Not to mention that it can't be all that hard to run a wire from the
trigger to the ignitor...and then it's about as dumb as they come. Also,
using a cheap contact or proximity sensor, I can see how such an
electrically fired gun could be made to fire full automatic - or select
fire - at the cost of a little hacking and a few parts.

Maybe I am starting to like this "smart gun" idea...
