They can do that now. They have the ability to have it so only a LEO can fire his own gun (or anybody and their gun). There is a RFID in the gun and only will fire if in close proximity to the a bracelet the person wears.

^ Talk about trust issues with your weapon. I already have the occasional dream where I need my gun, and it wont fire LOL Now I have to worry about the batteries in my bracelet?
All you gotta do if yer a bad guy,besides probably having a stolen gun in the first place is pick up brass at a firing range and liberally dispense around the crime scene,and or use a revolver that doesn't automatically eject brass,I really don't see this ever working,since there are millions of guns that are out in public hands without any micro stamping

Woooaah. I had no idea about this. Wikipedia just told me that California passed micro stamping into law back in 2007, but that it is currently on hold at the moment for some reason. This is crazy. You watch, if and when more states pass this they will start forbidding you to change out your firing pin or any other micro stamped part unless you get it through a licensed dealer or something. Next they will forbid you to shoot anywhere but a range, and brass will have to be properly disposed of so that your brass can't be picked up by a bad guy, and then they will forbid reloading as well. You watch. I am so disappointed in California right now, but that's nothing new.

They just came out with a new technology that easily defeats microstamping. You don't have to replace the firing pin and it doesn't leave spent casings at the scene of the crime.
The good thing is that it will be difficult for criminals to get their hands on if the legislation is ever passed.

This is how a legislator thinks:
1. Can I help push this without losing my job next election?
2. If it looks like it CAN happen I need to make sure my "business friends" know about it and can invest in (or buy up) the companies that will stamp bullets, make imprint readers, etc.
3. Then we pass a carefully-worded law that makes only certain businesses (wink, wink) eligible to do the stamping "correctly", and everyone on the inside track is already positioned to make bank.
...or am I just being cynical?

Problem with the vid is that the stamping is also on the breachface of the gun so the imprint is also in the brass, not just the primer.

The firing pin in my AR is not the original. More expensive option, but WAY easier.
My 2 cents, if you wish to shoot someone with a firing pin micro stamped, go to the local range pick up some spent brass. shoot that person and throw down the brass you collected at the range and take your spent case with you and drop it in the river. to many what if's here.
but in a bad situation, learning how to make a back-up firing pin. is good knowledge. Knowledge to have in your bugout bag.
