TriggerSmart Childproof user unique RFID gun technology

Hello Jessica,


Happy New Year and well done on your achievements. I have an idea where you can continue the good work with a good start to 2013. TriggerSmart has been invited to participate with the Biden commission and put forward our proposals on Child proof smart gun technology . Would NY Tech or individual members consider supporting our efforts. I enclose below a letter I have received from Mitch Barker, Executive Director WA Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs. Also I have included the letter we received from VP Biden’s office and some more info on TriggerSmart


The more letters like this I can get will bolster our submission and will help prevent massacres such as Newtown.


Mr. Vice President,


The recent tragic shootings in Connecticut are just another chapter of what seems like an unending horror story being told in our country.  I never had to deal with such a horrifying event in my thirty plus years of law enforcement but I have seen my share of heart wrenching tragedies brought about by accidental or intentional misuse of firearms.  I applaud you, and the President, for seizing this time to try to make a meaningful difference as we move forward.


As stated by the president, no one thing is the answer.  However, many things may move us toward a safer country.  Changes are needed in our laws, education, culture, and technology to begin this process.  In the area of technology, I have been impressed with my initial reviews of the TriggerSmart system.  This general concept has been looked at for years and has gone in fits and starts but has never achieved full implementation.  The various technologies have never been brought to fruition and so the concept has languished.  I have corresponded recently with one of the principals of TriggerSmart and suggest that they be brought into the conversation at an early stage.


If this technology can be brought to the market place in a coordinated manner, I believe it will be a key element in saving lives that otherwise would be lost to gun accidents or criminal violence.  I would encourage public funding of the research, development, and planned marketing of technology such as TriggerSmart.  The ideas of creative entrepreneurs, and our support for them, should not be limited to the arena of information technology.  Base support for such enterprises are essential in reducing gun deaths in our nation.

Subject: Following Up to Newtown: A Call for Ideas


In the days since the tragedy in Newtown, Americans from all over the country have called for action to deter mass shootings and reduce gun violence.


Recently, the President asked Vice President Biden to lead a new initiative and identify concrete proposals for real reform by January.  As part of that process, the Vice President will meet with stakeholders from across the spectrum. 


The Vice President and Cabinet have answered the President’s call to continue this important conversation, and want to hear from organizations and experts across the country. If you and your organization have policy proposals for the Administration to consider, please submit your written proposals to [address removed] by January 5th.  


As the President has said, "If we're going to change things, it’s going to take a wave of Americans – mothers and fathers, daughters and sons, pastors, law enforcement, mental health professionals, and gun owners – standing up and saying ‘enough’ on behalf of our kids."  We encourage you to have an active conversation with your members and colleagues as part of this process and send us their feedback as well.   


Have a happy and safe new year.


Thank you,

The Office of the Vice President




As you can see from the letter above TriggerSmart has been invited by the office of VP Biden to submit a proposal regarding our Childproof gun technology before January 5th. I hope you don’t think I am too cheeky but would you consider providing a letter of support to include in our submission that your organization is in favor of exploring the benefits of TriggerSmart technology ( developed by Georgia Tech Atlanta) and that it will save lives lost due to accidental discharge that causes 12,000 injuries and approximately 800 deaths annually in the USA. Also 12,000 homicides in the USA each year.


TriggerSmart have developed and patented a childproof smart gun using RFID. TriggerSmart user unique guns could help prevent many of the massacres in recent times in the USA in particular the Newtown tragedy.

Firstly, if Mrs Lanza had installed smart gun technology in her guns then her son would not have been able to fire the guns without the authorization tag.

Secondly, TriggerSmart RFID technology could prevent a safe zone around the school so that any unauthorized guns coming into the safe zone would be immediately disabled.


We have a demo available on the following youtube link.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Happy New Year NY Tech Meetup Community!


Over the past few days, I’ve been thinking a lot about what our growing tech community accomplished in 2012. Many of you found success individually and with your companies, launching new products, acquiring new users and clients, securing funding, and landing significant acquisition deals. We are proud that the stage at our monthly meetup serves as a place to help you showcase the great things that you build.


We also had an amazing year together – as a community.


We grew by almost 10,000 members.


We showed up in force in front of our Senators’ offices last January, where almost 2,000 of you stood together to ask Congress to reconsider SOPA and PIPA and maintain an open Internet. It had an impact. The bills were taken out of consideration and it changed out dialogue with our elected officials. Twitter included it in their year in review ( Google included it in their year in review ad that aired New Year’s Eve on major networks – we’re at :52 seconds in ( And GOOD mentioned it in their first item on their list of Ten Moments of 2012 That Will Affect the Next 50 Years (  


We stepped into action as soon as Hurricane Sandy hit, with over 900 of you volunteering your time and technical skills to assist the government and relief agencies with recovery efforts and to help businesses get back on their feet. You came together for a hackathon that got FEMA, The American Red Cross, United Way, NYCEDC, Occupy Sandy and many others all in the same room to talk about what we can do better, and then you built tools to help us get there.


We came together to help diversify the tech industry, building and supporting programs for women in technology and LGBT entrepreneurs.


We celebrated and shared New York tech and everything that makes New York an amazing place to live and work at Made in NY: Austin at SXSW.


Our Made in NY list of companies coded in NY grew to almost 500.


And we’re just getting started.


Thank you for everything that you do to make this community what it is.


Here’s to you – the NY tech community – and here’s to an amazing 2013.




(and Nate and the entire NYTM team)
