Discussion Starter #1
Attorney General Eric Holder said on Friday that gun tracking bracelets are something the Justice Department (DOJ) wants to “explore” as part of its gun control efforts.


When discussing gun violence prevention programs within the DOJ, Holder told a House appropriations subcommittee that his agency is looking into technological innovations.



“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.


The Justice Department has requested $382.1 million in increased spending for its fiscal year 2014 budget for “gun safety.”


Included in the proposal is $2 million for “Gun Safety Technology” grants, which would award prizes for technologies that are “proven to be reliable and effective.”


President Barack Obama’s budget proposal also calls for $1.1 billion to “protect Americans from gun violence—including $182 million to support the president’s ‘Now is the Time’ gun safety initiative.”


A recent innovation allows a gun owner to only unlock a safe with a fingerprint scan and an “RFID-equipped bracelet.”


Others have suggested manufacturing GPS tracking and RFID chips into every gun. RFID chips transmit location data and are used by law enforcement agencies to send automatic alerts if a weapon moves away from the tracker, indicating that the gun is lost or stolen.

Pseudo science, like micro stamping. California passed micro stamping and beside not doing anything to reduce crime (file anyone?) it raises the cost of the weapon. New semi auto pistols must have this technology, so most makers will not sell new models here.

I think this is what they really intended.

I can tell you what to do with a tracking bracelet Holder. Though it might take a whole production run to fill that void between your fart cushions.

The mishandeling of our tax dollars has been out of control for quite some time. I'm tired of seeing U.S. Tax money flushed down the toilet.

Complete idiots! Do they think the bad guys give a rats ass about wearing a bracelet, hell you can't keep them on them while on house arrest, let alone carrying a gun! Jesus, how stupid are the people running our country? And I wouldn't wear one if it cost me my life in a gun fight to protect my civil rights!

The House appropriations subcommittee that was listening to this drivel should de-fund the DOJ. It's obvious the DOJ is wasting their time on hair brained ideas not perusing any sort of justice.

Correct me if I'm wrong -- is this not yet another run on gun registration?

also so correct me if I am wrong-- didn't hitler make the Jews wear a Star of David prior to segration/seizing their property/ increasing their taxes?

This is sounds like to me the separating from the herd. Kill the sheep dog, before you steal the sheep.

Worse. Its owner registration. Like being on house arrest and having to wear a tracking bracelet.

You can count me the hell out. Not no but hell no. I'm with bravo on this.
