The Science Behind Smart Guns

  1. 1. States Push for “Smart” Gun Legislation ! A  “Smart”  Gun  is  one  that  will  only  fire  if  the   authorized  shooter  fires  the  gun.   ! This  gun  uses  RFID  (radio  frequency  ID)  or   biometrics  to  identify  the  shooter.   ! Many  states  are  pushing  for  legislation  to   require  all  new  handguns  to  be  “Smart”   guns.  
  2. 2. Benefits  of  “Smart”  Guns   ! A  stolen  gun  could  not  be  fired  by  a   criminal.   ! A  young  child  could  not  fire  a  gun  and   unintentionally  injure  or  cause  their   own  fatality.    
  3. 3. • This  type  of  gun  uses  physical features  to  determine  who  can   fire  the  handgun.   • These  can  include  voice recognition,  fingerprints,  retina   scanners,  or  even  the  way  the   shooter  grips  the  gun.   • Using  one  or  more  of  these recognition  features,  the  safety   will  be  switched  off  and  the   shooter  allowed  to  fire  the  gun.   Biometric  Gun  
  4. 4. • This  type  of technology  requires   the  shooter  to  wear  an   ID  chip  somewhere  on   their  body  for  the  gun   to  shoot.   • This  type  of  chip  can be  in  a  watch,  ring,  or   even  in  a  piece  of   clothing.     RFID  (radio  frequency  ID)  Gun  
  5. 5. Still  Under  Development   • One  company  has released  a  “Smart”  Gun.   • Armatrix  uses  RFID technology  with  the   computer  chip  placed   inside  a  watch.
