This is a “safe gun”

Gun violence is an extremely large concern throughout the United States and the world. While a lot is thought up about how we can change the law to combat gun violence, not much thought turns to how we could actually make safer guns.

Kai Kloepfer decided to turn to gun control by creating a unique firearm that could potentially save thousands of lives across the world. At just 18 years old this teenager’s invention has a special fingerprint sensor embedded into it so only an authorized person can fire it. Even if someone is disarmed the gun will not fire unless it is held by an authorized individual.

Safe gun technology like this is being funded by a new indiegogo campaign and it could make its way to the market in a few years.

Do you think that there is such thing as a safe gun? Is this a step in the right direction for gun control?
