The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is exploring a unique application of biometrics technologies: a handgun that can recognize its owner and only fire when being held by that person. This innovation could make it impossible for a criminal to steal an officer's firearm and use it against other people. Although this may seem like an uncommon situation, the October 22, 2002 news article attributes it to "one in six" killings of law enforcement agents. The technology would use fingerprints, grip recognition, or some other means of identifying the person holding the gun.
