Quote of the day:
With the right technology enforcing gun control and safety would be an easier task for Law enforcement.
Currently All guns manufactured have a serial number on them, this process takes much longer when trying to identify who owned the gun, who sold the gun, etc. This is where an app for a smartphone could truly make a difference. Of course this app would be available to law enforcement only and not the general public. With this mobile app, Law enforcement would have the ability to tag guns in real time. Such as when a gun is purchased the name of the owner, and the store from where it is sold is put in to the system, as well as the date and time.
With this information, a recognition system could be used for guns. Maybe along with the serial number etched on the gun, NFC (Near Field Communication) chips could be embedded in the metal. Thus Law enforcement could simply wave their device (smartphone) over the gun and would immediately receive data to aid in the case.

How To Make Gun Control More Efficient Through Better Technology
There are so many things wrong with this it would take me more words to describe the errors than it took him to demonstrate his ignorance. Here is a sample:
- He assumes that guns used in crimes were purchased by the criminal committing the crime rather than stolen or multiple private sales later.
- He assumes the NFC chip would not be removed.
- He is unaware that the NFC chip would be shielded from the reader by being embedded in metal.
- He assumes the criminal leaves the gun at the scene of the crime rather than keeping it or disposing of it miles away from the crime.
- He assumes gun owners will be accepting of this technology.
- He assumes the technology will pass constitutional muster. When the express purpose of the right to keep and bear arms is the prevention and/or remediation of a tyrannical government keeping records of individual guns and tracking those guns would significantly degrade this express purpose.
Not only is the technology suggested impractical. It probably would be found to be illegal. And, in part, is physically impossible.
Nice job Chaudhari! Your ignorance is truly impressive. Thanks for sharing with us.
