"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
CA has a micro stamping law in place that is set to take effect Jan. 1, 2010. It was passed in 2007 and signed by that RINO Schwarzenegger.

Never mind that the technology is not reliable enough to garner certification as being 100% reliable. Never mind that no manufacturer has started working on implementing micro stamping on any weapon.
Also signed on the same day was a law outlawing any ammunition that contains any amount of lead in the majority of hunting areas in California. The problem with this is that almost every bullet contains at least a small amount of lead in the metal alloy that the bullet is made from. While this law does not ban guns, it does make shooting them tremendously more expensive.
There is another bill that is on his desk now that would require fingerprinting every time you buy ammunition in CA. It would also ban mail order or internet sales of ammunition or reloading supplies. Again, this would not ban guns but would make it almost impossible to get ammunition for many of the less common types and sizes of ammunition. If you can't get ammunition, you can't use your gun. So expect to see more of these types of laws designed to do an end run around the 2nd amendment.
California AB 962: Ban all mail-order and Internet sales of handgun ammunition.
"The bill is on the desk of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, where it awaits his consideration. He will have until Oct. 11 to sign or veto the bill. If he does not veto the bill, it will become law."
Expect to see him take no action which will be the same as signing it.
