    I understand the "slippery slope": issue some other posters have here and I'm sympathetic. I'll just point out that any lawmaker can propose any law. There are gazillions of new laws proposed every 5 minutes. The job title of a politician is a LAWMAKER. Hopefully, the wacky proposals don't go anywhere.
    And, when lawmakers propose dumbass laws like this, it's the duty of the people to speak up, before those propositions become actual laws.

    Not everyone thinks that way. Some people actually think that enacting a few regulations would make people safer. They figure that the law would solve at least a few crimes. It probably won't, but I can see the logic of it.

    So, really, why do they do it? I agree it makes no sense so why do they bother? Where's the money?

    Anti-2nd amendment loons work in baby steps.The goal is not to disarm the criminal.The goal is to disarm the law abiding citizen.
    "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"

    I don't think anyone has to be smart to see that micro-stamping won't do anything to reduce,stop or solve crime.

    There might be a few people at home and not in politics who genuinely believe that, but most likely those people rode the short bus to school or had their head bashed in thus making them 'special'.

    I live in an area of Florida that is currently low on jobs (kinda like the rest of the country). We have access to I-10, railroads, and aren't far from I-75. We are IN the South. Shipping is easy. Come build your factories here Remington. Not only would you be building in an area that purchases a lot of what you make, you would be manufacturing firearms in a pro-gun state that isn't run by union mobsters and police state lovers. We just get the dying leftovers, but they don't actually run the state.

    I ask again - WHY? What's the benefit? Why would you only want criminals armed? There must be some reason.

    I've seen politicians advocate for far dumber laws.
