Proclaiming that “the universe around guns has changed,” and that guns “need to evolve into safer tools for personal protection and recreation,” Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams convened politicians, gun control advocates and even a gun manufacturer at Borough Hall on Tuesday for the New York City Smart Gun Symposium, which he touted as “the largest to-date gathering on advancing smart gun technology.”
A “smart” gun can only be fired by someone authorized to use it, using a specially crafted device that would activate it. On hand at the symposium was Ernst Mauch of the German gun-maker Armatix.
