Only firearms with GPS locking mechanisms should be legal. All guns would be disabled in GPS locations such as schools, colleges, or malls.
To stop the school shootings.
How it works
Disable firearms (except those carried by law enforcement) when the firearm is in a GPS location identified as a school or college. This would need a GPS receiving chip with an algorithm that would disable the trigger (say) using a solenoid switch? if the GPS location of the firearm was within the coordinates specified as a school or college. I know that the execution of this idea is extremely complicated; but given the lack of political will to outright ban firearms or at least institute background checks, we have no recourse but to rely on technology.
