HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Connecticut’s two U.S. Senators are praising a White House report encouraging ‘Smart Gun’ technology.
It would allow a gun to only be used by the person who owns that gun, the match made by fingerprint technology. Only one person could fire that gun. It’s similar to ‘smart phone’ technology and advocates believe it would prevent accidental shootings by children every year.
“Had Nancy Lanza had ‘Smart Gun’ technology available to her, maybe she would have bought it, and maybe her son would never have gotten his hands on those weapons and maybe Sandy Hook would never have happened…we don’t know,” said Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut.)
The President noted since the technology exists to unlock a phone with a fingerprint, you should be able to do the same thing with a gun.
