An “authorized user recognition” firearm is a concept whereby a firearm would have some sort of technology built into it to recognize and only be capable of firing for an “authorized user.” This concept is sometimes colloquially called “smart guns” or “personalized guns.”
The National Shooting Sports Foundation does not oppose the development of authorized user recognition technology for firearms.
The firearm industry is opposed to mandates on the use of this conceptual technology due to product liability concerns, and unintended safety consequences.
