Senator Ed Markey to push federal gun control bill in 2014
Quote:U.S. Sen. Edward Markey is planning to unveil a new gun control bill he says will help reduce firearm violence.

The bill will focus in part on requiring handgun technology designed to increase safety. Markey is also planning to call for more federal funding for gun violence research.

“Handgun technology” suggests that Markey is either attempting to force “smart guns” or microstamping down the throats of the American people.

These are two technologies are so unreliable that no law enforcement agency—local, state, or federal—in the United States will use them on their own firearms for fears they will undermine the reliability of the firearm and compromise officer safety.

“Smart guns” have been the holy grail of gun designers for 50 years, but none have been commercially successful.

Various technological solutions have been tried, with the most recent attempts based on proximity-activated RFID (radio-frequency identification) technology. The “most promising” (and that is a very relative term) RFID-based tech only allows the gun to be fired if the user is wearing a special bracelet with an activation chip. currently, it works just 90-percent of the time..
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
