    Mass Gun Fingerprinting Bill and it

    Gun fingerprinting again - and it's retroactive.

    And show me where they get the $20 figure from. I'd like to find a gunsmith who will replace a S&W K-frame firing pin for $20 parts and labor.

    Tierney files safe-gun legislation .

    Ipswich — This April a 6-year-old shot and killed a 4 year old while playing with a handgun in New Jersey. In Ohio, a 3-year-old boy shot and killed himself while playing with his father’s loaded handgun. A 4-year-old shot his aunt, the wife of a Tennessee sheriff, with a gun he found in the home.

    These three cases are examples of the 32,000 total accidental handgun deaths in the United States annually.

    Congressman John Tierney, D-Salem, hopes legislation he filed today, Wednesday, May 15, the Personalized Handgun Safety Act of 2013, will slash the death toll.

    “A child or teen dies or is injured by a gun every 30 minutes; a child or teen is killed by a gun every three hours and 15 minutes. The personalization technology required by Congressman Tierney’s bill will help to prevent these tragedies,” said Marian Wright Edelman, president of the Children’s Defense Fund.

    Within two years of passage, the legislation would require handgun manufacturers to equip all their weapons with a personal identification system that only allows the gun owner to fire the gun.

    Within in three years of enactment the bill would require any used handgun sold to be retrofitted with a personal identification system.

    Tierney estimated such systems would add about $20 to the price of a handgun.

    The legislation would also provide research and development grants to further develop the technology and to defray the cost of the personalized identification or smart technology.

    “It’s a common-sense approach,” said Tierney in a phone press conference on the legislation. “It’s a real chance to see guns are made safer. I hope colleagues will join in on that.”

    Tierney said 12 of his House members had already expressed an interest in co-sponsoring the bill.

    “The biggest threat to safety of children regarding guns is not school safety,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “It’s the guns they find around homes.”

    Even though smart gun technology saves James Bond in “Skyfall,” the technology isn’t the stuff of science fiction or movie fantasy. It’s reality, today, say advocates of the legislation.

    “In 1995 the technology was available,” said John Rosenthal, founder of Stop Handgun Violence.

    If he wishes to save lives, perhaps he should be looking into the 3500 abortions performed daily.

    Love the buzzword of 2013: "common sense"

    Such an oxymoron being they have none.

    I would love to have Mr. Tierney show us how that kind of technology will cost $20 per gun.

    People will say ANYTHING to get legislation passed. They promise everything to get elected, say everything the sheep want to hear to get elected then can't or don't follow through.

    Reminds me of the kids in my school running for class congress. Their speeches are ridiculous promising a Burger King in the cafe, a smoking lounge out by the parking lot, Prom at the Four Seasons, No Homework law, etc... They say anything to get kids to vote for them knowing full well they can't and won't be able to come through.

    Then... when their prom is at the Burger king down the street because they raised no money, couldn't get Burger King to open shop at the school, no smokes on campus, etc.... all the sheep just shrug their shoulders and rent limos to the king. Funny as all get out!!!

    seems things don't change as the politicians get older!!!

    scooterbum, quote: <i>"If he wishes to save lives, perhaps he should be looking into the 3500 abortions performed daily."</i>

    On the other hand, that's 3500 fewer liberal voters and potential entitlement recipients daily LOL.

    Typical liberal drivel using false data to influence the uninformed to accept their position on making guns impossible to obtain. First of all, the number of deaths from accidental shootings averages 500 to 600 per year and not the 32,000 he states. Additionally the "system" he proposes would price handguns out of reach of nearly all citizens and he knows it, but that is undoubtedly his goal. If the technology was currently available at a reasonable cost why would the bill "provide research and development grants to further develop the technology and to defray the cost."
