Okay, hear me out on this. Being a bit of a technical guy, I always look at trying to resolve problems via technology, and this whole thing with mass shootings has had me thinking of ways to use technology to try and curb these tragic events. Travel below the orange croissant if you wish.
We have Wi Fi in almost every school, government building, and mall in America. This means we have all sorts of forms of wireless communications. Now stay with me here.
So, let's say we create an electronic locking device in guns, that is activated by wireless connections. So, whenever you're in a mall, school, etc. the gun's trigger is locked. But, when you're outside of the "range" of these signals, the trigger is no longer locked? Now, if we were to impose this sort of thing, we would get the NRA saying it would cost $ to do this. And our argument could be, that arming every teacher and putting armed guards in every school would cost money too.
I realize this is fairly high level, and many can shoot holes in the idea, but we need to look at ways to stop these sorts of tragedies from happening.
