A new type of ‘smart’ handgun which can be fired only by verified users is finally set to become available in the US later this year, after nearly two decades of development.

Four-year-old manufacturer LodeStar Works unveiled its 9mm smart handgun for shareholders and investors at an event in Boise, Idaho this week, alongside news that a Kansas company, SmartGunz LLC, have also started beta testing a similar model with law enforcement agencies in the region.

Both companies hope to have a product commercially available to consumers sometime in 2022.

Reuters reports that LodeStar co-founder Gareth Glaser had been inspired after hearing one too many stories about children being shot whilst playing with an unattended gun.

They had this technology for a fair bit. I even think we talked on the forum about it.  The biggest complaints was the fact that it did restrict the gun to just one user and requiring guns to use this technology was a "creeping" form of gun control so the NRA and the likes were vehemently against it.
