Joe Biden Floats Idea of "Smart Gun" Technology, But Is It Realistic?
What if your gun knew who you were?
Vice President Joe Biden, who's leading a task force on reducing gun violence, mentioned the idea of a "smart gun," which would recognize the owner and only work for that person.
"If that were available on every weapon sold, there is significant evidence that may very well have curtailed what happened up in Connecticut," Biden said on Friday.
The "smart gun" was featured
in the latest James Bond movie, "Skyfall." The firearm recognized 007 by his palm print.
On Fox and Friends this morning, Gretchen Carlson talked to Max Slowik of Guns.com, an expert on the gun industry.
He explained that widespread use of such a device is still a long way off, describing the "smart gun" technology as still being "very much in its infancy."
