Ammunition coding will drive costs to unafordable levels. This is nothing more than anti-gun activism in disguise.

I did not read all the bills, but a few talk of not only endoding ammo for certain firearms, but those individuals without the encoded ammo must get rid of any in storage by a date in 2011...
The NRA will be jumping all over this garbage.

Indiana also, but introduced in 2008 and won't go anywhere!

Thank god my state is not listed. What is wrong with these gun antis. I am getting real sick of the crap.
When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid.
The minority is trying to push their Views over on the majority. What a waste of tax payer money for something that the majority of people do not want. No wonder we are running out of money.
Mine is not thank you but......
I would not worry too much about any of it.
My man just got an email!!
Ain't no fun when the rabbit has a gun!
I'm actually surprised to find mine but I'm not worried about it now. Got other things to worry about.
Mines not on the list, but even if it were I'd not worry about it, since that legislation was from 2008.

We tend to laugh at stuff like this.
Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

Alabama's bill is dead. Had about a snowball's chance in Mobile of passing.
I did read the bill, and it was one of the least well thought out pieces of legislation I've seen. Which is saying something.
There was no provision regarding private sale/trade of ammunition, no provision regarding casting bullets by an individual non-commercial vendor, and even the "vendors" would only have to keep records for seven years.
Forget about the tax ("0.005 cent per bullet) which would never cover the cost of administration.
On the other hand, this year there is a bill to mandate that the sales tax on firearms and ammunition cannot exceed that levied on food (as in groceries, not restaurants.) There is also a bill (annually shot down) to remove/reduce the tax on food, which if they both passed would mean no sales taxes on firearms or ammunition.
I'm not holding my breath.

I keep hearing folks say we should not worry about such ridiculous stuff, it's from a different year or we laugh at this type of stuff.
I hear you my friends. Just remember 200 years ago, our founding fathers never thought our Government would be doing to us what they are today either.
As the anti's continue to put their elected officials into office at alarming rates they will continue to introduce these ridiculous bills and one day, those ridiculous bills will be real bills and the joke will be on us for standing by and laughing at them.
