What does the gun have to do with Blockchain?
Gun safety rules and practice recommendations are intended to avoid accidental discharge or negligent discharge, or the consequences of firearm malfunctions.
Their purpose is to eliminate or minimize the risks of unintentional death, injury or property damage caused by improper possession, storage or handling of firearms.
There were 47,000 unintentional firearm deaths worldwide in 2013.
in the event of a firearm discharging (firing) at a time not intended by the user.
An unintended discharge may be produced by an incompatibility between firearm design and usages, such as the phenomenon of cooking off around in a closed-bolt machine gun, a mechanical malfunction as in the case of slamfire in an automatic weapon, user induced due to training issues or negligence, or a simple accident.
The phenomenon has also been defined in the scientific literature as an activation of the trigger mechanism that results in an unplanned discharge that is outside of the firearm’s prescribed use.
Where prescribed use refers to departmental policies and laws related to the operation of firearms (O’Neill, 2018).

Purpose of the review Gun safety
the purpose is to eliminate or minimize the risks of unintentional death, injury or property damage caused by improper possession, storage or handling of firearms.
Gun safety in the sense it to exist is as follows:
Basic knowledge of how a firearm works.
Skill to use a firearm in a situation where it is necessary.
Knowledge of how to maintain firearms.
An understanding that guns are tools that require human interaction to be used at all.
Knowledge of how to :
- act when a firearm is found in an unsafe location and unattended.
- disable a firearm when it is found unattended in an unsafe location.
- safely store a firearm.
- safely operate a firearm.
- react when you are on the business end.
purchase one legally and what makes a firearm and it’s user legal. (the latter part is location dependent.)
Why do we need it? Gun safety is important to maintaining a healthy respect for a tool that is capable of helping you do great goods and disastrous misdeeds.
It’s important to have gun safety to teach others that there is nothing to fear when it comes to arms.
It’s very important to be able to understand the difference between myth and reality such as how the AK-47 is really not that great of a firearm no matter how you paint it. Blame that on COD.
It’s important to know who is legally allowed to possess firearms i.e. not a prohibited person.
Problems of gun safety
There are many types of research about problems of gun safety. it’s enough you search on google that knows tragedy!
The federal database used to conduct background checks is not foolproof — far from it.
In 2017, it was reported that the FBI’s background-check system was missing millions of instances of criminal convictions, mental illness, and other non-qualifiers that would have barred certain individuals from attaining a firearm.
Fundamental, infrastructural flaws in the database and methods for interagency sharing have been cited as the reason for such breakdowns, as fixing them would be both time-consuming and costly. While measures have been taken in hindsight — such as the 4,000 weapons seized late last year — foretelling when a firearm in the wrong hands will result in tragedy is impossible, and retroactive solutions are often too little, too late.
How blockchain help to gun safety?
Blockchain would essentially make up a database to track the manufacture, transfer, and purchase of guns, Heston proposes. … Every gun owner would have what Heston calls an “electronic gun safe.”
This wouldn’t be a real, physically safety, but a digital one, comparable to a crypto owner’s digital wallet.
a blockchain-powered electronic gun safe, which would store and track information of individuals who own or plan to purchase firearms.
When a person sells a gun to another person, meaning that the gun is moved from one safe to another, the transaction would be recorded on a blockchain that’s immune to hacking and editing.
Such measures could fix loopholes in the FBI’s existing background check system.
Per the federal agency’s own estimate in 2017, the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) used to screen firearm purchasers missed thousands of instances of criminal record, mental illness and other non-qualifiers that would have barred certain individuals from buying a gun.
The FBI cited voluntary submissions and differing state laws on criminal and mental health adjudications as to the main challenges in identifying non-qualifiers.
These issues could be resolved if there was a one-stop-for-all database that accurately tracks the information of every gun purchaser in the U.S.
Such a database could also help gun owners ensure safe ownership while retaining privacy.
Blockchain allows gun owners to connect all that gun usage information to third-party services that tell them how to abide by relevant laws while not having to worry about this information being seen by anyone, Duane Jacobsen, CEO of Blocksafe, an Atlanta-based company that makes blockchain applications for firearms tracking, told Observer.
Blockchain tech provides privacy, security and a reliable database that researchers can use to figure out workable improvements to our current dysfunctional and dangerous system. Researchers need a good database to start treating this as a public health issue.
Indeed Blockchain is needed in all sciences!
