Mayor Reed pushes ‘smart gun’ technologies with manufacturers
Reed and several other mayors across the country have signed their names to the letter, WSB-TV reports.
“Local, state and other governmental entities in the United States are conducting reviews of their firearms procurement practices to ensure that future purchases of firearms achieve the maximum benefit to taxpayers in terms of public safety,” the letter reads in part.
“As part of this process, these jurisdictions are requesting information from companies that produce firearms suitable for use by public-sector agencies.”
Apart from the inquiry into “smart gun” technology, the letter asks gun manufacturers to describe their standards and criteria for authorized dealers, its response when one of its weapons is determined to have been used in a crime, and whether the manufacturers would be interested in working with local governments and law enforcement agencies to set up networks of authorized dealers.
