It wasn’t that long ago that a fingerprint scanner was something you saw a billionaire in a movie use to access a secret vault. These days, you see them all over the place, and most modern phones even have them built-in just to unlock the screen. But, what if you had to use a fingerprint scanner to use a gun?
