Weapon RFID System Bill – Mandatory Tracking Of Kentucky’s Gun Owners

Weapon RFID System

(Winchester, KY) – In a controversial move today, Kentucky law makers slipped a bill through the senate making the installation of a tracking device or “Weapon RFID System” in firearms mandatory by state law.

The program’s preliminary launch will be in Clark County, Kentucky, specifically in the city of Winchester.

Winchester is probably best known for spawning the late Helen Thomas and their 1998 contribution to the Guinness Book Of World Records for most underage tobacco users per capita in the United States.

Nestled in the eastern portion of the blue state, the city of Winchester also is home to several academies of higher learning and is thought to be more intelligent and liberal than the rest of the state.

Kentucky itself boasts one of the highest gun ownership rates in the country.

Officials say they hope the bill will catch on so they can push to have it implemented nationwide.


The legislature seems to be inspired by Chicago Official, Alderman Willie Cochran, who approached his own city’s Committee On Public Safety back in January of this year with a similar idea. Cochran proposed it would be:

“Just like if your car gets stolen, OnStar can tell you where your car is. If your gun gets stolen, and you report it, we should be able to find that gun.”

By the beginning of next year it will be mandatory that all registered firearms within the state of Kentucky be implanted with a Weapon RFID System. Those who are found to be non-compliant by the deadline will face steep fines, jail time or even the loss of the firearm.

Gun owners will be required to show up at a predesignated location where they’ll pay a small fee and hand over their firearms to be implanted.

Any weapon that is still active must be have the Weapon RFID System installed. So this also means some antique or specialty guns will need to be looked over as well.


This program ensures that communities are kept safer when incidents of gun violence occur. By being able to track weapons used in violent crimes the perpetrators are apprehended quicker sparing further casualties. It will also enable law enforcement to locate stolen firearms by using the Weapon RFID System.

Lawmakers feel it is a acceptable compromise to install the chips rather than permanently confiscate every gun in the state as they have in countries such as Australia, Canada and the UK.

The lack of gun ownership surely hasn’t negatively affected our neighbors from “down under” or any country with strict firearm laws.

After all the horrible gun violence in our nation this journalist agrees that it is high time to start searching for viable solutions.

    Kentucky, this is electronic gun registration… the better to find it with when you stick it in a PVC tube to bury it. Registration is not to solve murders, it is to confiscate arms. Citizens, don’t do it. Bury some used iron pipe in PVC to keep the Gustapo busy… lots of pipe! Bury enough pipe and the government will plow your fields for spring planting.

  2. Beano says:

    BEWARE! Test article written by a liberal. They are gauging reaction and will shortly introduce a modified bull, er bill with workarounds but still containing the gist of and goal of complete gun control.

    Perhaps an RFID that records only when you leave your house. You know, stuff like that.

  3. WhiteFalcon says:

    I have asked a few people that should know about this, including one law enforcement person and one lawyer, and I have come up with a couple of things. 1) There are no registered guns in Kentucky. 2) There can be no state law that is not enforced uniformly throughout the state. It is stupid anyway. Anyone knows that if a gun is involved in a crime the gun was present at the crime scene. The locators do not prove that anyone specific person, like the legal owner of the gun, was the person that did the crime. At any rate, from what I have been able to find out, this article is FOS.

  4. MertvayaRuka says:

    Hey, this is a cute strawliberal act you’ve got going here, got all the rubes riled up, but I think there’s a few things you should know.

    One, there are enough Democrat and Liberal gun owners in the Pacific Northwest that your supposed opinions would put you in the minority of either in this area. You know why people in Washington State are allowed to own sound suppressors for firearms? Democrats, that’s why. They sponsored the bill that made them legal.

    Two, as numerous people have pointed out, this story is false. Pretty much all you’re doing with it is showing exactly how ignorant National Report readers are regarding RKBA in Kentucky, since they’re responding with true belief to a story that has zero corroboration anywhere. Good job making all of us RKBA supporters look like idiots.

    Three, I AM a liberal. I know maybe two people outside of the elitist media liberal-in-name-only types that actually sound like you. The only people fooled by your act are people who lack the brain power to think past stereotypes. Yes, I know you left hints to who and what you really are here. No, clearly almost no one here has picked up on that. Yes, that says a lot more about your audience then it does about “liberals”.

    So what are you trying to do here, exactly? Obviously it’s not supporting RKBA, because you’re spreading info that, contrary to whatever brilliant idea you had about being thought-provoking and “edgy” or whatever, will instead be repeated over and over by low-information morons who can’t bother to fact-check anything and will be easily debunked by any anti-gun person who can do a five minute google search. The last damn thing we need right now is more nonsense that the anti-gun side can point to as evidence that we’re all stupid and untrustworthy.

    To sum up, if you’re trying to help, PLEASE STOP. If you think your oh-so-clever liberal parody is worth more than the damage it’s going to do to RKBA, you’re wrong. To everybody else that thought this was real, no, it’s some “politically incorrect” jackhole making you all look like dupes because their own ego and “sticking it to liberals” is more important to them than your right to protect yourself and your families and friends. This liberal wants to keep that right. That right is more important to this liberal than screwing with people I don’t agree with politically. This liberal is like the ones in Colorado who turned out for the recall 2 to 1 over Republicans and STILL voted Morse and Giron out. We need allies, not this wedge-driving bullshit.

    I clicked on her name since it would let me. And the following website is where it I was sent to something about Sin Eater Productions: http://sineaterproductions.com/. I would say she is in cahoots with those Westboro Baptist Church Faggot lovers from Kansas, As well as fools like Al Sharpton.

    This would also explain her level of stupidity and ignorance towards guns and whether they be held by a criminal or us common redneck types for hunting.

    As for stupidity level being the highest that there is. I would love to have her go to some area where the criminals run it all and see how fast she dials 911 cause a criminal with a gun wasn’t rehabilitated like like her faith in the system says.

    It ain’t the gun’s fault for what has happened to them. It is the criminal with a gun that kills not the good people whom have then for home safety or hunting or even those who collect them just the same. Don’t she realize that or is she that fricken stupid?

    What a snow job from her, and I have yet to find out anything on this so called bill she talks about even after doing research on the net.

  6. GTeye says:

    If it can be implanted in the grip, it can be removed, so once again, how does this combat criminal behavior?

  7. Fly on the Wall says:

    You are a disgusting moron! We have a God given and Constitutional right to protect and defend ourselves! What happens when only the government and criminals (though I repeat myself) have weapons? Tyranny and slavery! As a woman, I refuse to be a victim and I refuse to allow my children to be victims! This author displays the thinking that enables gun free zones which enables mass murder and epitomizes the lefts desire to separate us from our freedom and liberty and indicates they truly have few functioning brain cells. Shameful and disgusting! From my cold, dead hands! One of these days it will be someone like me who saves a sissy liberal with our mean, scary gun!

  8. Carlos Hathcock says:

    Perhaps the free citizens of KY will get angry enough to run these anti-constitutional, tax eating parasites out of office. The scumbag politicians in Colorado learned the hard way that you shouldn’t bite the hand that feeds you.

  9. justin says:

    Not a problem down under, because they dont have young black males.

    in the states you gotta have a gun to protect yourself and your children from young black thugs, who being 2.5% of the population, commit 47% of the violent crimes in the US
    and they certainly are not going to comply with this assinine idea.

    the laws against murder dont seem to deter these thugs, so what makes some liberal pansy think thugs are going to suddenly start obeying a silly law requiring them to show up and pay the cops to install a RFID in a gun?????

    Plus about 10 seconds in a microwave will fry any RFID.

    “gee officer , it just quit working,”

  10. Steve says:

    This has to be a joke… RFID is a very short range signal… It’s not like a State Trooper can sit in his office and see where every weapon in the state is located.

  11. Iblis says:

    As the old SNL saying goes..”Jane, you ignorant bitch.” RFID and GPS are two different things that so many others have pointed out. An RFID device will not be able to be tracked like a GPS unit does. This will do nothing to stop violence or crime. The George W. Bush administration was putting tracking devices on firearms that went into Mexico(Linebacker Program) That was ok until the drug dealers found out about them and then they took them out. The program was canceled. They didn’t want a bunch of untraceable guns in the hands of criminals, unlike the Obama administration who didn’t care if criminals had guns. All they wanted was to blame the US for guns in Mexico so they could get the Assault Weapons ban back. Criminals will do the same. They will take them out. All you do is change the grips. Done. This whole idea in another gun registration program and I urge ALL to not participate. Certain people can’t legally drive due to DWI’s on the record, but they still do and they still kill people. You are not going to stop gun crime, alcohol crime, drug crime and theft crime and so on. You punish the guilty and leave the innocent alone.

  12. deb lowe says:

    Miss Agni where in the world did you come from? Tracking devices on guns is one of the stupidest ideas yet. Are you so sure that criminals will be so willing to have a tracking device implanted on their weapon (s). Well dear we’ll let you be the First one to walk right up too a, hmm, let’s say; a head of well known Gang member and you pitch your spill to him. That little Miss is an Challenge from all of us to you Oh Yeah with cameras rolling so we can watch you convince him. Are you READY WILLING and ABLE. Or chicken out. Chicken out! Then you back off this stupid bill.

    DEAL!!!

  15. Josh in Champaign says:

    Enclosing the gun in a simple faraday cage, such as a metal fiber mesh bag, will render the RFID tag useless. Something any crook or good guy can employ. More useless, money wasting feel good legislation.

    It must be nice to live in the make believe land of Liberalopolis, where Ms. Agni resides. A place where wishes are horses and pigs have wings, and criminals not only give up their firearms because of some silly make believe law, but they also fart fairy dust that makes you fly. What she said in her comment is so asinine it almost seems like a hoax…. but then again, there were plenty of people stupid enough to elect Barry to office. Perhaps we should disarm everyone in Kentucky, and ship those arms to Syria where the Al Qaeda rebels can massacre more Christians and Syrian civilians, hmmm Jane? After all, our Government only has the best intentions. War is totally cool now since Obama is starting them. Hope and Change? Yes we can!

  18. Solomon says:

    This will create an entirely new criminal market; smuggling “non-RFID” firearms. Firearms aren’t drugs, they are a legitimate tool used for self-defense and recreation and, best of all, are clearly outlined in the Constitution as something rightful to own.

    Criminals, real criminals, exist and despite your candy-land pipe dream, not ALL can be reformed. Psychologically speaking, there are certain people that have a certain personality type or are driven by a specific motivation to resort to crime. As a result, most true criminals are resourceful. If they go ahead with the RFID movement, those resourceful criminals will resort to other means of obtaining their firearms.

    Which part of “facts” do you NOT understand? Are you channeling the idiocy of Piers Morgan?

    “The lack of gun ownership surely hasn’t negatively affected our neighbors from “down under” or any country with strict firearm laws.”

    FALSE!

    Crime rates have skyrocketed in the UK and Australia after gun confiscations.

    Only one scholar, attorney David Kopel, has attempted to evaluate the impact of “gun control” on crime in several foreign countries. In his book The Samurai, The Mountie and The Cowboy: Should America adopt the gun controls of other democracies?, named a 1992 Book of the Year by the American Society of Criminology, Kopel examined numerous nations with varying gun laws, and concluded: “Contrary to the claims of the American gun control movement, gun control does not deserve credit for the low crime rates in Britain, Japan, or other nations.” He noted that Israel and Switzerland, with more widespread rates of gunownership, have crime rates comparable to or lower than the usual foreign examples. And he stated: “Foreign style gun control is doomed to failure in America. Foreign gun control comes along with searches and seizures, and with many other restrictions on civil liberties too intrusive for America. Foreign gun control…postulates an authoritarian philosophy of government fundamentally at odds with the individualist and egalitarian American ethos.”

    America’s high crime rates can be attributed to revolving-door justice. In a typical year in the U.S., there are 8.1 million serious crimes like homicide, assault, and burglary. Only 724,000 adults are arrested and fewer still (193,000) are convicted. Less than 150,000 are sentenced to prison, with 36,00 0 serving less than a year (U.S. News and World Report, July 31, 1989). A 1987 National Institute of Justice study found that the average felon released due to prison overcrowding commits upwards of 187 crimes per year, costing society approximately $430, 000.

    Foreign countries are two to six times more effective in solving crimes and punishing criminals than the U.S. In London, about 20% of reported robberies end in conviction; in New York City, less than 5% result in conviction, and in those cases imprisonment is frequently not imposed. Nonetheless, England annually has twice as many homicides with firearms as it did before adopting its tough laws. Despite tight licensing procedures, the handgun-related robbery rate in Britain rose about 200% duri ng the past dozen years, five times as fast as in the U.S.

    Part of Japan’s low crime rate is explained by the efficiency of its criminal justice system, fewer protections of the right to privacy, and fewer rights for criminal suspects than exist in the United States. Japanese police routinely search citizens at will and twice a year pay “home visits” to citizens’ residences. Suspect confession rate is 95% and trial conviction rate is over 99.9%. The Tokyo Bar Association has said that the Japanese police routinely “…engage in torture or illegal treatment. Even in cases where suspects claimed to have been tortured and their bodies bore the physical traces to back their claims, courts have still accepted their confessions.” Neither the powers and secrecy of the police nor the docility of defense counsel would be acceptable to most Americans. In addition, the Japanese police understate the amount of crime, particularly covering up the problem of organized crime, in order to appear more efficient an d worthy of the respect the citizens have for the police.

    Widespread respect for law and order is deeply ingrained in the Japanese citizenry. This cultural trait has been passed along to their descendants in the United States where the murder ratef or Japanese-Americans (who have access to firearms) is similar to that in Japan itself. If gun availability were a factor in crime rates, one would expect European crime rates to be related to firearms availability in those countries, but crime rat es are similar in European countries with high or relatively high gun ownership, such as Switzerland, Israel, and Norway, and in low availability countries like England and Germany. Furthermore, one would expect American violent crime rates to be more sim ilar to European rates in crime where guns are rarely used, such as rape, than in crimes where guns are often used, such as homicide. But the reverse is true: American non-gun violent crime rates exceed those of European countries.

By being able to track writing devices used in thought crimes the perpetrators are apprehended quicker sparing further brain cell casualties. It will also enable law enforcement to locate stolen writing devices by using the Weapons of Mass Confusion RFID System.

    Lawmakers feel it is a acceptable compromise to install the chips rather than criminalize speaking or writing entirely in the state as they have in countries such as Germany, China and the former Soviet Union.

    The lack of writing device ownership surely hasn’t negatively affected our neighbors from “behind the iron curtain” or any country with strict dangerous thought laws.

    After all the horrible drivel that passes itself off as “journalism” in our nation this author agrees that it is high time to start searching for viable solutions.

    Mentioning Australia as a poster child for gun banning shows how little research this anti-gun reporter has done. Australia had a Huge jump in the number of armed robberies as soon as all the guns were confiscated. The idea of disarming law abiding citizens so that only those law breaking people have guns who seem so self evident that anyone would understand its major FLAW.
    People, registration requirements do not mean anything to ROBBERS / LAW BREAKERS. By definition they break laws, they will not bother to try and legally own a gun. Many are prohibited from owning a gun as they are convicted Felons. Bad guys break laws so no matter how many laws you pass it is just one more they will break.
    Gee when an illegal gun is used by a robber, how do I track his gun?? Oh never thought about that did they. Just make sure all the nasty guns can be tracked. OK HOW??

    This story is complete bullshit. Don’t believe me? Try to find a copy of the bill. Or any reference to it that doesn’t link back to this page. This DID NOT HAPPEN! You can’t even find a link to even a mention of such a bill ever being introduced. Never mind any saying it was passed or signed by the GOV. If it had happened then every anti gun media outlet would be talking about it. Hell by now Zero himself would have jumped all over it calling it a win for his pet project…

  28. Mike Thomas says:

    THIS IS NOTHING BUT A GUN REGISTRATION LAW!

    Are we Southerners? What happened to our values? Time to vote out all Democrats!

    Just how is an RFID chip going to identify and then track a firearm used in a crime? It’s not possible and that cannot and certainly is not this ridiculous law’s purpose. RFID chips have a transmission range of a few meters. Even if they could transmit a bit further, they would not be able to accomplish anyhing. This law will spawn a program whose real purpose is designed to take your guns to the Police so they can register your guns and we know what comes next..confiscation! There is no other reason and none has ever been successfully logically articulated to the contrary. This is liberal BS and an attempt to make an end run around the constitution and achieve the real goal of complete gun registration, control, and eventually confiscation. Progressives, Liberals, and Democrats don’t value or care about the law or our Constitution.

    I first contacted J&T distributing and Doublestar firearms, responsible for manufacturing and distributing Doublestar firearms,both located in Winchester KY. Neither had heard of this supposed new law. Then I called the Clark county sheriffs department, the people who would be responsible for enforcing said law. They had heard of the story, but it was from concerned citizens, not from any legislators or official sources. They said it was bogus and unlikely true. Then I contacted the Kentucky statute revisers office, they would be the people who keep track of any and all laws passed in the entire state. they had never heard of it. Finally I contacted the offices of Senator R.J. Palmer II, The senator from the district mentioned in the article. His assistant laughed when I asked him if I could ask about a piece of recent legislation and said he bet he could guess what I was talking about.He told me the story was an obvious spoof, and definitely not true, as Senator Palmer would never infringe or allow others to infringe on the second amendment rights of his constituents. He also said the story would be more believable if it were talking about some place like Maine or New Hampshire, but not Kentucky. The Senators phone number if you’re interested in asking for yourself is (502) 564-2470. The Clark county Sheriffs department number is (859) 744-4390. The Kentucky statute revisers office is (502) 564-8100 ext. 566. I’m not trying to start an argument, just trying to get to the truth. Kentucky is pro 2A, always has been and always will be.

    how will this RFID chip be installed on my guns? I have a 1955 model 94 winchester that is in great condition. You can’t tell me that so BS chip that is stuck to the side of the gun wont hurt the value of the gun. I want to keep grandpas guns the way he had them. Any good thief that is after guns to sell on the black market will figure out a way to remove the RFID chip. Why would a criminal change after we install the RFID? What is keeping them from changing now? I’m not saying people can’t change but when all the criminals change and hand in their guns I’ll be looking for leprechauns and unicorns because we have obvious entered the blind lefts wing land of rainbow bull shit land.

They must be related to the Great Muslim Socialist queer loving Onappyhead!

  39. terrymcfalls says:

    Satire,but you had my attention.removing guns from that or any part of KY would not be worth the dead cops that attempted it.

  40. D LaNier says:

    Jane, I have a question of a technical nature, and was wondering if you would be willing to clarify? Please correct me if I’m wrong, but RFID chip can only be detected from a very short distance away (i.e.; The RFID chip in my dog can only be detected from an inch or two above the skin). The claim of this system being like “OnStar for firearms” made by Mr. Cochran sounds much more like a GPS tracker than an RFID chip. So I was hoping you might be able to elaborate on the abilities of this new system?

    If it is a simple RFID with a limited range, then the claim that “It will also enable law enforcement to locate stolen firearms by using the Weapon RFID System”, which makes it sound like this chip will lead the police right to where the gun is, wouldn’t be factual. All it would be capable of doing is identifying the owner faster once the weapon has been located by traditional policing methods, which seems to me like it offers no advantage at all.

    Finally, though I disagree with your stance on this issue, I appreciate your willingness to put it out there anyway, and I’m sorry for all that hateful replies you have received. Thanks.

  41. Wolf says:

    “The lack of gun ownership surely hasn’t negatively affected our neighbors from “down under” or any country with strict firearm laws.” Have you done any real research into that before you spouted off that drivel? That goes beyond naive, to just plain stupid. I sincerely hope you were being sarcastic when you wrote that.

  42. Owen K. says:

    Yeah, right. And every law abiding gang banger is going to go right down to the police dept. and have the chip installed. Sure they will.

  43. C. Heston says:

    Jane,

    I just found your website today. Amazing writing. Stories that need to be told. Pull the wool from the worlds’ eyes and tell it like it is.

  44. Cletus says:

    This is purely made up and there is no truth to it whatsoever. I am in KY and no such bill passed, our legislature is not even in session until January. And the writer obviously has never been to Kentucky (and definitely not Winchester) because other than the Helen Thomas comment, everything else she said was not even close to true.

  45. Pretty cool. you do this for your creative writing class? advice- look into statistics. areas with strict gun control, like Chicago, have higher violent crime rates. more gun control does not mean less violent crime. how is it hard to understand that CRIMINALS will not follow the law anyway, which is why they are called CRIMINALS. the unfortunates that follow any law that cuts into their second amendment rights just becomes a softer target for those that prey on others. is that hard to comprehend? this point is not new, law abiding citizens understand this and try to use it to keep their means of protection. what I have not seen is any evidence disputing this fact

  46. Frank says:

    I don’t think this journalist knows much about the subject at hand. RFID tracking will do absolutely nothing as criminals will just remove or fry the chips. Also, gun violence in the US has been in a pretty steady decline since it peaked in the 90s. This is all just legislators fearmongering to further their political careers.

  47. Steve S says:

    Just EMP the little chip. You can then say the chip was installed but must have failed. The gun has no other electronics, or does it?
