Really, this solves more then this - It puts in place a way to prevent those guns from falling into criminals hands. Given that people will resale guns, gun manufactures would have to have systems in place to reset the security features on the guns. With this, if a gun is used in a crime and recovered then the police would easily know the person who used it, and if applicable, the person who sold it to the criminal. And really, given that it's a crime for a person to, knowingly or unknowingly, purchase stolen items it really should be a crime for a person to, knowingly or unknowingly, sell a gun to a person who intends to use it for crime.

The technologies for personalized guns are in existence - fingerprint scanners and voice recognition are the basics although more sophisticated systems could be used.
This is perhaps one of the most agreeable gun control measures I have ever seen. Reminds me of the guns used in License to Kill and Skyfall where the gun would only fire if it was in the Bond's hands. They need to get on this.
