Making guns, not the criminals who use them the problem… then trying to solve it.
Smart Tech for Firearms is the first in a four-challenge series designed to foster innovation to reduce gun violence. It is a request for proposals from innovators around the globe to submit an idea for technology that, when applied to a firearm, reliably recognizes an authorized user and blocks unauthorized use. At least $1 million will go directly toward innovators.

I’m not interested in expensive derpy smart guns that depend on technology that could easily fail or not work as intended.
A useless video with soothing piano music and some people talking about the challenge:
I wonder if that San Francisco police chief would be on board with his officers having smart guns? AHAHHAHAHHAHAHAH right… but he expects the rest of us to have them to keep us safe.
You have until March 31, 2014 to submit your application to make the world a safer place with reduced gun violence.
