  •  Neutered Laws (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Since about 2002, New Jersey has had a law on the books that biometric locks are required once they become widely available. Note that last clause which effectively neuters the law because with no demand they'll never get produced. (Biometric lock = hand-print safety on the gun. Wrong hand-print, it won't fire.)

    Insurance companies offering lower rates to biometric-locked guns --> demand for them --> they get produced --> NJ law becomes active.

    So getting insurance companies involved in opposition to the gun lobby could easily activate this law.

    I'd bet there are tons of neutered laws in many states that would have a similar activation; poison clauses are a common stratagem for the gun lobby.
