In the wake of controversial police shootings, gimmicks designed to mitigate liability or disaster tend to come out of the woodwork. From a giant, less-lethal orange ball at the end of a pistol to body cameras, some items make more sense than others.
Enter the Gun Shield camera, a weapon rail-mounted camera aimed to show the point of view (POV) of an officer’s service pistol.
The camera, which is activated every time an officer un-holsters, notifies nearby officers and sends video footage.
According to WSB-TV, inventor Max Kramer says the device could save lives.
However, critics have pointed out that not only will the gun camera simply perform the same role as the body camera, it eliminates the ability to mount a light to one’s pistol.
