Last week Armatix, the German technology firm behind the controversial iP1 pistol, indicated that it has entered Chapter 11-style restructuring proceedings. The announcement came on the heels of another blow to the company—its head of technical operations and veteran firearms designer Ernst Mauch quit in late April. According to Fortune, Muach lent credibility to to Armatix as an arms manufacturer due to his 30 years of experience with Heckler & Koch.

“I am a man making no compromises. I want to walk through my life with a straight and honest backbone,” Mauch told The Washington Post, giving no reasons for his abrupt departure.

Years ago Hammerli sold a high grade target pistol that had an electronic firing system. This was not a smart gun, just a trigger actuated electronic firing pin. They had so many complaints that the gun malfunctioned that they pulled the product.

The major problem was that the battery was dead.

I don't know about you, but I want my firearm to function when I pull the trigger. That is why the NJ "smart gun" law exempts police. Seems to me that the police would be the greatest beneficiaries of a smart gun, therefore, they should be the guinea pigs testing this technology.

The triumph of persuasion over force is the sign of a civilized society. — MARK SKOUSEN
