Smart Guns

Aug 12, 2014

Personalized guns, or smart guns, are firearms designed to operate only for their authorized users. Gun control activists argue that these types of weapons could save thousands of lives a year. We'll look at smart gun technology and their policy implications with Stephen Teret, co-author of a new Abell Report on smart guns, and the founding director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research; and the director of the Hopkins Center for Law and the Public's Health. 

Smart guns are programmed to fire only by an authorized user.
