Five Low-Tech Ways Manufacturers Can Make Guns Safer

There are, however, several lower-tech ways to make guns safer, methods that have been available for decades. These options do not go so far as to render a firearm inoperable if it falls into the wrong hands, but they have proven effective at helping prevent accidental discharges, which claimed 586 lives in 2014, the most recent year for which Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data is available.

Though the safety features listed below are well known, they have not been universally adopted by gun makers. That’s because no federal agency oversees how firearms are designed or built, even though federal safety regulations are standard for other consumer products like cars or over-the-counter medication bottles.

This guy knows a little bit about guns, but to suggest all these features on every pistol is asinine.

You can't just add features to a gun if it was not included in the design from the beginning.

This guy is obvious aiming to increasing the cost of firearms as a disservice to the law abiding public. The mandated safety features on automobiles probably adds $3 to $4000 to each vehicle. And some of them are not as safe as they are advertised. Did you ever try and stop a car with anti-lock brakes on snow or ice? It doubles the stopping distance.

Most so called accidental discharges are not accidents at all but pure negligence. I for one do not need these so called safety features to be safe.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm . . . is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege. [Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878)]
