GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEMS ON FIREARMS
You asked whether it is feasible to install or attach global positioning system (GPS) equipment in or on firearms without impairing their usability. If so, you wanted to (1) know the added costs of adding such equipment and (2) the potential disadvantages of using such equipment.
While GPS works anywhere there is a line of sight with four or more transmitting satellites, there are locations such as the interior of large buildings where GPS signals cannot be received. This could interfere with the tracking of a GPS-equipped firearm. While other technologies could be used to determine the firearm's location, there may be locations where they also do not work.
