    CHICAGO (CBS) – A South Side alderman is asking for City Council hearings on an unorthodox gun control measure that would allow for GPS tracking of firearms. WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports Ald. Willie Cochran (20th), a former police officer, has suggested that global positioning system chips be embedded in new guns, and retrofitted on existing firearms, so they could be located if they go missing.

    “Just like if your car gets stolen, OnStar can tell you where your car is. If your gun gets stolen, and you report it, we should be able to find that gun,” he said.

    Cochran has introduced a resolution asking the Committee on Public Safety to hold hearings to receive testimony on the matter. A Massachusetts state senator from Boston has been pushing a similar measure in that state. Cochran acknowledged it might be expensive to install GPS chips on current and future firearms, but not as expensive as the cost of gun violence to society.

    If I want to organize a revolt against the government the people with the black helicopters might be able to identify us. That is exactly the type of thing the founding fathers were trying to guard against. The right to assemble with guns is our right!

    A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms free from GPS tracking devices shall not be infringed.

    No, they did it during Bush's 'Wide Receiver' and even then they failed to track the weapons. It seems the cartels would let the weapons sit in the desert until the drones ran out of gas before moving them to their destination.

    Obama's 'Fast and Furious' didn't even TRY to track them.
