Implementation of blockchain technology would help address this specific issue as outlined here: https://t.co/eNMEck8jmn https://t.co/Mim44laAno
@LukeDashjr Was once told that the 1st Colt revolver was called the "Peacemaker" because it equalized power between physically stronger vs physically weaker individuals. Still, we can decrease gun violence and also protect constitutional rights: https://t.co/hh6UQU5Rws
Yes please! Using blockchain to prevent gun tragedies. #EndGunViolence https://t.co/K3dlRBm8v4 https://t.co/4ZYLPQ7JF2

In "A Blockchain Solution to Gun Control" I argue that if it's OK for the tech giants to track our online activities for the purpose of advertising, why shouldn't we use that same information to keep our kids safe? #guncontrol #Blockchain https://t.co/eNMEck8jmn
@ifyoucantwell The only bipartisan solution is to make guns safer. Check these articles out: https://t.co/oHRcxjG7n7 https://t.co/jgl4g9xczl https://t.co/E9hdrtUago #guncontrol #florida #schoolshooting #guns #blockchain

@ScottAdamsSays Thanks for addressing this important topic. Agree that we need to aggressively push pilot studies. . Also should apply proven techniques now and implement better gun supply chain tracking. https://t.co/eNMEck8jmn

@RealJamesWoods Either/Or thinking on this matter is too simplistic. Gun related deaths include both homicides AND suicides. Smart gun control measures that comply with the 2nd amendment can decrease both. I propose a #blockchain solution. https://t.co/7duWkkTIfK
@MsPhelps @chartgerink Don't forget, blockchain will solve all the world's problems.. ;) https://t.co/1afo4uPLPu
