Gun microstamping could close American factories

    They ASSUME a shell casing will be left behind at a crime scene. How very ignorant on their part.
    No doubt the aftermarket titanium firing pin makers will be ready.:supergrin:

    As will BG's with revolvers. Good luck getting ballistics off a Judge.

    Let me play the BG for one minute. I go buy a gun legally shoot someone with it then bring it home. YAH! RIGHT!

    Lets try this... I'm a BG. I steal or buy a stolen gun, I shoot someone and leave microstaped casings behind. The police/FBI/Home Land Security one of the alphabet soup traces the stamp back to the "lawful" / original owner. Now I'm the Good Guy. Yes sir I bought that gun five years ago. When I went to the mall they wouldn't let me bring it in even though I'm a CCW holder so I left it in my locked car. Someone stole it. And what does the LEO do now. The same thing he/she would have done if there were no microstamping only they wasted a week calling suppliers running down dealers and going through records to find out who bought the gun "legally. Makes sense to me. :rofl:

    Yet another attempt to legislate personal responsibility!
    We're the Gov't and we're here to protect you. I'm your politician, trust me, the new jobs that are created in the Firearms Microstamping Division will far outweigh the measly manufacturing jobs lost.

    Jerry,

    A few years before I left California our crafty legislators passed a law that if your gun is stolen you have X number of days or hours, (I forget which,) to report it as stolen. They have plenty of time to push legislation like that through, meanwhile the state is circling the bowl. :rollingeyes:

    In California the law signed in 2007 by Schwarzenegger requires microstamping technology to be unencumbered by patents before the law can take effect.

    The original patent owner Todd Lizotte was going to let the patent expire so the technology would be in the public domain. The Calguns Foundation renewed the microstamping patent just before it expired for a mere $555.

    Calguns now owns the patent, and the very law that would require all guns to microstamp a case in order to be sold in California won't go into effect.

    Calguns-1, California-0

    No politician cares if it works or not. The objective is to eliminate guns any way possible.

    Of course. The attitude there among the powers that be is, do this, or else we'll make a criminal out of you and take the rest of your guns away from you.
