Fingerprint-activated 9mm pistol launched
The Biofire smart gun is expected to hit the market in 2024. At that point, some argue, it could go a long way toward curbing the gun crisis we face in this country. One of the main advantages of Biofire smart guns is that they can greatly reduce accidental shootings in your home.Last year, the New England Journal of Medicine reported that gun-related accidents, homicides and suicides were the leading causes of death among U.S. children and teens

Additionally, smart guns can help reduce gun theft. Traditional firearms can be stolen and easily sold on the black market, fueling crime and gun violence. However, smart guns that require biometric or electronic authentication are more difficult for criminals to steal and illegally use.
Smart guns can also help reduce the use of guns by criminals. Since smart guns can only be fired by authorized users, they prevent criminals from using stolen firearms to commit crimes. This can make it harder for criminals to obtain guns and reduce gun violence in our communities.

How does the new smart gun work?
The new $1,499 smart gun just went on sale for pre-orders. The Biofire 9mm pistol has a fingerprint unlock system, which basically means that anyone who is not “authorized” cannot fire the gun. The smart gun is equipped with technology that requires the owner to register a fingerprint on the gun, and only authorized users can unlock it. This will prevent children or anyone who is not the owner of the firearm from using the weapon.
The fingerprint lock system can be unlocked with the owner’s fingerprint within a second using a fingerprint or face recognition sensor. When it’s no longer being used, it quickly locks again. You can pre-order for a refundable $149 deposit, and orders are expected to be fulfilled early next year.
I tested a similar smart gun Back in 2015, iGun technology was impressive. It uses the pairing ring to unlock the gun. Only those wearing special iGun rings can shoot.

Who Makes Smart Guns?
Smart gun idea comes from Kai Kloepfer, CEO of Colorado Gun Manufacturing BiofireKloepfer was inspired to create a gun with this level of safety during the 2012 shooting at the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. Twelve people were shot dead by mass shooter at a screening of the film “The Dark Knight Rises”. Kloepfer was in high school at the time and lived near where the shooting took place. The tragedy prompted him to present his idea to a local science fair the following year, and he founded Biofire in 2016.

How will this affect mass shootings in the US?
The smart gun alone is unlikely to be effective in preventing mass shootings in the U.S., since it can still be obtained by anyone who wants to use it to cause harm. Yet the locking mechanism of this new smart gun could have stopped school shooters such as Adam Lanza, who used his mother’s firearm to murder 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.
According to a 2021 medical journal article published in JAMA Network, more than 40 percent of American children in a recent survey claimed they could get their parents’ “safe” firearms within two hours.
Still, the technology could benefit responsible gun owners by improving safety and reducing the likelihood of tragic accidents, especially for young children who may not understand the dangers of guns.
the bottom line
This new smart gun from Biofire could offer a solution to some of the problems related to gun safety and gun violence. Its fingerprint and facial recognition sensors could definitely help reduce accidental shootings, gun theft, and criminal use of guns. While this new technology may not solve the problem of mass shootings, it could still benefit responsible gun owners and increase safety for everyone, especially those with children at home.
