Blog: NYPD To Begin Testing Gun Scanning Technology
In a move that has both civil liberties groups and Second Amendment supporters up in arms, the NYPD is going to begin testing technology which could scan people, from police vehicles, and detect concealed weapons.
How well the technology actually works, and how exactly it would be implemented are up in the air.
Proponents say it will make people safer and get more guns off the street. Opponents say it will open citizens up to illegal, remote searches that can be conducted on a whim.
