Handy says that he wants to force this infringement upon us to stop unauthorized use and save lives (and make a small profit).

Jim Handy is a semiconductor industry analyst at Objective Analysis who also writes for Forbes. He thinks it sure would be a swell idea if you gun-toting rednecks would be required to put an RFID chip in your guns, so that his industry can maybe make up to $1.10 for every gun sold.
The same kind of RFID tag is used to identify stray or stolen pets in a process called “Chipping”. My veterinarian told me that these chips are implanted between the shoulder blades, but that they often coast all over the animal’s body. Imagine having to hold your gun “just so” because your chip had coasted from your hand into your wrist.
Another approach which may be a little less sure but is decidedly more appealing is that of putting the owner’s RFID tag into a ring or bracelet. It’s not as secure as an implanted RFID tag, since the ring or bracelet can be stolen, but it doesn’t require surgery.
