Texas Senator John Cornyn, noting that earlier this month Attorney General Eric Holder began seeking millions of dollars for the Department of Defense to research smart gun technology, has sent Holder a public letter requesting information and assurances that Holder will not make smart gun technology mandatory.
On Cornyn’s website the letter reads:
Your testimony has raised serious concerns for my constituents given President Obama’s track-record of acting beyond the scope of his legal authority and your hostility to the individual right to self-defense under the Second Amendment. Will you assure my constituents and me that, under your supervision, the Department of Justice will not issue regulations requiring law-abiding citizens to equip their firearms with fingerprint-reading technology, or to link them to biometric bracelets?”
