College students in Brooklyn are about do to something the National Rifle Association has refused to — build a smart gun.
Borough President Eric Adams has tasked college students with developing technology that would allow a weapon to be fired only by an authorized user. The NYPD will help test the designs.
“The NYPD’s range officers will help work out the kinks,” said Adams, who thought of the idea after the murders of Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos in 2014.
