I very much focused on continuing to find the cracks on the backend of the firearms system. Whether it's with the background check, purchasing process, or available methods of purchase, I realized that no matter what I try to solve, these problems are all related to how the system works, as the whole system doesn't have an active method of intervention.
As I talked to my peers, I very much began to fine tune my research on that. Where in the system are there gaps?
This was a very difficult process, as this is the time my group began to really start working individually in figuring out what we want to focus on as our problem and how we want to solve it. This is the first time I began thinking that a better tracking system would help.
I started looking into open source codes to see how the open source system could be applied to firearms tracking, like Adeona. At this point, I was mostly worried about how the audience who were partially libertarian would react to any type of governmental tracking. However, I did not define an audience yet, so it was still hard to visualize exactly how the technology would work.
