The Washington Free Beacon reports that Eric Holder is asking for $382.1 million in increased spending in 2014 for gun safety. President Obama wants $1.1. billion for the same reason. They want “common sense reforms” that will make it very expensive and extremely inconvenient to own a gun. They want an Orwellian gun tracking system that requires a gun owner to wear a bracelet that talks to the gun in case the gun gets lost or stolen.
Holder is looking to technology and RFID chips or GPS to track guns. It will have the effect of tracking gun owners as well.
Allegedly, this will keep guns out of the hands of criminals and other illegal gun owners, but it is the legal gun owners who would be forced to wear the tracking bracelets.
The first thing criminals will do is figure out how to get rid of the tracking chip.
This is a totalitarian’s idea of common sense laws.
This is what Holder wants to spend tax dollars on:
“I think that one of the things that we learned when we were trying to get passed those common sense reforms last year, Vice President Biden and I had a meeting with a group of technology people and we talked about how guns can be made more safe,” he said.
“By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or something that you might wear, how guns can be used only by the person who is lawfully in possession of the weapon.”
“It’s those kinds of things that I think we want to try to explore so that we can make sure that people have the ability to enjoy their Second Amendment rights, but at the same time decreasing the misuse of weapons that lead to the kinds of things that we see on a daily basis,” Holder said.
Some have even suggested that GPS tracking and RFID chips transmit the gun’s location to law enforcement agencies enabling them to monitor the gun in case it moves away from the tracker. There are safes that would require the tracking bracelet also.
When Eric Holder’s friends in Chicago gangs walk around with RFID bracelets, I will too.
The man who can’t figure out what went on in the Fast & Furious scandal wants to track legal gun owners.
Listen to what he said to House appropriations subcommittee:
