Technology Instantly Tracks the Sound of Gunfire

It took a civilian police officer roughly four minutes to respond to calls from Fort Hood last Thursday. There may be a way to get police on the scene even faster.

A new software can detect the sound of a gun shot within one second of a trigger being pulled. And that's not all it does. Tech expert Mario Armstrong drops in on the CNN Newsroom with a little show and tell.

    Just another example of why we could bring ALL our military home!
    My understanding is that this technology is currently being used by our military. We have the equipment to "strike targets of opportunity" at any time. I would rather loose a reaper or gobal hawk than one soldier!
