    Think about it a minute and you'll have the obvious answer.


    The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters.

    BG picks up your brass at the range and tosses it on the ground at the crime scene.

    Micro stamping would require registration

    Micro stamping would increase cost
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Just off the cuff after working last night with a terrible headache. If you think ammo is expensive now! If this happens the way I understand it, it would nuke people like us. I think that is the main idea behind it all from the left as always. Make it hurt and hurt bad for us. The ammo manufacturers would have no choice but to pass their re-tooling costs onto us, the consumers who just follow the rules.
    It would be very expensive for the manufacturers to incur a hit like that. Then we get hit! Am I wrong?

    Criminals tend to steal ammo, not register it.

    Ya know, I don't mind that the "anti's" are scheming to use this as a tactic to disarm the polulation. I expect no other behavior from them.

    What bothers me is folks who honestly think this will address gun crime. This is one of those ideas that takes 'stupid' to whole new levels.

    Nothing on the ammo would change, the cartridge gets stamped with make/model/serial of the gun after it is fired... so gun costs would go up since every single breech and firing pin would have to be customized.

    This is a big issue in NY right now as there is a bill on the table right now that would require manufacturers who wish to sell semi-autos in NY to implement this technology,

    And I thank you for setting me straight. You are right the change is in the weapon not the ammo. Like I said bad night and this subject made my melon ache worse. Thanks again fastk9dad!

    It sort of strikes me as a pretty stupid idea. Post 3 gets to the important point.

    Also, notwithstanding all the forensic stuff on TV, I sort of wonder if things like this would have any real impact on crime solving.

    +1.

    I think you are plagiarizing from the California State Legistlature's Motto: "Taking Stupid to the Next Level since 1850."

    The NYS ballistic database (one fired cartridge is kept/cataloged from every handgun sold) that is 10 years old and costs ~$4mil a year says no, as it has yet been used to solve a crime.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
