Ahh, Kentucky

Postby macdaddy » Sun Sep 15, 2013 8:02 am

The Kentucky State legislature is pushing through a bill that would require residents of Winchester, Kentucky to have RFID chips placed in all of their guns; jail for those who resist.

Legislators see this for what it is (a baby step) and hope that it will go nation wide. Here it comes folks. A computer chip - perfect for confiscation anywhere.

Kentuckians - email, call, anything!!! Stop this! :mad:

This is from a satirical news source, try and google the bill, there's no info on it.

read your state constitution. Unless federal law usurps the right to possess a firearm, the state shall make no law to infringe on the rights of a person to own a firearm to protect themselves. You aren't guaranteed the right to conceal carry, but the state constitution guarantees the right for open carry.

I hardly consider Lew Rockwell's site to be "satirical."

Google frequently quashes gun control/pro-gun news in order to keep us in the dark. This is no straw man.

It was originally from "the national" which is just like "The Onion".
Sooo where's the NRA on this?
Not to mention the fact that they are equating RFID with GPS, the 2 are not the same. RFID is a system that holds info to transfer it remotely and must be in close proximity to the receiver. A GPS is uses a satellite and needs a battery to power it.

Yeah, macdaddy, RFID can't be "tracked", it's useless outside of several feet. All RFID does is transmit a simple string of code when scanned by a receiver at very close range. So, when Lew's article says "when confiscation day comes, the government will know where every gun is" it's simply not true.

Also, the article states that the chip which will be placed on the guns will be battery powered. RFID doesn't use batteries, so that's strike two.

I'm not believing this one.

I think if this is for real, Rand Paul would be all over the TV talking about it.

Yes I realize he is a US Sen, not state, but I don't think he would let it get by without notice.

They must be using the new nano tramsmitters with super long battery life. Don't you know anything? :hammer: :hammer: :hammer:
In a free society, it is not the obligation of the citizen to prove to the government that he is a good person. It is the obligation of the government to prove to the rest of the citizenry that the citizen is a bad person, with probable cause.
