    Would this be a privacy violation or a useful thing?

    Discuss.

    ON EDIT: Does your opinion change if it identifies hand guns versus hunting rifles (and can be put in "sleep mode" when appropriate)?

    6. I might want to get one.

    Just to know which end of the room to stay away from.

    16. Whose rights? Their rights to carry a gun or my right to not be

    shot by knowing there is a person close by carrying a gun?

    I think it could be done, maybe one that detects metal. That way you would know if some one is carrying a knife as well. It would have to be refined to point out weapon type metals, maybe by the shape.

    21. Gangsters would know who to mug when they needed a gun.

    Beats breaking into the house with the "Forget the Dog, Beware of Owner" sign on the front gate.

    31. You just destroyed the gun ownership excuse of needing firearms

    for protection. If you can't protect yourself from a mugging, the whole premise falls apart.

    33. Open Carry would become default mode.

    35. Eventually, all weapons sold will contain identification chips.

    If anyone thinks otherwise, they are fooling themselves.

    Of course by then, sensible, but perceived as crushing by gun nuts, gun control laws will be in place.

    As the country crowds and bluifies, sanity will return, destroying this age of white power centered GOPNRAteahadism.

    41. I think chips in a gun are a good idea. Folks have the right to know a gun toting yahoo is nearby.

    What right would that be?

    85. It's in the Declaration of Independence.

    the right to health, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The Constitution is not the only document our government is based on.

    67. I'm paranoid enough already without knowing.

    Knowing would stress me out too much. I just assume everybody is packing up here.

    70. How about an app for gun nuts to tell them

    people around him/her don't want fucking guns near them?
    Then the gun nuts would have to face the fact that their anti social behavior isn't wanted.
    It takes 71 comments to point out this:

    71. Concealed carry people would love it

    The bad guys would know who not to mess with. The rest of us would hate it. It would be like having a target painted on us.

    See this why we can't have nice things....


    Hey Cleita! It's LIFE Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The fact that the Declaration of Independence does not contain Rights, is a whole other matter...


    And these people VOTE

    That thread is a riot and what a bunch of idiots. They are wetting the bed over whether they will be shot by someone with a CCW so they want to know everyone who is legally carrying to be identified.

    DUmmies...you should not fear the person with the CCW because the chances you will be shot by someone with a CCW are probably near zero. You need to fear thug-life that is carrying without a CCW. Now, go tell thug-life that he shouldn't be carrying a weapon or if he does carry he needs to open carry it. Go on, we'll wait.
    Be Not Afraid.

    If there was one, you could count on it to mostly be used by criminals.

    Wow, yeah. Wonderful to use the Declaration and to get it wrong. These people have no idea of what that document means.
