These are the Top Defense Companies Putting an End to Deadly Mass Shootings

Palm Beach, FL – December 5, 2019 — The total number of deadly mass shootings in the U.S. just in 2019 comes is up to 385, as of December 1, according to Gun Violence Archive, as highlighted by CBS News.  “Before this year has even ended, 2019 has already had more mass shootings than any year since the research group started keeping track.” A recent shooting in New Orleans left 11 p3eople injured.  A shooting at Saugus High School in November 2019 left two teen students dead, and three wounded.  “The failure to protect our communities, families, and children is a waking nightmare that needs to end,” former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords said, as quoted by The Guardian.  Unfortunately, law enforcement has had little to no time to prepare or protect citizens ahead of these incidents often because of cost issues, and the availability of effective technology.  However, there are companies that are quickly moving to improve enforcement possibilities, saving lives in the process.  In fact, some of the top companies include Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX:PAT)(OTCQX:PTOTF), Axon Enterprise Inc. (NASDAQ:AAXN), ShotSpotter Inc. (NASDAQ:SSTI), Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO) and Johnson Controls International PLC (NYSE:JCI).

ShotSpotter Inc. (NASDAQ:SSTI) announced it has received unanimous approval for continued use of its gunshot detection technology by the City Council of Oakland and its Privacy Advisory Commission (PAC) after a rigorous review. The review was required under a 2018 ordinance that Oakland established in conjunction with the ACLU related to the acquisition and use of surveillance technology. Oakland’s ordinance is considered the strongest municipal surveillance oversight in the United States[1].

After a six-month review, the commission unanimously approved the continued use of ShotSpotter’s gunshot detection technology. Oakland has been a ShotSpotter customer for more than 10 years. “The Privacy Advisory Commission is here to protect the interests of Oakland’s citizens as technology continues to expand into more areas of people’s lives,” said Brian Hofer, Chair of Oakland’s Privacy Advisory Commission. “ShotSpotter has proven to be a thoughtful and transparent leader that does what it takes to mitigate privacy concerns. We recognize ShotSpotter as an important tool for public safety and determined that its benefits outweigh the very minimal risks to individual privacy.”
