Tierney: Technology can curb accidental deaths from guns

Congressman, city leaders discuss prevention, protection


Tierney said he plans to introduce legislation in Congress this week that seeks to use modern technology such as palm print recognition to prevent accidental gun injuries in the future.

“Legislation has been filed for 20 years now,” Tierney said. “But there has been a renewed interest in it since Newtown (Connecticut) and Aurora (Colorado) and the other incidents that happened. Since the legislation is there, we want to give our constituents the opportunity to speak out on the issue.”
