Okay so I managed to catch up with one of my cop friends and we talked about how most cops die by their own weapons. Because of this, some cops will even become almost irrationally afraid during hand-to-hand combat. Sometimes the opponent is going for the cops gun, but sometimes the cops gun is the furthest thing from his mind... until you rest your hand on it in order to block him from going for it...

Anyway my friend told me something really interesting that could combat this prevalent fear. Apparently there has been research and experimentation on "smart guns", guns that utilize finger print recognition to prevent unauthorized users from firing them. Apparently New Jersey established some legislation in 2002 that would eventually mandate that all guns sold would have this feature, but it's been put on the back burner for nearly a decade due to the costs and how slow the development has been. The NRA apparently thinks of the development as an attempt to control citizen ownership of firearms or some mess like that and so have done whatever they could to impede the research.

Just found more info about it on wikepedia... More funding for the research has been funded this year. It would be work if we could at least get this working for our police forces... With these, they wouldn't have to worry so much about their own weapons being used against them. If your opponent wants to take your gun, let him, and then while he's confused about why he can't get it to work, take him down. I love it... it's crafty.:3 not to mention if this technology were made available to the public we'd have at least a bit less of the accidental deaths we have each year from kids finding and playing with their parents guns.

Lol yeah... ever see the game Watchdogs? There's actually technology that does most of the things you can do in the game... not necessarily from phone apps but it's still terrifying to think about. XD
