|There is no feeling more frustrating than seeing disaster strike and knowing you could have done something about it.
That, unfortunately, is the exact feeling that the owners and managers of the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas might be waking up with in the mornings following last Sunday’s mass shooting.
You see, this could have been prevented.
Stephen Paddock and his 19 rifles, along with whatever else he’d brought along to wreak havoc, could have been halted in the lobby, before he’d had a chance to position himself 300 feet above an arena packed with more than 20,000 spectators.
What I’m talking about isn’t a law or a policy, but a technology — that already exists today — that could have alerted the proper authorities to the threat the moment it entered the hotel.Metal Detection Meets Super-Computing
This technology takes dangerous materials detection to the next level by implementing artificial intelligence to tell the difference between an innocuous hunk of metal, such as a coin or jewelry, and something that can cause damage, like a knife, a gun, or a bomb.
No longer is there any guesswork or secondary examinations involving lengthy pat-downs. When this machine spots something, there is no doubt, and the only thing left to do is approach the subject and begin questioning.
Sounds pretty good, but who wants to check into a hotel where you have to go through security screening every time you pass through the lobby?
The designers of this technology thought of that, too, and they produced a device that could be embedded in walls, floors, ceilings… anywhere convenient and out of sight, allowing for discreet scanning.
This technology has been under development for years now at a small firm headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia… This year, however, the company made its biggest leaps forward yet, as its products were finally cleared for commercial distribution in both Canada and the United States.
Approval from the Federal Communications Commission came just this past Monday, hours after the worst mass shooting in American history claimed the lives of 59 concertgoers.
Designed to Stop This Exact Threat
I’ve been following this company for more than a year now, and let me tell you, it was downright spooky reading the pieced-together scenario of how Stephen Paddock checked himself and his luggage into his hotel room, how employees had no idea of the arsenal he had in tow.
Understanding the capability of the smart metal detection technology, I immediately imagined how the scenario would have played out in a building that had installed the system.
Mr. Paddock would never have even made it past the concierge before being surrounded by guards trained and equipped to deal with him.
He would have been placed under arrest on the spot, his weapons confiscated.
The night of October 1, the Harvest Festival performers would have taken the stage, done their sets, and everyone would have gone home.
That would have been the difference.
Security measures like these are now available on the open market, and in the years to come, they will become standard equipment for public and private buildings classified as high-value targets for acts of terrorism.
In the end, you get what just about everyone wants: increased public safety with no encroachment at all on the Second Amendment right to bear arms.No Second Amendment Conflicts
Today, however, you cannot blame the management of Mandalay Bay or any other hotel in the world that hasn’t yet installed a passive smart metal detection system like this.
It’s too new to the market for them to have had a chance.
That will change, however… And, sadly, it’s events like this that will send demand for this technology through the roof.
In fact, shares of the company I’ve been alluding to are already up more than 50% since the shooting, with volume higher than ever.
Now cleared for widespread distribution in the U.S., the next few months may turn this as-of-yet unknown into an internationally recognized brand.
To get more information on this company, its product, and the road ahead, I’m offering you this one-time opportunity to access a report I compiled on the company and the technology.
It’s called “Security 2.0: Smart Weapons Detection Tech,” and it explains how it works and who’s behind it.
