An American company is currently developing a new security mechanism for guns that will use biometrics to authenticate users.
This identification technology would permit the owners of firearms to ensure that only authorized users are able to shoot them, which would provide greater safety to all involved.
The system being developed works like a switch. The owner of the gun would activate a switch attached to a digital fingerprint reader. The reader would then verify the fingerprint and only authorized users would be able to fire the gun.
