This gun will help prevent criminal acts and careless mistakes.

When you buy the gun, you must fill out an identification card and register your fingerprints. This information is stored in the gun's memory chip. To operate the gun, you must place your thumb over a scanner on the handle of the gun before you can shoot it.

If someone else tries to operate the gun, and the fingerprints don't match, it will lock and not shoot.

Created by young inventors Mike Snead, Tara Lynch, Kati Merrick, Jami Ralph, Rhonda McDowell, Patti Ann Betts, Jenna Tingle, Traci Peters, April Higgins, John Cahall
