    Smith and Wesson has decided to stop selling its gun in California over a new law requiring micro stamping of bullets by the gun used to fire it..

    what is curious about this law is that law enforcement is still allowed to buy whatever gun they fucking want .. no stamp required..

    odd that cops don't want the bullets they use traced back to them......

    Say what you will about this law it such a bitch move to exempt cops , making it harder for attorneys to go after trigger happy cops

    What a retarded law. It just created a whole new black market. Instead of smuggling guns and risking Federal agencies, ammo smuggling will allow criminals to make money and only have to worry about state and local police. All why making it more expensive for law abiding gun owners to own firearms and ammo and train properly.

    Well, I think he means the special exemption. They should lead by example, IMO.

    If only you put so much furor into damning the criminals that commit crime as you do the tools that some people use to do so...

    Why? Is it not plausible that an off duty cop has a higher likelihood of people wanting to do him harm...

    CCW holders are 1/3rd as likely to commit murders as police officers. Clearly this stupid law punishes law abiding gun owners, not criminals. Why should cops be exempted from such horse shit? Since when do we assume that cops aren't capable of being criminals?

    Yeah, I know. I'm thinking about it a little more and I keep bumping into the fact that the criminals aren't going to comply so it seems like, once again, it's an onerous burden on the law-abiding gun owners, no?

    Gang bangers can go to any bordering state and buy non-stamped ammo. This is all about discouraging legal gun ownership.

    Besides, revolvers are exempted. So a 7 shot .357 is somehow less dangerous that a 7 round 1911? Or a 10 round .22 revolver less likely to be used by criminals than a ten round Ruger Mk. II? What? Why? That makes no sense.

    Also, guns break down. Replacing firing pins is a normal part of owning a gun. So what, now ever time gun owners break a firing pin, they're going to have to pay to have a new one that tested and scanned into the data base.

    Not to mention that a few passes of a file renders the stamping useless...and the fucking guy who owns the actual patents says that it's far from perfect and not reliable.

    This is a joke. This is the Cali government laughing in the faces of resident gun owners.

    Sounds like another case of legislators writing laws about topics about which they know little to nothing, huh?
