James Bond meets Samuel Colt: Seeking to build a safer gun
DAYTONA BEACH - Jonathan Mossberg is among a group of pioneers looking to build a safer gun.
But unlike many others, he already was in the gun business.
Mossburg was born into a family known for its line of shotguns - guns treasured by police, hunters and the military.
Mossberg has been working to develop - and someday bring to the market - a firearm that can't be fired by the wrong person. It's intended to operate without fail in the hands of its owner.
Mossberg's iGun Technology Corporation relies on a simple piece of jewelry - a ring - that "talks" to a circuit board imbedded in a firearm to let it know the user is authorized.
The ring must be within centimeters of the gun for the gun to fire.
