An Arizona-based tech company believes that they may have solved the problem of future school shootings with a high-tech new tool:
This could be the perfect solution for when people are dying and police can’t or won’t (in the case of Uvalde) offer assistance.
Obviously, we’re not looking for armed drones to be patrolling the streets and shooting at pedestrians on the regular.
However, if we’re talking about extreme scenarios where the options are to have children die or at least TRY an unconventional method of defense, I know which option I’m going to pick.
Rick Smith, founder and CEO of body camera and Taser-making company Axon, believes his company could have helped save some lives in Uvalde.
“We need different, better solutions, including ones that leverage technology to protect our schools, teachers and students,” Smith said.
Smith’s company builds both tasers and drones for America’s military, and is looking to crossbreed those two technologies to greatly reduce how far school shooters can get before being incapacitated.
“Non-lethal drones can be installed in schools and other venues and play the same role that sprinklers and other fire suppression tools do for firefighters: Preventing a catastrophic event, or at least mitigating its worst effects.”
Smith’s potential solution comes as a result of trying to figure out why law enforcement officers in Uvalde allowed the shooting to carry on for far too long.
