http://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2016...r-gun-control-measures-at-white-house-summit/ Vice President Biden gave a speech this week to a group of Governors in an unpublicized meeting. Biden admitted failure in the White House effort to pass comprehensive gun control and urged the governors to act on the state level. He blamed the failure on a dysfunctional congress that has failed in its duty to gut the second amendment. (sarcasm mine) In his speech Biden was advocating for a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines. He also set forth a plan for government financing of programs to provide police departments with personal “smart guns” that do not become functional until a fingerprint is scanned. Police departments have not been open to the smart gun scan technology deeming it unreliable. If an officer’s hand is gloved or covered with mud or the battery is dead or the electronics malfunction the officer is left weaponless except for his backup gun which will undoubtedly not be a smart gun. Biden, while praising the “reasonableness” of smart guns failed to mention these problems. He also failed to mention the inflated price of the smart gun. The main reason the plan calls for government grants to police departments for the purchase of the guns is the purchase price. The smart gun technology will double or triple the price of a firearm. Obama this week posted on Facebook, “As long as we’ve got the technology to prevent a criminal from stealing and using your smartphone, then we should be able to prevent the wrong person from pulling a trigger on a gun,” A “smart gun” report was released by the Whitehouse Friday that stated various Federal agencies were working with law enforcement to implement the use of the smart gun. This is undoubtedly the last Obama push to initiate back door gun control. How many people will pay $2000 for a handgun. Meanwhile, the gun manufacturers who see huge profits in arming police departments with smart guns are willing and ready to manufacture the guns and the NRA is not raising a voice in opposition. Perhaps the most insidious anti rights event this week occurred when the Department of Social Security announced that it was providing its records to the national gun background check data system. Anyone who has had to deal with the Social Security Administration can testify to the arrogance, anonymity, and lack of regard for its own rules and due process that is not even second to the IRS. The SSA is an unaccountable rogue agency. It is the tactic of a despotic government to seize upon an emotional issue and make it more important than the right of due process. What many people are clueless about is that the progressives and elitists do not primarily want our guns. They want our rights and our freedom.
