Proposed legislation that would prevent the use of blockchains to track guns in Arizona has failed, public records show.
Early last month, House Bill 2216 was introduced with the aim of prohibiting any system that "uses a shared ledger, distributed ledger or blockchain technology or similar form of technology or electronic database" from being used to keep track of firearms. The bill was put forward by state representative Paul Boyer.
While the bill itself does not stipulate how a particular gun might be overseen remotely, the idea is that hardware sensors could be used to catalog whenever it is fired or loaded.
