WASHINGTON, D.C. – Progressives will always find a way to outflank the private sector. Consider this from Townhall:
… within days after Silicon Valley venture capitalist Ron Conway offered a $1 million prize to privately fund “smart gun” development, Holder proposed a plan to seize $2 million from taxpayers and dump it into federal research for smart guns.

A so-called smart gun is a firearm that syncs with a radio-frequency identification (RFID) chip in a bracelet or watch. The gun will not fire unless the shooter is wearing the bracelet. Supporters claim RFID will prevent accidental deaths. However, existing smart gun technology is costly (around $1,800 for the firearm and bracelet) and prone to error.
This is the progressives’ wet dream: develop technology and conveniently have the feds be able to manipulate it and potentially decide when people can use their guns.
But conspiracy theories aside, what makes anyone think $2 million would be enough? The feds spent $1 B-I-L-L-I-O-N on the Obamacare website. A WEBSITE. They think they can develop this type of technology for $2 million? They couldn’t develop the grant application for $2 million.
