‘Smart Guns’ to Hit US Stores This Year [VIDEO]

As reported by Gizmodo, via a Reuters, smart gun makers LodeStar Works and SmartGunz LLC, both plan to release products later this year. The LodeStar version for “first-time buyers” could cost $895.

“We finally feel like we’re at the point where … let’s go public,” LodeStar Co-Founder Gareth Glaser told Reuters. “We’re there.”

Per Gizmodo: “LodeStar’s smart handgun reportedly utilizes a fingerprint authentication system, a near field communicator chip accessible by a phone app, and a physical pin pad for instances where the tech is made unusable in wet conditions. SmartGunz meanwhile told Reuters its authentication system focuses on radio frequency identification.”

Smith & Wesson, one of the country’s largest gun manufacturers, was first to release a smart gun prototype in 2000, but the plan was scrapped after pushback from the National Rifle Associaton and boycotts of the company’s products.

Smart guns aim to prevent unauthorized users such as children and convicted criminals from firing guns.

According to USA Today, LodeStar Works recently unveiled its 9mm smart handgun for shareholders and investors in Boise, Idaho. The company plans to launch a smart gun with RFID technology. Meanwhile, law enforcement agents are beta-testing SmartGunz LLC, products. 

As reported by The Hill, every year since 2018, the numbers of mass shooting deaths, murder-suicide deaths, and children that were killed or injured from guns have gone up. LodeStar aims to change that. 

“We think we can save better than 10,000 lives a year,” said Glaser.

Well I welcome it, let it come ill make sure I buy the machine gun version or ill configure it to an automatic weapon without using all that technology, no one has time to wait for that nonsense, but I'll keep what I already have,I don't wait on cops or politicians to come at my savior, a 19 years girl is shot over $100 at a burger king where were the cops, a duane read drugs got rob in the middle of the day, where were the cops? If a criminal break in to your house at night he sure aint come to hug you or will be waiting for the cops, the criminals are armed i suggest every innocent person who values life have some type of protection at home, or good luck and keep relying on those white cops, s*** these days they will shoot you in your own house.

Now look at that , no wonder so many people died from being killed by guns, just imagine if all these smart guns was available,that kid would not have been able to shoot up his school if the gun was owned by his parents, because only them would be able to use it. So many criminals would not be able to use a smart gun, no surprise the KKK/ NRA, was against it.
