New Jersey County, Florida company to sell gun tracking RFID chips


And in case you are wondering, NJ County, Fl is what I shall call Hillsborough County (Tampa and neighborhood areas) from now on.

Via The Gun Writer in Facebook:


A Clearwater business is developing a way to alert gun owners the moment their weapons are on the move and help them track them back down.TracFind is developing a small GPS device that can be attached to guns. The device, which combines GPS tracking technology with smartphone signals, can track in real time a stolen or lost weapon to within three feet. An added feature notifies the gun owner immediately if the secured gun moves as much as an inch…

It will never be abused, right? Nothing like a constantly beeping beacon showing where your gun is at all times to anybody with the proper technology to make you feel war and fuzzy…because, you know… radio waves? That is so high-tech only a few people know how to intercept.

Local law enforcement apparently peed a little in their pants when they found about this. But yes, ony for tracking stolen guns…yeah right. And specially the part where the software sends LEOs notifications about the gun being moved. And if that does not scare you…

Kevin Richardson, spokesman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, had not heard about the new technology and was eager to see its impact on gun thefts. “What we’re seeing across the country, in most states, is an increase in burglaries of gun stores,” as well as residences, he said. “But there is a growing awareness among legal gun owners that they have to secure their guns.”

Tracking devices inside guns associated with ATF, where have I heard that combination leading to deadly fuck ups before? My memory somehow fails me at this moment. I am sure it will come back to me.
This is what happens when you let Carpetbaggers and Snow Birds stay in Florida.

  1. If it proves effective, I can easily see some politicians moving to mandate the technology in all new firearms. Either the removal of the offending equipment or a few seconds of microwave RF should do the trick if that becomes the situation

  2. […] Miguel writes about a company in Florida that embed GPS tracking into firearms that allows them to …. Much like smart guns, I don’t mind this technology per-se, provided it lives or dies by the free market. If people want this kind of tracking in their firearms, more power too them. […]

    Absolutely unacceptable. We need to punish the TracFind company. Their product will not prevent crimes but will be a big issue with our security from our government that wants to control everything.

    Imagine if the government wanted to place one in your Bible and every time that you opened it this was recorded or your refrigerator door with a camera to monitor what you are eating or some equally obnoxious intrusion into your privacy. Kind of like the NSA. You get what you tolerate.

  4. “. . . is what I call Hillsborough County . . .” “A Clearwater company . . .” Clearwater is in Pinellas County.
    I once worked with a Federal agent who had previously been a Pinellas SO deputy in the late 70s and early 80s. He said his career perfectly illustrated the urbanization and changes in Pinellas County. His first call as a deputy was a stolen cow. His last call, as a detective (during the cocaine cowboy era), was a triple homicide.

  5. An added feature notifies the gun owner immediately if the secured gun moves as much as an inch…

    How’s this supposed to work in a safe?

  6. […] Putting tracking RFIDs in guns? Well, that’s one company’s idea. […]

  7. Some of us carpetbaggers moved here to keep it the way we found it.

    Hillsborough is the only county around here that does the full delays allowed on any sale. They have the optional rifle waiting period and enforce the full “pawn hold” on guns sold to gun shops before they can be resold. Enforce it hard enough that some shops even apply it to the specifically exempted transfers going through their FFL.

    And just west is the nearly as bad Pinellas! Pasco might suck, but at least we’re not stuck with two giant liberal enclave cities.

    Didn’t Chiappa have a chip idea a few years ago? IIRC, they suffered a loss of business and stopped. Same idea, different year. . .

  9. Being an electrical engineer and all, I know how this kind of thing can fail. Especially if it needs to.
