View Full Version : And You Thought CA was Bad

I just visited the MA Statehouse website and a State Rep has introduced a bill to study the feasability of installing a GPS in firearms. I guess between CA microstamping and MA GPS, you'll be able to tell where some fool went for lunch before he shot someone.

The creativity of these clowns just amazes me.

Would putting a GPS chip (assuming it can be done) inside a gun be considered a restriction or infringement?

California is bad. The fact that someone else is worse (or is trying to be worse) doesn't change that. :p

Didn't MA enact, or attempt to a law that banned head targets for range practice? Now THAT'S bad.

That is ridiculous... What happens to firearms owned prior to this microstamping? Pistols rifles and shotguns getting it? When exactly does it go into effect?

I'm pretty sure they're already illegal in NY, maybe more states.

There's some patent holdup or some stuff. Long story short, it's not even remotely feasible in the foreseeable future. I wouldn't be concerned... :p

I think so, yes. Maybe the ACLU should take up the cause of shooting at paper targets as a free speech issue, as in, I despise this fellow represented on the target so much I wish to express my opinion by shooting it in the head. :)

GPS will likely never be small enough to effectively fit in a handgun ... maybe a rifle or shotgun.

I do know what would work, but I am patenting the application. Don't ask.

How in the heck would you power a GPS for the conceivable life of the gun?

Be careful what you say, as the ACLU may just take up a case that shooting at a black silhouette and white background is a racist violent act... you never really know

And how will this GPS continue to operate for the life of the gun? Must I change the batteries? What if I am out of batteries? Will it be a special battery? Will they hunt me down? Oh wait, they will not be able to find me if the GPS isn't working. This is a great idea and perfect example of why state budgets have an abundance of money to go around, lol.

I am so glad I already have most of the guns I want and that they were all stolen/lost at some point in the past, present, future.
