Ben Carson calls for fingerprint locks on guns

MFP & co. Published October 6, 2014

The good news is Carson walked back remarks from March 2013 in which he suggested the right to bear semi-automatic weapons should be limited to rural areas:

What I said was, perhaps, a little inartful.

The bad news Carson’s revised position opens the door to gun confiscation:

What I was trying to get across is that we need to talk about how do we keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of people who are crazy.

So, the same federal bureaucrats that harassed Tea Party groups and classified the Founding Fathers as “terrorists” will determine who is too “crazy” to own guns?

What could possibly go wrong?

Fingerprint locks

Carson continues:

Look at some safety mechanisms that can be installed on a gun– maybe something that is sensitive to your fingerprint.

Carson acknowledges that 2A is a fail safe against a tyrannical a federal government. But fingerprint locks, which make it markedly easier to suppress an insurgent force, is inconsistent with that objective.

  1. How much easier would it have been for the British if colonists’ rifles could only be used by the original owner?
  2. How much easier would it have been for Emperor Palatine and Darth Vader if lightsabers and rebel blasters were fingerprint locked?

Moreover, once fingerprint locks are federally-mandated– it won’t be long before the government has the power to disarm your weapon remotely.

The Correct Answer

Children are statistically more likely to be struck by lightening twice than killed in a mass shooting spree– that infinitesimally miniscule chance is a small price to pay for liberty.
