BRET BAIER (HOST): The Obama administration made a promise to curb gun violence and today issued a progress report. That report includes a technology that some in law enforcement believe could be flat-out dangerous.Correspondent Kevin Corke reports on the new technology that's already taking fire. 


KEVIN CORKE: [S]ome experts believe so-called smart guns make potential users like law enforcement less safe. Because they run on batteries and the software could be prone to hacking. 


CORKE: Meanwhile, very strong reaction tonight, Bret, from the National Rifle Association. Spokesperson Jennifer Baker telling Fox News President Obama's obsession with gun control knows no boundaries. She goes on to say at a time when we're battling terrorists both abroad and at home, this administration would rather have the military focus its efforts on the president's gun control agenda.
