COLUMBUS, Geor. (WMGT) - As the gun control debate continues in Washington, a Columbus, Georgia company has what it says is the answer to make guns safer without putting any restrictions on the owner.
The company is called Gun Safe Technology, Inc. It's a group made up of doctors, lawyers, and law enforcement officers. They have designed a finger print scanner to go on your gun, so you decide who fires your weapon.
"We have some pretty unique features in our design, so that if the person attempts to remove the device from the weapon, it will literally destroy the weapon," Charlie Miller explains. Miller is a business attorney in Columbus, and is also on the Board of Directors for Gun Safe Technology.
Miller explained that this technology might be a bit rudimentary right now, but they have a design plan to install a new type of scanner that will be installed inside the gun, rather than mounted to the outside.
The finger print scanner is also an instant scan, so there is no wait time to activate your weapon. 20,000 people can be put into the computer system, which Miller said would be to accommodate a police force or battalion of soldiers.
