I've talked about biometrics before on our debate group. The trouble people seem to have with it is that they don't believe the government is there yet with a cyber-tamper-proof centralized database, and it would have to be administered at a state level. Then there can be some technical issues with biometrics...

Here's an interesting concept though (at least I think so). What if we used fingerprint/handprint or even voice activated sensors on law enforcement officers' weapons? That may be a stupid idea based on temporal concerns in life-or-death situations. On the other hand it is an added layer of security.
