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

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.
