  • I have an idea that I financially can’t create. With all the talk about gun control I was thinking of a locking device that goes around the trigger of any type of legal firearm. It well be sold with every handgun and everyone who has a legal firearm we be required to have one. The lock well be removable but once removed the local authority well be alerted. A speacal license well required for sports like hunting, archery..ect. the gun range well have sensors that will disable the device .
