    Italian Firearm Manufacturers putting RFID chips in their handguns

    Italian guns to be manufactured with RFID chips. My only question is whether other manufacturers will follow...

    "A hacker at Defcon’s 2010 hacking conference demonstrated a device he made that could recognize an RFID on the ground from 29 stories up. The range was too far to read the information on the RFID, but it let him know it was there."

    I doubt other manufacturers will follow based on the public outrage thus far. There is another thread with some pretty good discussion going...

    This is something states like Kali and Mass will try to require in all guns.
    "No state shall convert a liberty to a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor.- Murdock vs Pennsylvania 319 US 105

    ...If the state converts a right into a privelege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right... with impunity.
    - Shuttleworth vs City of Birmingham, Alabama 317 US 262

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.
    - Miranda vs Arizona 384 US 436

    Well, S&W thought they could curry favor in 2000 by working very closely with the Clinton administration
