The task force shall examine, among other issues: how current firearm safety features compare to “smart gun” technology, whereby a firearm enables only an authorized user to fire the weapon; the availability, readiness and effectiveness of “smart gun” technology; and the costs, benefits and drawbacks of implementing “smart gun” technology in the commonwealth.

SECTION XXXX. Members of the task force shall be named and the task force shall commence its work within 60 days of the effective date of this act. The task force shall report to the general court the results of its study by filing the same with the clerks of the senate and the house of representatives and the house and senate chairs of the joint committee on public safety and homeland security not more than 365 days after the effective date of this act”.
