if you are in your backyard shooting this , the SWAT team might show up with some serious firepower

how about you guys just get some real gun laws

I feel like people would dry fire to get rid of people in the area. Also this type of thing world be easy to deactivate.
Andy Albizures
'Andy Albizures' 1 year ago
This is such a good idea .... every time you go to the gun range you will clog up the cops notifications, your phone would be using butt loads of data, and receiving tons of texts that the gun has been fired. This is impractical
John Vasquez

I swear you people live in lala land. In absolutely everyway that is an absolutely idiotic idea

Not all guns need to be like this. Maybe if you have criminal records or something. If guns had this it wouldn't be freedom cause the government could track your every location.
'It's Just Ryan' 1 year ago
As a liberal, I can say this is nothing more than a liberal pipe dream that Republicans would block at every turn. What if you owned a gun like this and brought it to the shooting range? The video implies that the alert is sent when the trigger is pulled, so what if someone dry fires the gun? If the gun sends out a single then it's very easy to also buy something to block the signal. The video also implies that 2 pieces are required to make this work: The piece that detects the trigger pull on the gun, and the piece that actually broadcasts the signal. So unless you build both of those things in to the gun then you can just take the gun and leave the transmitter at home and out of range of the gun. Etc, etc, etc. This thing is pointless. If you guys want high hopes for the gun safety of the future, it's slim to none in this country. MAYBE the next best thing would be the biometric gun. But it won't stop the circulation of illegal firearms for decades to come.

what if ur just shooting in your back garden do u want to alert your neibors that there is a shooting taking place
'HeartilyKay' 1 year ago
Find a way when the chip is removed that the gun won't fire and this would be absolutely almost perfect.

For criminals, it would simply be circumvented, removed, or deactivated. It would not exist on black market guns. It would however, be able to notify the police department of when a police officer has had to discharge their firearm, and help off-duty cops alert their department. It could also help undercover cops, but the signal might be caught in a high profile area. As for responsible civilians, government has no place in the surveillance of the people, the possibility of a 1984-styled government tyranny is too great.

Criminals are gonna use black market guns not legal guns
akiko de guzman
'akiko de guzman' 1 year ago
People will just find a way to deactivate it. Also, besides cops using it, if people know that a microchip is in the gun, they wouldn't choose a gun to be their murder weapon.
'thenatha134' 1 year ago
great for shooting ranges or police guns in my opinion
Kenny Alvarado
'Kenny Alvarado' 1 year ago
So when I do a functions check on my gun , are the police gonna come knocking , or how about when I go to the shooting range or go hunting
Kenny Alvarado
'Kenny Alvarado' 1 year ago
There is no way in hell a criminal is going to purchase this thing . This is just encouraging more people to go on the black market for their guns
'SeanG' 1 year ago
a gun is just quick and strong pressure that is being applied to a small spot, do you really think that it would be hard to bypass this system?
Gregory Mesa
'Gregory Mesa' 1 year ago
The only problem with this is it would have to be a small chip very difficult for criminals to scratch out because if not they would just screw with it like they scratch serial numbers off guns,
Sophia Hayes

What about a gun that uses finger print id before you can pull the trigger... or with a finger print scanner * on * the trigger?
'Mörder' 1 year ago
Good Idea on Paper, Bad idea in practice. 1. There are materials that can Jam the waves, making the device useless. 2. Almost anything connected to the internet can be hacked into. 3. Any sensible gun owner knows how to strip the gun and unless a full disassembly is required, letting them easily remove the device from the gun. 4. There are already millions of guns in the US today and it would be impossible to find them all to attach the chip. 5. Ghost guns exist. (
'orley' 1 year ago
While this was made with the best of intentions, this would do absolutely nothing to curb gun violence. Criminals would either buy/sell untracked guns or just fucking rip the trackers off them. I don't agree with the whole "gun control is pointless 'cause criminals don't follow the law", but this is an example of exactly that.
'alikayleblanc' 1 year ago
Why can't buzzfeed make more videos like this instead of talking about how bad fake news articles are when they do the same! This video is actually interesting

Wouldn't people just cut the wires that connect it to the internet so that it couldn't be tracked?
'Malaysia' 1 year ago
Yeah, just ask bad guys to put those on their guns.
Cold Warrior
'Cold Warrior' 1 year ago
lol throw down the gun after and grind off the serial number. or disconnect the location capabilities. this is a pathetic idea with a massive potential for abuse.
'Malvavisco' 1 year ago
Oh, so this is what is meant by "the internet of things..."
'JohnTyler' 1 year ago
Bad idea, this is just registration. THAT's BAD!
Invisible Ghost

they could just hide the mechanism inside the gun
'PizzaGod' 1 year ago
optional is fine with me, but criminals will just take the gun apart and remove the unit.
'Blondie62' 1 year ago
What if someone takes the chip out, geniuses?
'maythewarbegin' 1 year ago
kind of useless since ya know... gotta take a gun apart to clean it and could just take the chip out
Nathaniel King

This is an invasion of privacy to the highest degree. Another way the government can track our every move.
'Chubs2246' 1 year ago
What if the government uses the gun to track known criminals, people of interest, and people with a history? Isn't that unconstitutional?
'SuicideHotline123' 1 year ago
There is no doubt this tech would save at least a few lives while infringing no negative impact on anyone which makes it brilliant.
Tristin Hinojosa
'Tristin Hinojosa' 1 year ago
Any persons with common sense will ditch the wires and boards before ever firing the gun(it's a safety hazard with and real firearm)...this needs a lot more research before it could ever be use able
Mr ward
'Mr ward' 1 year ago
Awwh not like you can't take a gun apart 😕.
'wackywong' 1 year ago
Best solution is, of course, abolition. If you do want to keep the guns this might be a good step in the right direction, although I can't shake off the feeling that the chip can just be easily taken out by criminals.

shoot right next to a computer thats connected to 4g connection. Of course, its going to get a good location.

its pointless, criminals can just remove it. Edit: it need power, so in time its even more pointless
Hahaha, what if people were smart enough to avoid buying a defective murder weapon?
I think the raygun mark 2 has a nice design

Pushpop LoC
'Pushpop LoC' 1 year ago
Just gonna say this, it would only work if this was natively embedded by the manufacturers. No one's going to willingly place this on their weapons due to possible potential for hacking which would in turn cause more issues when it comes to how this can actually manipulate behavior around the user.
Eternal Mist
'Eternal Mist' 1 year ago
no one would buy this
'stella' 1 year ago
and you really think murderers will use these? 🆗🆒
'Apache3602' 1 year ago
great idea but gun owners don't want to be tracked it's not profitable by gun manufacturers standards and gun manufacturers wants everyone to have a gun for profits so if you can't shoot someone and get away and it doesn't make that person get a gun profits go down. stolen or legal guns the manufacturers don't doesn't care it's all profitable
mike smithson
'mike smithson' 1 year ago
This is a pretty good idea. Would be better if it also tracked when the weapon is unholstered. Knowing itll be tracked the officer mite not be so quick to stick it in someones face in a heated verbal exchange. There are absolutely times when it should be pulled "just in case" but it seems to be the go-to just to de-escalate a tense situation like tasers were before many depts banned them because they were being used to much and killing people.

You guys are lunatic liberals, no criminal is gonna buy a gun with a tracker on it, they could just as easily buy a gun illegally and it wouldn't have a serial number so they could not be tracked all you are doing is making innocent citizens feel like they are on house arrest
Tyler Swan
'Tyler Swan' 1 year ago
im confused is this for normal people or police? Because this would require a battery and wiring so all the person would have to do it unplug it, discharge the battery, or cut a vital component.
Mason Ovark
'Mason Ovark' 1 year ago
There are so many flaws with this idea. There's no way I'd be okay with the government knowing when I've shot my gun. What if I'm at a range? Is everybody around me going to get a text that there's been a shooting?
Tesla Haxz
'Tesla Haxz' 1 year ago
see people, this is a lot more reasonable than "ban all the gunnss!!!1!!" I am pro gun rights, and this has tons of flaws, but at least it is an attempt at a realistic way to help with the problem.
Simon Marchand
'Simon Marchand' 1 year ago
"What if all guns had this?" Is this sponsored by the NRA? What about: "What if we had less guns?" Or "What if guns were made less accessible to unstable people"? If all guns had this, someone would figure out how to get rid of it, that's it... That video is a waste of time.

This is just another way for the NSA and govt to get more info on us and nobody would use this type of gun pretty much any criminal or anyone will buy a throw away piece that's old or been used before to kill or make their own
'Melissas' 1 year ago
It's exactly like the guns in the book series Legend
Hubosys BioGuard
'Hubosys BioGuard' 1 year ago
You can't exactly convince criminals to put it on, and gun owners who only ever use it for the range or hunting wouldn't need it, concealed carry mmaayybbee, but really a bit of a stretch a normal person doesn't exactly want to be tracked, which you can be even if you haven't fired a shot it's not hard

'George's Masonry' 1 year ago
There are already somewhere near 400 million privately owned firearms in the US -- and that's just a guess of legally owned guns. While perhaps such technology may have an application in law enforcement or in the military, it's ignorant of the reality that with so many guns already available, *criminals* would have no trouble avoiding a mandate requiring this technology on civilian owned guns. Guns are easily modified. Parts are easily changed. Guns can also be made at home. This is simply pure fantasy.
Mason Ward
'Mason Ward' 1 year ago
Lol. Only good guys would forfeit their guns to get this installed, meaning the bad guys will still have ghost guns.. maybe good for police?? Idk
'CountZer0' 1 year ago
Or you could move the wire that is attached to the trigger.. Or just cut it off completely.
'3StarLogo' 1 year ago
yeah but as long as current guns are still working its not gonna be used
Charlie Extra
'Charlie Extra' 1 year ago
very nice concept and i hope it could be refined further. just because you pulled the trigger doesn't mean that those are "shots fired" scenario. People do dry fire their guns. I hate for cops to show up when you're cleaning you gun.

So the 450,000,000 firearms already in America(legally) will be worth a whole lot more money in resale...and all the illegal ones(another 15000000-150000000..since they are illegal, and no one knows the amount) will be even a better option for crime..Good to know

i could see it helping with stolen guns but with most of the chopping an customizing criminals actually do to their guns they might just cut those parts out its like the nras failed ideas of putting chips in firearms to only let its owner use the weapon it looks good on paper but comes with to many complications afterwards your best bet is using a military technology that already exist its a radar that was put on vehicles it identifies a gunshot its location an trajectory put these up on street lights school building malls police cars an the such it seems like that would be a more productive tool for finding an active shooter
