I think this has a chance to help us New Yorkers , for those who have been denied due to something a family member has done. Of course the tech would need to be perfected.

Fingerprint sensors are highly unreliable on safes, what makes anyone think that it will work better on a dusty, lint covered gun? VERY bad idea and I doubt it will even come to light how bad the idea is after a legally armed citizen gets killed because it fails!! I guarantee there is not a Police Officer in this country that would accept carrying one of these (brass sitting behind a desk excluded)

Hey I'm all for the police getting a gun that if it is wrestle away from them it cant be used against them, so after it has been perfected for law and military use I may just buy one for the house till that day comes you can keep it.

You and all the rest of will be made to deal with any rule and regulation they want to impose on your rights. With that said, this technology has the potential to invalidate legislation based on " guns getting in the wrong hands" , or being denied due to actions of those in your household. I can careless if you prefer smart people , dumb guns , or padding your likes, fears and dislikes. Please think out of the box of comfort and look to gain ground on carry rights in this sinkhole of liberals. Please do not mention the dangers of none-reliability, of course the technology would need to be perfected beyond what it is now.

Yes, I was one of those people that needed to wait 4 years before my license was awarded , not for anything I did wrong but for an action my wife took which they used as their rationale for denial.

Well, look at the dude who got arrested for reckless engagement in the long beach movie theater, that negligence validates the need for carry restrictions for all of us. With this technology the two kids in the movie theater who found the gun would have been safe. Additionally , if they lift one restriction its sets a precedence for addition restrictions being lifted. The whole argument for guns getting in the wrung hands would be invalidated which I believe would have a ripple effect on carry rights. A long shot I know, I hope this answers your question.

The two kids in the movie theater WERE safe because they were EDUCATED. IMO it's your thought process that creates the need for restrictions. 50+ years ago there were guns in just about every home in this country and kids knew what they were, when to touch them (& when not to) and how to safely handle them. Guns now are no different, the only difference is ignorance and lack of education coupled with the gun grabbed in the media telling everyone how guns are a problem, all while no one in the media (or politics) address the real problem that there are evil people in this world. They want to coddle the evil people believing that they can change those people. 99%of the membership here knows exactly what I'm saying!

I'd like to consider myself relatively tech savvy.. however, technology has no place in the firearms industry. Last thing I want if god forbid I ever have to use it in self defense is to have to hard reset my gun so that it functions correctly or install a software update.

Too many "what-ifs" render this useless even for LEOs.

1) Gloves?

2) Bloody/dirty/injured hands?

3) Can the tech be hacked?

 

4) Batteries?

5) Waterproof?

6) Tamperproof?
