Not that it matters. The federal government will come up with a law that will overrule it anyway.

They already have radio-frequency tracking chips implanted in dogs and cats released from shelters.
GSM and GPS chips are not far from being small enough for implantation.

I'm not saying these devices won`t have their uses, For instance tracking parolees and those that currently have to wear trackers on their ankle. But the government has made it clear they want to be able to ID someone from a distance without their knowledge for `safety reasons`.

I think the law isn't stupid at all, although the reasons for it might well be.

It`s prudent to have a law in place *before* you need one. The technology already exists to chip a person in some ways, so the law isn`t all that premature.
