Bitcoin Gun Tracking Bill Close to Enactment in Arizona
Arizona legislators have completed a bill that seeks to prevent blockchains from being used as a tool for trackarms tracking.
First filed by an Arizona state representative in mid-January, House Bill 2216 seeks to stop anyone – save for law enforcement or other exempt entities – from using blockchain tech to track when a gun is fired, for example.
More broadly, the measure focuses on potential targets of gun-tracking through the use of “electronic firearm tracking technology” – a term that, as the text goes on to explain, would include blockchain.
And, yesterday, the House gave its blessing in a 34-24 vote, after which the bill was sent to Governor Doug Ducey for signature.
This will be the second bill completed in Arizona this year that has focused on blockchain technology.
