A distributed registry managed through blockchain-based technologies offers several opportunities to make the arms sales market safer.

 

Public registries linked via blockchains would be more difficult to tamper with and could prevent candidates deemed unfit to buy weapons or obtain a firearm.

 

Furthermore, by linking the medical records to the names of the owners of the weapons, it would be possible to warn the police of the fact that, for example, a person who holds (lawfully) a weapon has suffered an event (for example a shelter coatto) which could lead to a greater inclination to perform violent acts.

 

The startup Blocksafe is focusing on creating a blockchain-based system that would allow users to keep track of the position of their guns in the world, alerting them if it turns out that that weapon fired recently.
