Sen. Markey to Introduce 'Smart Gun' Bill

A Democratic senator wants to ensure that handguns sold in the United States can be operated only by “authorized” users.

Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts plans to introduce a bill that would require new handguns be outfitted with personalization technology within two years and that older guns be retrofitted within three years so that the firearms won’t work for unauthorized users. The bill includes exemptions for antique guns as well as military arms.
