hundreds of girls from their school.
