According to FOX News, President Obama is expected to begin pushing smart gun technology soon. Smart gun technology changes the way guns operate by only allowing the gun to be fired by authorized people. According to FOX, the NRA is concerned about the new technology being mandated.

The National Rifle Association and other gun groups do not necessarily oppose the technology itself, but are concerned about any new mandates from the government requiring it. And law enforcement groups have voiced concerns about the reliability of the tech, and whether it can be trusted when needed most.

Politico quoted a source saying a mandate is not being considered at the moment – but the roll-out of the review could fuel those concerns. Earnest would not say Thursday whether the announcement would entail simply findings or some kind of requirement.

If purchasing a smart gun was an option, would you buy one?
