Accidental discharge of guns causes 12,000 injuries and 700 deaths annually. Seventy percent are children under the age of 18. Every year, there are approximately 19,000 suicides by gun. Half of these occur using other people’s weapons. TriggerSmart has developed a smart gun that utilizes RFID technology to ensure that only an authorized user can fire the weapon, rendering it harmless for children or intruders. Learn how the process can also be used by law-enforcement agencies, as well as by the military.
