Accomplished Inventors Have Great Solutions. Politicians?
Futurist, Mark B. Barron believes the answer to many government social issues, such as gun violence, could be found in the minds of inventors, innovative thinkers, and futurists. Mark B. Barron believes he has the solution for the Gun issues in America. A safety advocate for over 30 years, Mark has invented and brought to market such safety products as the S-1 GARD for transit buses (which was featured on CNN Headline News), the newly implemented MDZ Shield for school buses, the dry line for tanker trailers carrying fuel, and the Chemo Cap, an alopecia-preventing cooling cap for cancer patients.
Barron is developing what he calls the new Hyperconnected Gun Safe which is designed to curb the nation’s gun violence epidemic by encouraging responsible gun ownership, while giving law enforcement a way to more easily enforce existing gun laws. While Barron favors gun control, he is also a pragmatist, explaining “the Second Amendment isn’t going anywhere. So we have to shift the focus from gun restrictions to putting the burden of responsibility on gun owners. The more guns people have, the more responsibility they have to have.” Says Mark B. Barron.
Hyperconnected Gun Safe is an affordable, mounted, armed, internet-connected gun clip which gun owners can secure and keep tabs on their firearms, from any location and this is how it works.
Each gun is assigned by serial number to a holder, whose electronic sensor lets the system know when that gun has been removed
- Features interior and exterior cameras, which can stream to a secure website
- If the safe is broken into, owner is alerted via SMS, email, etc., with make & model of missing firearm, and video of theft
- Can remind owner when gun has been removed for a set period of time
- Will make law enforcement firearm tracking databases more efficient
Barron’s Proposed Gun Safe Legislation is quite simple: If a person is found with an unregistered firearm in their possession or not reporting a missing firearm, they will be sentenced to 1 year of highway clean up and wear a jumpsuit with what crime they have committed on the back during the highway clean up.
Another simple solution is to have schools require parents to pay into a Gun Violence Prevention Trust Fund that will be offered as a reward for the perpetrators of any school shootings which are so prevalent today, giving incentive to kids involved in such heinous crimes. Too often nobody speaks up, because they have no reason too. Now, they will. Futurist Barron says, “We have to get back to the basic drives of human nature. Incentivize them to take action.”
Mark B. Barron is determined to see his vision come to life and has met with Piers Morgan from CNN to see that his new gun safe is shown on CNN for the world to see and how everyone can use it for their own safety. It is estimated that there are guns in half the homes in the United States. Although most of these guns are purchased for safety reasons, a firearm at home is much more likely to injure or kill a family member or friend rather than an intruder. Weapon storage is crucial, and if a gun is stored properly, it can make the difference between life and death. Tragedies occur on a daily basis involving unlocked firearms that are easily accessible to anyone including young children. Gun safety begins with you, the adult: be responsible or pay the consequences.
