Thread: Are you guys asleep in Kentucky

  1. Are you guys asleep in Kentucky

    How in the world did you let this sneak through your senate? This is the first step to registering all guns with the feds.

    Are you going to get a recall going on the senators who voted for this, especially for the guy who wrote it?

    I was just reading about this. Being from Kansas, I don't have a dog in this fight, but if it can happen there, it can probably happen in other states too. And this isn't just new guns, it even goes as far back as antiques that are still active. It's true that Kentucky is a lib state, but it also has one of the highest number of gun owners.
    And as if this isn't bad enough, you have to pay "a small fee" to have it done. I wonder how many criminals will show up to have their guns implanted?

    Hell no! Good luck with that
    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.

    So is it completely signed into law, or is this just passing the first step? Can't believe Kentucky would sign off on this.

    See something like this happen in California, New York, or New Jersey wouldn't be all that surprising, but Kentucky?

    I still had trouble believing this and went back and read it again, plus comments on it in other forums. When you read about the author and then her comments that follow below the article, the truth of it becomes suspect. It sounds more like wishful thinking on her part. Also she seems to be confusing RFID and GPS. And personally I don't think either one would work like she claims. Simple enough to disable either.

    Exactly. Might as well try and happen in Texas. See how well that turns out

    I could see it happen in Texas.

    Your right. What this writer claims is not currently possible. RFID chips have a very limited range, usually a about one to three feet and require an external inductive field to power the chip to activate the transmitter. The article compares this weapon RFID to the OnStar system. That service uses an integrated GPS to find out it's location and a built in cell phone with data capabilities to transmit coordinates and receive instructions such as unlocking the door if you left your keys inside. For something like this to be practical engineers would need to package an internal power supply that would need to last for years because it would always need to be on, a cell phone w/antenna and a GPS w/antenna into a device about the size of a large pistol primer. Ain't gonna happen in our lifetimes.

    Hmmm, that has some possibilities. Does that mean if I have a FTF, a rep comes on and clears it remotely for me?
