The First Smart Gun Is Finally Coming to Market. Will Anyone Buy It?

Story by Zusha Elinson • Jul 27


Sasha Wiesen sleeps with a .40-caliber handgun in a safe by his bed. The commercial real-estate broker from Florida recently preordered a new type of firearm he hopes will make the safe unnecessary.

The new weapon is the Colorado startup Biofire’s 9mm Smart Gun, which can only be fired if it recognizes an authorized user with a fingerprint reader on the grip or a facial recognition camera on the back.

Guns that use technology to ensure that they can only be fired by their owners, called smart guns, have been developed and debated since the 1990s. The Biofire Smart Gun will be the first widely available for sale if it ships in December as planned.

Proponents tout smart guns as a way to reduce accidental shootings and firearm thefts. Gun-rights supporters have been wary, in part over concern that governments could outlaw sales of weapons that don’t have smart-gun technology.

The Secret History of Gun Rights: How Lawmakers Armed the N.R.A.
They served in Congress and on the N.R.A.’s board at the same time. Over decades, a small group of legislators led by a prominent Democrat pushed the gun lobby to help transform the law, the courts and views on the Second Amendment.

I would think that police officers would be at the forefront of "please don't make it easy for the perps to have guns" movement. But it seems they want every stop to have the potential that they're shot at. Go figure.

Well you all have lost the moral high ground on background checks with Hunter's case.

Background checks are clearly racist and elitist.  They are for thee, not me ...

I actually did a paper on that for one of my classes.

We need to track contact lens prescriptions to make sure that no one slips through the cracks.  Especially the ones that use colored lenses to change their eye color.
