If regulators weren't all geriatric, power hungry morons who don't understand technology, we'd have sensible and cautious legislation around this shit already. But no, corporations get to run at full speed into technologies that will fundamentally reshape society will no knowledge of how and no responsibility for the consequences but plenty of opportunity to make money before the damage starts showing.

Fuck I hate this world sometimes.

In 2002 New Jersey passed a law that said that once a any smart gun was available for sale, you could only buy smart guns in the state. And that’s probably the biggest reason we don’t have any guns with electronic safety features today.
