Default Blockchained Guns, Ammo, AI, IOT, 5G and you

Funny, I thought someone would've brought this up before. Let's talk about blockchained guns, ammo, components, and accessories. Let's talk about the internet of things enabled by the upcoming 5G revolution. Let's talk about the Global Brain and singularity. Let's talk about crypto currency and digital money and the eventual discontinuation of cash. Let's talk about the certainty of a unquestioning android police and military wielded by the few.

Imagine a world where every round, every primer, every brass case, every bullet has a printed or 'grown' microchip and is assigned a digital representation on a ledger. In this brave new world, this ledger's ownership changes from point of sale to point of sale (i.e manufacturer to distributor, distributor to jobber, jobber to retail sale).

What are the implications of a bullet's ownership quantitatively being tied back to you?

How will the ever present eyes of the artificially intenlligent Global Brain affect the pursuit of happiness in the USA? How will Millenials, the largest group in the USA by population, embrace or discard their God given rights?

There's a reason they call it dope, but you be you.

And here I thought nothing good ever happens that late at night...
There is nothing so tragic as the loss of a child. Parents and teachers have the right to protect them. They should also have the ability. 911 isn’t enough.

I have no idea what this blockchain thing is. I thought it was some way to secure crypto currencies from government prying eyes. Apparently it’s skynet or something.

But considering I won’t even buy a gun with an lci, I’m certainly not going to buy some chipped gun. The thing with these scenarios is that by the time it gets that far, it never gets that far. Because once we’re heading there then it never gets there. You think 60-70million people are just gonna say go ahead and chip me and my guns. I imagine kalifornia subjects will do so happily. But by then there won’t be any gun owners left in this state.

They're not liberals, they're leftists. Please don't use the former for the latter. Liberals are Locke, Jefferson, Burke, Hayek. Leftists are progressives, Prussian state-socialists, fascists. Liberals stand against the state and unequivocally support liberty. Leftists support state tyranny.

Blockchain is just a way to ensure things are done securely. It uses tracking and compliance checks to ensure the registers have not been tampered with. For example they could use it to ensure controlled substances get to the right places without records being changed.
