The device could eject a sabotage liquid when limited number of bullets have been used after the expiration date of the last registering, stolen guns would only be usable for a limited time
In most cases, biometric gun locks come in the form of a fingerprint trigger lock. This means that the lock requires your fingerprint to open. The lock includes a small scanner, which is used to scan your fingerprint, putting it into the memory of the lock.
Once that biometric information is stored, you will need to apply your finger to the scanner so it can read your fingerprint and authenticate it before allowing the lock to open.
Update, We have not found a biometric gun trigger lock that we can recommend at this time. The last one we tested did not work very well and the company has since gone out of business.
Please Contact Us if you find a Biometric fingerprint Trigger Lock and signup for our Biometric Security Devices Newsletter and we will notify you when we test one.
There has been renewed interest in smart guns since the Newtown school shooting, which reinvigorated the gun-control debate. However, there is immense pressure not to be the first to sell them. That’s because of a New Jersey law passed in 2002 known as the Childproof Handgun Law, which says that all guns sold in New Jersey must be state-approved smart guns within three years of a smart gun being sold anywhere in the country. The goal was to make smart guns mandatory as soon as the technology existed. Officially, no smart gun has been sold in the US yet — meaning if Raymond had sold one, it would have triggered the clause in New Jersey.
"My apologies to the people of New Jersey," Raymond said in the video, which was posted to Facebook but has since been deleted. "I did not know that I would be screwing you over."
