After Attorney General Eric Holder revealed that he was considering forcing gun owners to wear identifying bracelets, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin harshly warned him that he better not even think about trying to implement the idea.
"Eric, 'You don't want to go there, buddy,'" she declared on Wednesday.
Palin posted a photo (see below) of the three bracelets she often wears and explained the significance of each:
Hey Eric, these are my identifying bracelets:
One honors our military;
One honors independent Americans who have a healthy distrust of Washington's permanent political class and who will fight against elitists hell-bent on fundamentally transforming the USA;
And one celebrates the year 1791 – that glorious year our Bill of Rights came to be, with the cross and bones symbol representing our Founders’ "Death to Tyranny" commitment, and on each side you'll see symbols of my faith. Complete with Swarovski crystals, I might add."
"Eric, you can replace my identifying bracelets with your government marker when you pry them off my cold, dead wrists," Palin then added.
On Friday, Holder told a House Committee that he was exploring the idea of gun bracelets.
"I think that one of the things that we learned when we were trying to get passed those common sense reforms last year, Vice President Biden and I had a meeting with a group of technology people and we talked about how guns can be made more safe," Holder said. "By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or something that you might wear, how guns can be used only by the person who is lawfully in possession of the weapon."
