BIDEN: I’ve never heard of the biometric safety of the Glock.
I have no idea if it’s a safe.
And I’m going to tell you this right now, and I want everybody to hear it, if I’m president of the United States, we’re going to be putting a lot of biometric stuff on the books and people will be able to get in.
And we’re not going to have any guns where they can’t get into it.
But I don’t know if it would be a safe if there were a biometric way of tracking the guns, or where you could go in and get them if they were stolen.
If somebody’s got a gun, you can trace that.
If you have a gun stolen, you don’t get it back.
So I think we’re on the verge of having that happen.
The question is, is it going to work?
I mean, you know, if there was a biometrics way to track guns, I would be more than happy to use it.
I would say that.
But if there wasn’t, you need a way to verify that it’s there.
And so we’re starting to do that now, which is a good thing.
The fact is, I don`t know if there`s going to ever be an acceptable way for somebody to get a gun with a biotimber on it.
So it`s hard to predict what might happen, but I don�t think it will be a great idea.
BLOCK: Well, I have to ask, though, is there any reason to think that biometrically tracking guns might not be a good idea, or that the biometries, as we`re saying, will not be able do that, that it won`t work?
Biden: Well — BLOCK : You`re right.
But the point is that if you have to get rid of a gun that you have, you want it, you think you have it.
And you don`ts know if the other guy has it.
If they have it, they`re going to keep it.
BLECK: You have to keep the gun.
BLACK: If it`ll be in the house.
BLUSH: If you keep it, and they keep it at home.
BLOOGE: If there`ll ever be a way for me to get the gun back.
BLOSSOM: All right, thanks very much, Senator Biden.
BLOGGER: We`re looking forward to your remarks today.
Senator Biden, thanks.
I appreciate it.
BIDENS: I am.
BLOOM: We will keep you posted.
BLANK: Thank you.
Thank you very much.
We`ll see you next time.
BLUH: Thank, Senator, for joining us.
BLOXTON: I`m Burt Luttrell.
Thanks very much for joining me.
BOOGE, I`ve been hearing from a lot about the biographic handgun safe.
It`s a lot like biometric identification cards, but it`m a different kind of ID card, and it`re not a good ID card.
BLUMENTHAL, the gun-control organization, wants it.
The only way to have it is to put a biographic safety on the gun itself, and that is not going do it.
The ATF is taking it on.
The NRA opposes it.
Now, the ATF is already considering it.
They are also considering a law.
We are working with them on a plan to implement it.BLUMENTHL: And that law would not only stop the gun lobby from pushing it, it would stop the ATF from even considering it, either.
BLOOD, the NRA, opposes it because it`d violate the right to keep and bear arms.
BLUBBERG, the National Rifle Association, supports it.
You can read all of their position.BLOCK: We have another guest today.
This is Steve Forbes.
We have an article about the Supreme Court, and you can go to his site and read the opinion he wrote, which was joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is one of the more liberal justices on the court.
He writes about the Constitution.
It says, if you are not a citizen, you cannot vote.
It would be unconstitutional for anyone to be forced to register to vote.
And it also says, “No citizen shall be deprived of his free exercise of religion.”
And it says, and this is the most important part, the Constitution gives us all the power, and the Supreme Justices in this country are the ones that decide how that power is used.
But it` is also the job of the Congress to enforce the laws.BLOOMBERG: And I am curious, Senator. I
