This Smart Gun Could Save Lives

1077 ratings | 51727 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.

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

In this video you can see clearly why 90% of the American people isn´t mature enough for firearms. I´ve never needed a firearm in my life

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.

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 (4 days ago)
Yeah, right. It can be hacked and used by anyone other than the owner. Dumb patent idea. Very dumb.
TheUltimateBeing 01 (4 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 (7 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.

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 (7 days 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 (7 days 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 (7 days 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?

Its the owners responsible to keep them in a safe place.
Guns can jam and fingerprint sensors can misread. Placing both in a mass-produced device seems a bit risky considering lives can be at stake. Maybe the technology should be limited to rifles and other larger caliber weapons? Seems like a compromise. But I dunno. To some, guns are dangerous killing tools, to some, it's a hobby, and to others still, it's a way to keep a piece of mind. Any legislation will have to appeal to all three groups.
Scarlet Matt (7 days ago)
The worst thing to happen is someone hacking the authentication system and murdering someone essentially tying the real owner to the murder. The gun company will try to defend it's system. Another one is the gun not working when intended. Traditional firearms struggle with dirt and other elements, and this just adds another layer of complexity over it. Perhaps the most important counter argument is 80% lowers and ghost gunner. No way of tracing it. Or cad files that can be used to print out working firearms when metal 3D printing becomes easily accessible.

I still don’t think this is a great idea because 1. It’s a hassle for self defense 2. Unreliable 3. Can be hacked or if someone wanted to use it without it being there’s. They could take it apart and just cut the wire. 4. Government could litteraly hack into it and stop all guns from working. Last but not least, there are already 350 million guns in the US. How can we put this in 350 million that are already in use. I’ll admit, this is smarter thinking than gun control
How do you hack a device that is not connected to the internet? #3 is bunk.

People will never buy them too many problems they won’t work if you’re wearing gloves or if your hands are dirty and what if you need your gun in an emergency and you don’t place your finger in the right spot or you forgot to charge the gun so the scanner won’t work if people are using a gun for defense they want it to work when they need it in any conditions there is no time to fiddle around with the gun trying to get it to recognize your finger prints the scanner on my iPhone already pisses me off sometimes so the last place I would want it to be is on my guns

"Smart guns can prevent thousands of suicides, let's start there..." Well this liberal is either a liar or an idiot or both! Like somebody who wants to commit suicide will stop trying to do that just because he or she doesn't have access to a firearm. What's next? Let's ban trains too because people can jump in front of them!

smart guns are dangerous and shows how stupid people are, if you argue for a smart gun, you should not own a gun anyway, fingerprint technology or any technology can fail, through human error, wrong gun on duty etc, which is dangerous if you need the gun in the moment. A safe gun is one that works,nothing more nothing less ,without tec or human fingerprint input,etc, show some responsibility, and do what a normal person would do, buy a safe .

How does he figure it would reduce suicides? If someone wants to commit suicide, they don't really care about the method. If there is no gun around, they'll swallow a bottle of pills.
