The ATF revealed this year that after looking at the statistics of 300 major American cities, between 50% and 70% of the guns used in gun-related crimes were previously legally owned but then lost or stolen. This is a major revelation that I have been aware of for over 2 years. Legally owned, lost and stolen guns are the real pipeline of gun related crimes. Not the gun show loophole, 3D printed or “ghost guns” .
Gun Leash technology is the only patented anti-loss anti-theft technology that gun owners will actually use because it doesn’t track or report location of the gun and owner. It respects the privacy of the gun owner. It’s a simple proximity device that monitors the presence of the handgun.
Who’s most likely to be killed by one of these handguns? According to the CDC 2020 data African American men. For African Americans the gun homicide rate was 26.6 deaths per 100,000, a 39.5% increase over 2019. For white Americans, the rate was 2.2 per 100,000. So who stands to benefit from the launch of Gun Leash? Young black men of the inner cities! I’m calling on Black Leaders in America to support Gun Leash.
