That bill is dead. For now....
This is a discussion on AZ has a bill to mark all ammunition?? within the Defensive Ammunition & Ballistics forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; All old ammo would have to be destroyed by a certain date....
All old ammo would have to be destroyed by a certain date.
HB 2833 (Dead - Failed to move before deadline)
Garcia, M - coded ammunition; state database
Requires ammunition manufacturers to encode an individualized serial number on each bullet base and cartridge case. Possession of non-coded ammunition would be illegal. All ammunition sales would be recorded. A 1/2 cent tax would be added to every round of ammo sold. Manufacturers and vendors would face stiff fines for not-complying.
This bill would effectively end ammunition sales in Arizona.
AzCDL strongly opposes this bill.
That bill is dead, I wonder if it got shot!!! lol
I just read a comment from someone in TX. He said the guy that owns the patent for microstamping ammo is trying very hard to get this passed in every state for obvious personal reasons. Everyone better stay sharp and watch for this.
Same thing was tried here in 2005----died in the house before it got started good.
