    It's an idotic law. The legislature lizards know that it's useless as a law enforcement tool. This is nothing more than government infringing on our 2nd Amendment rights.

    what the scumbags want is to pass this crap and then try to ban the possession of any gun that does not have this feature

    its the same with "smart guns"

    its a tactic to ban the possession of existing guns.

    Re: Gun microstamping could close American factories

    For anyone who thinks microstamping is a good idea, here's why it isn't...

    There are already around 300 million guns in existence that do not have microstamping technology, so the impact of new weapons with it would be trivial. Also, most guns used in crimes are not used by their original owner... they are stolen or have been resold so many times you could not trace them.

    Microstamping does not work if shell casings aren’t automatically ejected from the crime gun. Revolvers, derringers, double-barrel shotguns, pump shotguns and rifles, and semi-automatic firearms that can be equipped with inexpensive brass catchers (common among some shooters) would leave no cartridges at the scene of a shooting.
    •Microstamping does not work because firing pins are inexpensive and easy to replace. The firing pin for most weapons are easily replaced by someone with a minimum of ability to read and follow the basic cleaning directions for his firearm. The expense of millions of dollars in retooling is thwarted by the purchase of a $12 part.
    •Microstamping does not work because the stamping is easily defaced. It would take a matter of a half-dozen passes of a standard diamond file, and less than a minute, to eradicate the microstamping.

    -Microstamping is incredibly fragile. The stamping would wear out over time through simple use of the firearm, or be thwarted by the normal powder residue that builds up on small parts.
    -Microstamping could easily be spoofed and waste police time — or worse, send the wrong people to jail. Most shooters do not reload their own ammunition, and leave their shell casings at the range. All it would take to turn microstamping to a criminal’s advantage would be for a criminal or one of his associates to pick up brass from a firing range in the same caliber as the weapon he carries. After he uses a microstamping-free weapon in a crime, he would merely drop the brass he recovered from Joe Citizen at the range at the crime scene. Joe will wake up with a SWAT team crashing through his door at 5:00 a.m., and if he’s lucky, innocent Joe won’t be gunned down along with his family pets.
    Oh look, another attempt 2nd Amendment infringing, business hurting, completely ineffective attempt at "Reasonable" (:roll) gun control created by morons who don't understand the basics of gun mechanics.

    Just take a casing from the range, reload it, use it in a crime and the will have a law abiding citizen in jail in moments, guns confiscated permanently.

    Take a handfull of casings from the range, mount a brass catcher on your weapon, throw the other guy's casing n the ground and let someone else do the time for you crime.

    One case you can make for this is that only intelligent and responsible gun owners would know that all they need to do is switch firing pin, do think your average gang member who is just given a gun would, probably not.
