Wilkes, John M.


The shooting sports are a part of our nation's history and culture. Law abiding citizens have owned and fired their guns since the dawn of our nation. The politics of today, however, are a threat to that culture. The political issue is split down the middle with gun owners on one side and gun control advocates on the other. No real common ground has been found where a compromise can be made. In an effort to make a technological contribution to increasing the overall safety of the shooting sports, we have investigated and developed specifications for an electronic range safety system.
