Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams thinks that gun technology needs an upgrade, and he's offered up more than $1 million from his budget to help make it happen.
"Smart guns" are weapons that can only by fired by an authorized user. At a Tuesday press conference, Adams reiterated a position he'd taken earlier this month during a symposium he hosted on the technology: that guns haven't changed since the 1980's, despite technological leaps in many other fields.
