This Smart Gun Could Save Lives

1316 ratings | 67374 views
Guns kill more than 30,000 Americans every year, far more than in any other developed country. While lawmakers and activists battle it out over legislative solutions, some are trying a different approach: integrating smart technology into guns. In this episode of "The Spark," Bloomberg follows 21-year-old inventor and entrepreneur Kai Kloepfer, who's created a "smart" handgun that could save thousands of lives.

I could see how its useful. What if you dropped your gun in an exchange and a criminal tried to use it against you?

It's simple as that, incidents in the past has proven that the general public in U.S. is just not intelligent enough to carry a gun and the problem of safety could be solved at a large extent if all the privately owend guns ceased to exist or at least would be heavily regulated. As much as guns are fun that is still a fact.

Actually I kind of like this. It's going to replace traditional guns but if you're a police officer or someone in that line of work, it makes you a lot safer. I'm not sure about the price but anyone can break into a safe, anyone can take your gun off your holster, but this is a safeguard that acts as a last line of defense, it's made to protect yourself more than anyone else.

So the officer of the story needs a smart gun because he is dumb...got it, by the way wouldn't save more lifes no guns than smart guns?

Just screw the guns. Guns are for those who doesn't feel safe. Everyone could feel safe knowing that no one has guns.

This has nothing to do with safety. The investors of this startup are hoping for the (Make a law create a job) money tree.
kilgarragh (23 days ago)
Normal gun. Kid finds the gun, it’s going to be locked. The safety is on, if the kid knew about the safety and could turn it off. He would know not to hurt him or anyone else. That’s why, guns are smart enough now

Think about a criminal hacker who make all smart guns unable to fire at him.

Awesome concept for COPS AND MILITARY GRADE WEAPONS. But NOT for the common person. But is this for saving lives or making money.

It can also be hacked by a simple magnet, as has ben aptly proven. Its just another gun ... no amount of gimmick will make a gun safe.

Red Dead why is it that whenever someone brings up a solution to fix a part of America’s gun problem you call them libtards instead of having a mature debate? I see a bunch of Republicans doing this, you call liberals retards, but you are so retarded you can’t even form a simple argument. Lol

TheUltimateBeing 01 (28 days ago)
It won't stop mass shootings period. Here's what'll happen. The tech fails and a lunatic gets the gun and goes wild. Or the lunatic learns the owner's access code and kills with it. Same outcome. Only a SLIGHT hindrance before it.
TheUltimateBeing 01 (28 days ago)
Yeah, right. It can be hacked and used by anyone other than the owner. Dumb patent idea. Very dumb.
TheUltimateBeing 01 (28 days ago)
There is no such thing as a smart gun. It if fires, it is lethal and prone to causing deliberate or accidentally killings.

What is the solution if i can buy a M-14 in a super market? And if i wanna kill my self the problem is my depression not the tool which i use to kill my self
Thor S.W. (29 days ago)
This should implement dependable law into it, and the smart gun need to apply the new technology into it like electro or radio microchip owner's identification system into the gun instead of fingerprint technology because of practical use when the dirty and unable to read.
Aayana R (29 days ago)
This is a great idea! No idea comes out perfectly on the first try, but if it's a step that can even save one life...amazing!

Sam Sjk (30 days ago)
The people that are mad about smart guns are the ones who use guns as a way to hide that they are scared. If they can't shoot a gun because it's locked they will lose their minds. "Oh no this gun has a extra safety feature so my kids can't get a hold of it and shoot someone with it". These are also the people who have 50 guns laying around their house not locked and with the safety off. If your kid mass shoots a school it's not on me.

RedLight GreenArrow (30 days ago)
Is it just me or are far right people just absolutely hates anything technology related? Even if it’s a smart gun? I feel like if a geek or nerd to them is behind anything, they automatically hate it. Whether if it’s something like Apple Pay, electric cars, or in this case something like a smart gun. Holding back progress as a whole.

bob smith (30 days ago)
except for this to actually be implemented means you would have to label every gun ever made made prior to it as illegal, as well as convince every single manufacturer in the world to now only produce smart guns. Ya, never gonna happen
Mozart (30 days ago)
Over-engineering at it's best. This is the definition of solutionism. Guns work just fine and they are safe unless they are broken. If I steal your smart gun, it's a matter of minutes I just remove your lock pin from the trigger assembly. Put a nano GPS tracker device and a mechanism to destroy the firing pin that would only work thru point to point user defined technology that's open source which would invalidate government intervention. This is a "destroy if stolen" mechanism and then you stay a chance.
John Doe (30 days ago)
Bloomberg; go away. Nobody wants your opinion on gun control. We want to protect ourselves, and you cannot stop us. We aren't giving them up no matter what you do. The only thing you accomplish is pushing moderate and right-leaning centrists like myself towards the republican party. I have absolutely no interest in voting for ANY democrats because they are so vehemently anti-gun. Drop the anti-gun stuff and we can start talking. Until then, I'm voting red.

What if a kid knows how to use a gun and gets attacked and mommy’s gun won’t shoot causing his death 💀
Peppe Ddu (1 month ago)
You can make a smart-gun "fail safe" If the battery die or there's a malfunction the gun defaults to "unlock" (aka it will fire with anyone using it) It's a system designed to protect children, not a system to prevent people from using their guns.

Also, that horse crap about suicide is ridiculously annoying. Reason, people can use knives & drugs to do harm to themselves.
SoonToBlow (1 month ago)
A gun has never killed someone before. The fuck? 30,000 people have been killed by people, not guns. Guns are an object it needs a person to activate it's powers. Also, no need for smart guns, just smarter people. Simply lock your gun in a lock box and not leave it on the damn table, specially with a child in the home. Not the guns fault, but rather the person's fault.
Username47948 (1 month ago)
People don't kill themselves or shoot up schools because they have access to firearms. They're gonna find a way to accomplish their goal. Look at Japan, guns are very strictly controlled and suicide rates are higher than in the US. Mass murderers don't need guns to kill. Timothy McVeigh didn't use a gun and he killed more than any mass shooter in US history. If your fingerprint smart gun works as well as the fingerprint reader on my phone then you'll have sacrificed more lives than you saved. In the near future some woman will end up raped and murdered because the guy at the gun store sold her a smart gun that took to long to read her fingerprint. I would not trust my life to this technology. Even if it did work his prototype uses a single stack magazine instead of a double stack, about halving the magazine capacity of that Glock

I still believe that gun safety is one of the upmost important requirements to be a gun owner, and that it is their responsibility to look after their firearm. Even though I'm more liberal than conservative, this sadly won't solve the problem completely. And if a smart gun is in the hands of someone long enough, someone somewhere will find a way around it. I remember watching a video about bump stocks, and how it works. They said something along the lines of, "Is making bump stocks illegal going to save lives? Yes. Will someone find a way around it? Yes. Just like with Prohibition in the 1920's, someone is going to find a way around it." And although guns aren't illegal, unlike alcohol during Prohibition, someone will unfortunately create a product to put on the market to disable a smart gun, using a loophole that will make said product legal, just like the bump stock. Also, I live in NJ, and I personally think that law will cause so much more outrage from gun owners, rather than save lives. I had to register my airsoft guns because of some laws passed a couple of years ago, and that already gave me such a headache.

Nope. If you make stupid crap like this people will just hack them etc. Its the same thing as breaking into a gun safe to steal the gun. A stupid solution for the wrong problem. If we focused all of these antigun efforts on fighting actual crime we wouldn't still be having gun violence problems. People will get a hold of, or make their own firearms even if they become illegal, so why not try to fight the criminal element instead of the tool they use?
