Smart Gun Symposium
January 28, 2015 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm
Gun violence is one of this country’s most frustrating, intractable and devastating public health issues. Since the turn of the century, approximately 500,000 American lives have been lost to gun violence. The number of casualties from firearms in the U.S is nearly 2000 percent higher than the average for all other industrial societies. Despite the urgency suggested by these grim statistics, new gun legislation is still highly controversial and seen as unlikely to pass at either the federal level or in most state capitals.
You do not want to miss the Smart Gun Symposium! We have assembled experts from around the world to discuss and debate this promising new technology.
- Is smart gun technology viable?
- What are the arguments against smart guns?
- What is the investment opportunity for smart gun technologies?
- What are the political and commercial impediments?
