There's these things called serial numbers...

Ok, beyond my smart-assery (sorry, Paco) I take issue with that. It gets too close to violation of privacy issues. I don't want GPS chips in guns, or fire/not fire chips where you have to where the decoder ring to shoot it. Our federal government thinks the constitution is a substitute for Charmin. No need to give them anything else to play with, or any more ability to infringe.
