DOJ requesting $2 million for Gun Safety Technology grants
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.
Its 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 Obamas budget proposal also calls for $1.1 billion to protect Americans from gun violenceincluding $182 million to support the presidents 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.
American People: the only thing that needs to be traced is Holder and his boss.

The short Youtube vid. of Holder stating you should be fingerprinted and wear bracelet. Enjoy!
Before all is said and done the truth may come out, and then those two will end up in “bracelets” of their own.
How can I argue with “common sense”.
Put it on all police and DHS guns.
Go ahead, I’m waiting.
I am not sure who wrote their playbook but they really stick to it.
They propose the most draconian controls one could think of and always add “common sense” to it’s description.
ATF will be exempt....cough...cough...
They already track keyboards and stuff
I have a Tyrant Tracking Bracelet he can try out.....
What happens to “conceal carry” when you are displaying a bracelet?
Isn’t this another case of socialists imagining a technology into being? Like competitive Wind & Solar power? Electric cars that have a range longer than 1 hour? Cars that magically will get 70 MPG because the feds say so?
Putting electronics into a firearm is bound to make that firearm less reliable, and drive up the value of pre-electronic firearms.
Next will be stars on our shirts...
Let me guess. Holder wants to use these Gun Tracking Bracelets to reduce crime in cities like Chicago and prevent young black teens from killing each other en masse.
Whoo Wee. I crack myself up! I really do. (Picking myself up off the floor after rofl)
Truth is; Holder will require these for us dangerous Tea Party Creepy Ass Crackers.
From 1995 Holder approves of...
Eric Holder “We Must Brainwash People Against Guns”
FU in the Anus.
CPUSA, back in the days of Feliks Dzherzhinsky. They're like cyborgs, they never stop. Looks like it'll take another world war, this one with nuclear weapons, to stop them at last. We never went in there after 1991 and sorted them out the way we did the Nazis. (There was an 18-month guerrilla war, after the German surrender, with SS "Werewolf" forces that sometimes reached armored-regiment levels. The "Werewolf" formations were either wiped out or dispersed by the Third Army and the Red Army. They were mostly in Bavaria.
What a dingbat idea.

And so the ATF can send out a signal to disable the weapon, while its raid troops swoop down on the guy and murder him for "resisting arrest". Yeah, yeah, we get it, Barky .... Valerie .... Eric .... and the rest of you Commie scum.
