Should a child go hungry at school due to thier parents financial hardship?
Current Debate Topic
A new gun control bill is being put in front of the house that will require guns to have a Biometric safety control. Biometrics is a method that uses fingerprints or retinal scan to confirm the identity of the user and prevent unauthorized use of a device. This bill is presented to help prevent violent gun crimes and prevent the usage of stolen weapons. Currently, many security boxes and safes utilize this technology and would be a simple addition to the trigger or handle mechanism of any gun. The law would require the weapon to be registered and the gun to be set up to only allow specific household members to use them, preventing both criminals as well as children from taking and operating the gun.
Is this a healthy compromise for the anti gun control activists, will it provide the needed safety control without jeopardizing our safety? Will this bill open the door for congress to require other electronic devices, such as tracking systems or disabling chips already in the market? What are your thoughts on this new gun control path?
