WASHINGTON, D.C.– Eric Holder’s recent statements on gun safety measures reveal some telling things about the Attorney General. Instead of placing electronic bracelets on people who actually commit a crime, Holder announced during a House appropriations subcommittee that he’d like to invest tax payer money in electronic bracelets for gun owners.
“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.
Unfortunately for Holder, no such technology exists yet. In order to see his Orwellian dreams come to fruition, the DOJ is asking for $382.1 million in funding for “gun safety.” Part of that money would be used as a cash incentive to encourage inventors to develop “Gun Safety Technology.” The $2 million in grants would award prizes for technologies that are “proven to be reliable and effective.”
One wonders if this new “common sense” technology will be made available to the Mexican drug cartels the next time Holder and friends deliver them guns.
