    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.
    I have no problem with the ban on lead ammo. Lead has been banned for many years for waterfowl hunting and any place where waterfowl congregate.

    Lead poisoning was a huge problem leading to the deaths of thousands of waterfowl every year. Lead substitutes are readily available for shotguns. It won't be long before lead is outlawed for fishing, and already has in some locations.

    The other laws you mention are typical "feel good" anti-gun, anti-hunting laws.

    Ammunition is a part of arms, hopefully someone challenged it in court. I think as long as that liberal keeps doing liberal things I do not think any republican is ever going to openly push for allowing foreign born citizens to be president.

    "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"

    Re: US Supreme Court agrees to decide whether Second Amendment forbids local handgun

    I shoot a .22LR pistol hundreds of rounds per week. All of it is in an indoor range with all the required ventilation filters and bullet traps. All bullets are captured and recycled. Having a lead free requirement is ridiculous under the conditions that I shoot in. It also raises the price of ammunition from $15 for 500 rounds to $155 for lead free rounds. And most manufacturers don't even have lead free ammunition at all.

    So what we have here is not a case of protecting the environment but a case of pretending to protect the environment as an excuse to effectively price gun usage out of the range of a vast number of people. The new restrictions on internet ammunition sales, mail order sales and administrative costs to be absorbed by the ammunition seller are nothing more than a harassment tactic to try to get people to stop exorcising their rights.

    I will agree to pay the extra for ammunition if the same requirements imposed on my 2nd amendment rights are placed on all politicians.

    1. You must be finger printed every time you make a speech or communicate with your peers. (Finger printing required for every ammunition sale.)

    2. Your statements must all be recorded and made available for inspection at any time. (Recording requirement for all ammunition sales.)

    3. You must pay a confiscatory tax every time you speak. (Lead Free requirement for most of the state.)

    4. You may not speak or communicate over state lines. (Banning of mail order or internet purchases of ammunition and reloading supplies.)

    5. You may not speak except about the most popular topics. (to be similar to not being able to purchase ammunition except for the most popular types stocked in most stores.)

    6. Failure to live up to these rules could result in huge fines, or jail time. (Just to keep the punishment the same as for a store clerk who misfiles an ammunition sales form.)

    Any liberal takers for my negotiations?
