Will New Jersey Law Sink Armatix’s Second Smart Gun As It Did The First?

posted on October 20, 2016

On Wednesday, Armatix, the German manufacturer of the failed .22-cal iP1 “smart gun,” announced plans to introduce a new 9 mm version in 2017. In an interview with Computerworld.com, CEO Wolfgang Tweraser touted the features of the $1365 iP9, which will utilize a fingerprint sensor instead of RFID technology. 

However, Tweraser failed to address the fact that the New Jersey legislation that guaranteed the failure of the troubled iP1 is still in effect. N.J. state law requires all new guns sold to be “smart guns,” starting three years from the date of sale of any such gun in the country. N.J. Sen. Loretta Weinberg’s law has effectively prevented the development of such technology for 14 years. 

Tweraser dismissed the iP1 gun review published by America's 1st Freedom, which found multiple problems with the gun and the technology. We would love to give Armatix a second chance once the iP9 is released; Mr. Tweraser, when can we schedule a demonstration?
