In the latest televised Sunday night address, the US president Obama wants to urge high-tech to do something against terrorist:
And that’s why I will urge high-tech and law enforcement leaders to make it harder for terrorists to use technology to escape from justice.
See here for the full text. Why stop here? Why not spread engage more industries in working against terrorism? Let’s see, maybe we should require the automobile industry to make sure that bad people can not drive a car? Oh, wait, bad people should not be allowed to buy a pressure cooker? Hmm, what was it that is used in most recent terror attacks? Well, I guess there were more terror attacks using guns than there were attacks that relied on encrypted communication to terrorize the US, French and other governments into finally getting a better control of their own people.
So the most effective way of reducing the terror (and more than 1 accidently shot American per day) would be to require that all guns sold may only be fired by the good guys and may only hit the bad ones! That way the stupid idea of more guns will save us from guns might even be true…
Can you guys hear the NRA shouting “But it is impossible make a gun like that!”? Well, true.
