Smart guns could soon become available in the United States.
During the past 20 years, the idea of smart guns, which can only be fired by verified users, has been developed.
But there have been no reliable results so far.
Some American gun manufacturers have begun testing personal smart guns.
They say the guns may soon be available to consumers in the United States.
Supporters say the weapons can reduce suicides, render lost or stolen goods useless and protect security personnel.
However, critics argue that smart weapons are too risky for people trying to protect their homes during a crisis.
So what does that mean for the thorny issue of gun control in the United States?
