As Fast and Furious Proved, DOJ Doesn’t Care About Tracking Guns
No, Eric Holder Didn?t Say Anything About ?Gun Tracking Bracelets.? As Fast and Furious Proved, DOJ Doesn?t Care About Tracking Guns



The Free Beacon is falsely reporting that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder advocated for exploring the use of “gun tracking bracelets” while testifying in front of Congress:

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.

As much as Holder deserves to be rotting in prison (he’s still in criminal and civil contempt of Congress for continuing to stonewall the House Oversight committee’s request for DOJ internal documentation regarding Operation Fast and Furious, but craven U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen refuses to imprison his boss), Holder simply did not say what the Free Beacon reporter claimed in her article, as the video segment of that conversation and the transcript of it (both below) clearly show.


“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.”

At no point during the conversation did Holder mention “gun tracking bracelets.” He was instead likely referring to “smart gun” technologies like the RFID technology used in the technological train-wreck that is the Armatix iP1 pistol/iW1 watch combination.



I’ve discussed in the past that the Armatix iP1/iW1 combination is a dangeriously unreliable, imminently-hackable, seriously under-powered and prohibitively expensive gimmick.

I’ve also made the argument that imposing an $1,800 pistol/watch combo upon the citizenry by executive mandate or legislation is inherently racist as the equivalent of a poll tax, designed to economically disenfranchise those most likely to live in high-crime-rate neighborhoods, who are disproportionately minorities.

But for all the iP1/iW1 combination’s faults, I’ve seen nothing that hints that it is designed as a tracking device, nor did the Attorney General mentioned anything during the video-taped segment above indicating that he is interested in tracking guns.

If anything, Operation Fast and Furious, Gunwalker and the various other gun-smuggling plots (up to ten in five cities) of the Department of Justice prove that the Obama Administration has no interest in tracking guns … even after hundreds of civilians and a number of police officers in two nations die as a result. - Bob Owens

Any such bracelet/gun combo needs electronics and batteries to function.

How many of us currently own any gun that requires electronics and batteries to function (not the sights, the gun itself)? This would require a complete redesign of all firearms, incorporating needless technology, complexity and, of course, cost. And, of course, only those guns deemed appropriate for citizen use by the government would be allowed to have such technology... and only those guns having such technology could be sold to citizens.

You can count on the military, police and bodyguards of liberal politicians and entertainment stars to have the old, reliable tech-free guns. You could also bank on a underground supply of home-shop made, tech-free, firearms of all kinds.

And what would be done with the countless millions of tech-free guns already in existence? Would we have 90 days to turn in our guns or be considered felons? Tell me... how well is that going in Connecticut?

I don't see how you hear him say "the gun talks to a bracelet or something that you might wear" and that doesn't equate to gun tracking bracelets. You can't tell me the bracelets won't be tracked and by design they are tied to a gun which means gun tracking bracelets. Hell it wouldn't surprise me if the bracelets come with a satellite tracking chip so they always know where you and the gun are. The current administration is doing everything they can to take our guns away and are totally disregarding the second amendment and how anybody can deny that is beyond me. This is just an example of how a conservative news source view things compared to a liberal news source views things. No matter how you spin it they are after our guns and we better all be ready to fight to keep them.

I dont think the 4000 mil grade firearms he gave to the drug cartels need those brackets.

The rest of us dont

Well they have those NEST smoke detectors that had some problems so they turned off
the problematic feature remotely!
They could probably do the same thing if they had a watch or a bracelet.

Never trust the Govt with your rights as they will trample all over them!

How about a bracelet jamer that a criminal could take with them? Or just carry an axe and when he sees your bracelet he hits you over the head, cuts your hand off and takes the gun and the bracelet? Good plan Mr. Holder. You bet your life first!
