    Like an ounce of prevention is worth a jigger of beer.

    When wierd science like this pops up, cooler heads usually decapitate it. But we still have to be ready to rally against measures that might incapacitate us, and counter measures that can turn whole populations into criminals. Remember 1776.

    Not sure how tongue-in-cheek you were being, and not slamming you, but....

    "Losing your pistol" would be much more likely to get you charged with criminal negligence(and it would be confiscated/destroyed). Lose-lose situation. There is no upside, aside from the ease-of-confiscation perspective.

    Fry the damn things with electricity or radiation (how long would a microwave oven take to fry one?). Or wrap them in metal.

    If they were imbedded in a gun, it would depend on the material surrounding it.

    But overall, a bad idea. Think of how often you set off the exit alarms when shopping after you buy something. Then pile on the abuse of the technology, you could end up in jail or dead because of a chip.

    No, no way, not happening, uh uh, nope, get back, Jack, etc!
    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?

    Nix! Nyet! Nein! Not a chance! Sounds like an idea from the Brady Bunch.

    I don't own a firearm that I can't strip down to the bare frame/receiver, etc. I'd pull that chip within minutes of bringing my new toy home. Put it in the microwave in a plastic bag immersed in water and cook the thing until it no longer functions. Either that, or I'd put alligator clips plugged into the wall on either end of the empty weapon and cook that chip.

    Car battery and a shop magnet, left on the frame for "a bit". If you google "EMP generator" you come up with interesting stuff, too .................

    I'm afraid most of the suggestions on how to circumvent the "chip" in your future firearm would also irrepairably damage your aluminum foil deflector beanie.

    The beanie can be replaced. Not trying to act like a conspirist ( is that even a word?), just not happy with the thought of stepping toward a more Orwellian world than we already live in.

    Let's see, we already microchip (that's a verb, now) our cats, dogs, kids, cars...why are we surprized? We are already under surveillance in the wash room, the intersection, the _mart, and the stadium. It's too late, we glow in the dark from all the radiation scans, and now we're about to get permanent weggies from airport puffers. Now I know why the cowboys spit at the sight of a stanly steamer.

    Here's some light reading on RFIDs.

    http://www.rfidjournal.com/

    http://www.rfidgazette.org/

    Proof that a reader has to be at a distance of 100 yds or less to read an RFID.

    http://www.rfidinc.com/

    Here is an anti-RFID site.

    http://www.spychips.com/

    Here is an article refuting the anti-RFID site.

    http://www.rfidnews.org/weblog/2005/...t-good-or-bad/

    A site that says RFIDs are not financially viable.

    When I played Air Force, the guidance system for the missile (Titan II) was coated in gold to prevent high altitude nuke blasts (very effect EMP generators!) from disabling the missile when it launched.
    Prior to that, the alternate command post (one missile site per squadron) monitored for EMPs, and disabled? missiles from launching through it;that was before my time... So the solution is simple; Gold plated pimp guns!
