Holder told Congress, “I mean, I think that one of the things 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 talked about how guns can be made more safe by making them either through fingerprint identification — the gun talks to a bracelet or something you might wear — how the gun can only be used by the person who is lawfully in possession of the weapon.”
That wouldn’t stop any gunman on a rampage. But an electronic bracelet would drive up the cost of firearms, make them less reliable, increase a potential crime victim’s response time and might prevent them from being able to respond at all, and might even give the government a means of monitoring gun owners within their own homes. Criminals will just disable the electronics.
So it’s very much in line with this administration’s overall aims of disarming all of us and keeping control of us.
