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.
'BigBadRyan86' 5 days 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

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.

Anyone who was going to do something bad or nefarious with their weapon would simply disable the device. This would also make the cost of the gun go through the roof. Another idea invented to punish hardworking European Americans. Shameful very shameful

Dumbest thing I've seen. It would alert people even if you're at a local shooting range of even hunting? And how do they expect you to disassemble and clean your gun without the hassle? Nice attempt trying it on an airsoft gun though. And those who are good with guns, as myself would just be able to remove it therefore defeating the purpose. It would also be a pain for all the unnecessary text messages and cause panic and concern.

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.

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

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,

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 Senpai Leader Of The Senpai Squad
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' 3 weeks 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.

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.

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.
'TheMistNinjaYT' 1 month ago
no one would buy this

and you really think murderers will use these? 🆗🆒
'Apache602' 1 month 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 month 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.

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

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?

"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.

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

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.
'BackgroundFilms' 1 month 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 month ago
Or you could move the wire that is attached to the trigger.. Or just cut it off completely.

yeah but as long as current guns are still working its not gonna be used
Charlie Extra

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.

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

FYI criminals buy their guns off the black market from Mexico. But we all know you're not interested in stopping criminals, penalising the police and legal law respecting gun owners is more likely in your case.
