Okay, first off, I wish to establish that I in *no*
way wish to become involved in the gun discussions.
However, I was reading the paper yesterday evening and

discovered something which I thought might be of
interest to the people who *have* been discussing gun
stuff. So, I thought I'd share this clipping with you:

_Firm unveils 'smart gun'_
   SYDNEY, Australia -- An Aus-
tralian company unveiled a newly
developed "smart gun" Tuesday
that it claims won't fire if it
falls into the wrong hands.
   To fire the gun the shooter
has to be wearing a special ring
concealing a transponder, which
communicates a code to the pis-
tol. "If it's lost or stolen it
can't be used," inventor Mike
O'Dwyer said.

There ya go. Probably everyone who's interested has
already heard about it anyway, but the times when I
can come up with something semi-worthwhile to
contribute are pretty rare, so I thought I'd try. :)
