Some years ago there was a project that involved a small chip inside the handle of the gun or in the stock of a rifle, and the cop or assingned person
who that gun/rifle belongs to would have a small module, sort of like a remote start, lock/unlock type thing that sends a signal to the chip in the
gun/rifle, activating a small solenoid and would allow the gun/rifle to work. If it was taken away from the cop or whomever, at a very small distance,
the gun/rifle would become inactive and unable to fire. There were versions for the civilian market too.
It was a great idea and I think the excuse to not implement it was cost, but with cheap miniature electronics these days, I am still surprised that
the idea has not been re-introduced and implemented. It would save alot of lives.
