If you can't manage the -- -- To -- -- feel confident and he's confronted massive event and she wanted to personal statement.
Q kind of seven.
So what if each -- knew the person who is about to pull the trigger and if you didn't buy it you can't fire it.
The vice president says Joseph Biden that technology like that exists.
That -- available on every -- sold.
Terrorists there's significant evidence that would.
It may very well curtail what happened from Connecticut.
But we want to know how realistic is that technology and shouldn't be required by law we're joined now by trying to.
Extremely specialist for guns dot com Max slow back a good to see Max so.
We've seen James Bond movies some -- we think -- that technology looks so cool but is it actually real.
The vice president says were very close to this Smart gun technology where.
-- person who actually owns a gun would be the only one who could Feyerick is that correct.
Well there is a sort of technology in the works it's it's very much still in its infancy.
And there are some promising leads but nothing concrete exists right now.
And so hunger and it exists -- it.
If if it actually was there if it's a prototype right now tell me how war.
Yes there -- two branching two branches of technology for this there's radio and -- errors biometrics scanners.
And the radio system works.
Does the prototypes that are.
Most common and most successful or based on these radio scanners.
The way they operators with a reading or bracelet that the operator -- And anybody who has access of that -- or bracelet.
Can also operate the -- so it's not a totally secure system in an -- itself.
And I know that you have another visit with regard with Seles are -- cutting out I know that you have problems with -- with regard to self defense because there's a some sort of a failure rate on.
Well it depends -- on the particular company that's developing it but it can be as high as 10%.
And there's also kind of a lag between when you.
Grab the firearm and when the safety -- engages and when seconds count.
That's that is the last thing that you want to have happen and come between you -- -- -- But as somebody who's a gun specialist.
Do you see this becoming a reality let's say in the next decade and and would eventually be a good idea.
That you would be sort of fingerprinted coded so to speak so that only the person who owns a gun license to have it actually use it.
It would be a great ideal if that was possible and and maybe ten years from now.
There might be some better technology to support that type of safety.
But there are also other pitfalls.
Anything that can be.
Any security system that you have that's electronic can have other vulnerabilities like spoofing or blocking.
With the other branch with the biometrics scanner.
There -- other hurdles that hasn't broken.
Like if you're wearing a pair of gloves.
-- -- -- -- The work and -- going to be -- this I can imagine how people would immediately trying get past it I got to wrap up their Macs a -- -- live from Vegas this morning thanks much for your time and explain it to us.
