Biometric gun lock has a fingerprint scanner

We probably don’t need this Pew Research survey to tell us that Americans are split down the middle on the issue of gun ownership. But here it is: 50 percent of us say gun control is more important than gun rights; 48 percent say the opposite.

But surely no one wants their gun to fall into the hands of a thief or murder, or worse — a child. So how to prevent that?

Engineer Omer Kiyani, who was shot in the face when he was 16 years old, has an innovative solution. It’s called Indentilock and it’s a biometric lock that attaches to the trigger mechanism and only comes off when activated by an authorized fingerprint. It’s similar to how the fingerprint lock on an iPhone works. Except in this case, the lock is FBI compliant and detachable.

This means you don’t need to fumble around for a key, should you need to use your gun quickly. And because several people can be authorized to use the device, you can make sure that only adults have access and not children.
