Micro-stamping passes in the broke and broken People’s
Republic Democracy of California!
Of course, anyone familiar with this kind of ‘technology’ and gun control legislation knows that it’s expensive, extremely flawed, and can be defeated.
But that never stopped the rights-control freaks, previously.
C.D. Michel, the NRA’s West Coast regional attorney, had a much grimmer prediction.
“This is not going to help solve crimes,” he said. “It’s easily defeated, easily wears out and can be used to lead police down false alleys” if the serial numbers are altered.
Worse yet, Michel said, manufacturers will be unwilling to add this expensive feature to guns sold in a single state, and will instead keep manufacturing weapons for the other states, where demand already far exceeds supply. The effect, he said, would be a ban on new semiautomatic handguns in California, which the NRA will challenge in court.
And, I predict (parodying the President’s statement regarding his energy policy) that the sales of revolvers in California will necessarily skyrocket!
