    RFID chips and CCW

    Ladies and Gents,

    Thought you mght be interested in this article: http://mensnewsdaily.com/blog/longenecker/

    Just curious what you think of the idea of having an RFID chip installed in your carry weapon (or any of your weapons, for that matter). What about having a chip installed in your CCW license?

    Oh, absolutely! That way when NOLA SO and PD are in a position to return favors to the CHP, etc., they can just activate "active emissions", instead of using those unreliable roadblocks and FTF contacts. :chairshot

    (Don't tell me these won't have active/passive transmitting- it's too easy to pass up.)

    On a positive note it will be simpler for stores to catch you on the way in with their scanning device and being polite ask you to leave. Kinda a tounge in cheek comment but there may be positive things about having the chip embedded for expensive items. If they get lost and returned to a PD maybe it will get back to the owener.
    I can see some good uses for the chip but mostly they(gov) will dream up a way to use it for a bad purpose.

    May the splinters never point the wrong way.

    10% useful - 90% bad news, IMO.

    There is so much scope for abuse and expansion. ''Well, you didn't mind the first chip"! ''It's in your best interests''.

    If it were possible to be selective and have personal control over when or if the darned thing was active/operative then just maybe.

    Hmmm - wonder what a local high dose EMP would do to a mini chip ... hmmmm.!

    In my weapon, NFW.

    In my CCW license? Well it's technically the property of the state, and they can put whatever they want on it, but doesn't mean that I won't carry it inside a lead foil pouch.

    I will pass on the chip. But a hole lot of sheeple will be more than happy to give up there rights and privacy so that Big Brother can take better care of them. I am sure this will have to be fought out in the courts to prevent this.

    One thing strikes me - like with weaponry and its technology.

    To most measures will come counter-measures!

    New technology is fine. Won't buy any firearm that has a damn Lo-Jack chip in it. My old, non-chipped pistols are fine for defense.
