Massachusetts Candidate for Attorney General Would Mandate Smart Gun Technology

Warren Tolman who is competing with Maura Healey for Attorney General of Massachusetts says he would mandate all new guns in Massachusetts be fitted with “smart-gun” fingerprint recognition technology. Healey has accused Tolman of softening on his threat. However, Tolman’s website says, “It’s time we use the power of this law to protect the health and safety of our citizens to do what Congress can’t—require gun manufacturers to utilize existing personalized gun technology for all weapons sold in the commonwealth.” Healey’s stance is one of not mandating the technology, but will welcome guns in the state that have built-in smart gun technology as a means to curb gun violence.

  1. My comment is in reference to the article – “Everytown for Gun Safety Commercial Backfires”.

    The honest candor of these liberal women of “The View” in their video speaks volumes for the real pulse of the overall American attitude on guns; not these fake 90% polls that Obama and Bloomberg continue to claim as the try to disarm this country.

    When you strip away all the anti-gun brainwashing political ignorance pumped into these liberals, in the end it boils down to one fundamental truth:

    No matter whom you may be or your politics, survival is a basic instinct that can never be conditioned out of you. Deep inside every person knows our world will never be completely free of evil doers. So until something better comes along, the gun will remain the supreme defensive tool above anything else.

    So when faced with life or death, there is really no one that would deny the ultimate force of a gun to assure their family’s survival – and thus we are all pro-gun whether we want to admit it or not.
