News Summary: Tech could let users disable guns

The Associated Press

REMOTE STOP: A high-tech startup is wading into the gun control debate with a wireless controller that would allow gun owners to know when their weapon is being moved — and disable it remotely.

THE DEMONSTRATION: The technology, but not an actual gun, was slated to be demonstrated Tuesday at a wireless technology conference in Las Vegas.

HOW IT WORKS: The new Yardarm Technologies LLC system would trigger an alarm on an owner's cellphone if a gun is moved, and the owner could then hit a button to activate the safety and disable the weapon.
