Smith & Wesson tried inventing "smart guns" in the 1990s, but abandoned the project.
In the 1990s, Smith & Wesson tried to invent a "smart gun:" a gun that would only discharge at the hand and the consent of the owner. They soon abandoned the idea. Apparently, consumer backlash against the idea made the initiative non-lucrative. In 2016, former U. S. President Obama stated that, "if we can set it up so you can’t unlock your phone unless you’ve got the right fingerprint, why can’t we do the same thing for our guns?"

Should technology focus on creating "smart guns," weapons that won't discharge without the owner's consent and intention?
