Most of our best efforts at firearm security are passive.
Even legally speaking.
Every state and many municipalities have a published version of “safe storage” requirements. These can be as broadly stated as “the firearm must be stored in a manner to prevent unauthorized access” or as specific as a firearm being stored unloaded, disassembled, locked in a safe, ammunition separately locked, and so on.
Gun safes, cabinets, trigger locks, or a dead bolted door all have a shared characteristic though, they are passive security measures.
Simtek changes that.
