This Smart Gun Could Save Lives

1518 ratings | 87718 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.

If youre anti smart gun, then really is no solution coming from you. you deny background checks, mental health funding, gun bans, anything that stems the tide of death. Then you have the arrogance to accuse the Left of anything?

Just use a regular lock, if you are away from the gun lock it up. If you want it accessible then carry it a holster.

2/3 of that 30,000 gun deaths in the US each year are suicides. This number also involves justified shootings and police shootings. Most of the rest are gang related killings in isolated areas of inner cities like south side Chicago and West Baltimore. There are over 357,000,000 legally owned firearms in the US and that number grown each day. How about teaching law abiding and sane people to respect firearms and know how to safely use them since they are not going anywhere anytime soon?

Or you can teach everyone in the house gun safety, and get them used to having guns around so it isn't one of those, when it actually happens sinerio.

Smart guns may have a scanning delay and will probably take that split second you need to react. It's kind of a interesting idea but it will not work for everyone, I'll keep my guns with the traditional safety mechanism.

I'm wondering if the liberal had his feelings hurt after he touched the gun...

how bout you be fukin responsible and hide the gun i mean you know you have a child and a gun at some point kids will learn to know how to use guns due to video games etc. so be responsible and keep your guns
Anthony Lane (15 days ago)
Don’t leave your firearm on the kitchen table. You know you have a child, you shouldn’t be a police officer if you leave your gun on the table for your child to pick up.

They're simply inferior, and cant be used with existing parts. its like an electric vehicle, if someone wants the means to use mechanical machines because they last longer they can. The new Jersey law is unconstitutional, and is effectively moot since its impossible to prosecute on. There are already superior locks that insert into the barrel and only deflate when you enter a combination.

Yeah it “went red” after 3 seconds of leaving your finger on that tiny button without moving. This is no gun for CC or really anything. Just an unreliable glock

What if your forced to fire from the other hand... In a self defence situation you might have too.

I install biometrics and it works about 60% of the time.... In a self defense situation I wouldn't trust it.... We use biometrics at Sea Tec airport and it never reads all the time... Sometime you have to place your finger 2 or 3 times before it reads.

Can we please just not freaking call it “smart”!? I don’t consider my front door smart, or any level just because it has a lock on it, no matter what the mechanism. Also, something to think about. I can’t tell you the number of times my phone won’t unlock with my fingerprint because I roughed my hands up a little at work. Sure wouldn’t be very convenient in a life or death situation to fire blanks just because I mowed my yard that day. Just pointing out limitations in the current level of technology. Maybe this has been addressed already with your product.

Another gun will "save lives". How long can they keep selling that mantra? My guess is, until people get smarter, which is why we have so many.

Not ALL people buy guns for self-defense. These people don’t want someone telling them how to live but they tell gun shop owners what not to sell.

I would not purchase one, The smart thing, put gun training in schools. I taught my children to handle firearms from the very moment they cast there eyes upon one. I like the idea of being able to leave my home and know my children are safe because they know how to defend themselves. The best gun control is to learn gun control.

For all of those smart gun haters, especially the dumba$$ who think you have to “reboot” a gun, I hope you have children...

I live in Canada and I don't understand the need for all these guns and why even things like smart guns have so much opposition like I would think a country that encourages technological advancement, private business, and innovation would be more open to at least this considering at least can keep their guns

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.

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
