You can design a sensor that can tell the difference between a gun and a steel toed shoe. Most places wouldn't use it because the cost is
prohibitive right now. But a high security, high traffic area would be a great place to put something like this.
No you can’t.
There is guns with the exact same size, weight, and shape as a metal fountain pin. Yes, I know they are single shot. But that is still one person
And it won’t stop someone from smuggling a gun in in pieces.
A glock barrel that is about the same size as a small metal pipe or metal fountain pin. Followed by the other plastic parts and springs. The ammo, one
or two rounds at a time. All those individual things wouldn’t set off such a system one at a time. But once on the inside, a minute inside the
bathroom, and you are ready to rock and roll.
Getting all that stuff in would probably take a week or two.
We fall back to the same old problem. All those systems are effective against someone with limited time and resources, but a person with no time limit
will be able to get through the system once they find it’s limits.
