The DEMONRATS come up with MORE crap. This better not get signed into law! California has passed a law like this but it's in the SCOTUS right now. 

 

New bill bans pistol sales unless they can microstamp their bullets

A dozen House Democrats are backing a measure mandating pistols sold by licensed dealers be capable of stamping a code on their ammunition at firing.

Introduced as the Make Identifiable Criminal Rounds Obvious (MICRO) Act last month, the proposal would strip the ability of federal firearms licensees to sell pistols that do not carry the controversial microstamping technology. Backers argue that as much as 40 percent of murders go unsolved due to lack of evidence, which the bill is meant to address.

“We must do everything we can to ensure gun violence can be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said the bill’s author, U.S. Rep. Anthony Brown, D-Md., in a statement. “Microstamping offers law enforcement the chance to track bullet casings to the source of the crime, and is one more step we can take to ensure the safety of the American people.”

They already got away with it out in Kalifornia quite some time back. Go visit your LGS and tell us how many NIB Rugers you find.

Not completely, it's in SCOTUS right now.  Hopefully they LOSE.

You sure? Because when Cali made it a law, Ruger and S&W ceased sales in that state. And true to nature, Smith caved.

Ummm...check the date: https://bearingarms.com/bob-o/2014/01/23/smith-wesson-officially-becomes-the-second-gun-company-to-pull-out-of-california-over-microstamping/

It's in the California Supreme Court, not SCOTUS. Me bad.

Which was dismissed in 2015 by the court of appeals.

California Supreme Court to review microstamping challenge

3/23/17| by Chris Eger 

The state’s high court announced Wednesday it will weigh the case of two firearms industry groups who contend the state’s microstamping mandate is terminally flawed.

The California Supreme Court voted during its petition conference this week to review the case taking on the state’s 2007 unsafe handgun modification requirements.

The suit was originally brought in 2014 by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, who insisted the legal requirement for semi-auto handguns to mark cartridges with a microscopic array of characters, that identify the make, model and serial number of the pistol upon firing was, “impossible to accomplish.” The groups argued that the technology was unproven in actual field conditions and easy for criminals to defeat.

California Superior Court Judge Donald Black dismissed the case in 2015. In his ruling, Black cited the doctrine of sovereign immunity precluded the argument of the gun industry groups that “the law never requires impossibilities,” and felt the groups lacked standing to sue.

On a subsequent appeal to the California 5th Appellate District, a three-judge panel found last December that NSSF and SAAMI have “a right to present evidence to prove their claim.”

Whatever. I'm just glad I'm not out there anymore. Didn't I just see a blurb warning people not to bring their guns into the state?

That "doctrine of sovereign immunity" that the judge cited when he dismissed the lawsuit filed by the NSSF just tells me he's a strong proponent of Calexit. Might be time for you to lose all your guns in a tragic boating accident?
