CA already passed a microstamping bill. Every year, there are fewer and fewer models of handguns which are on the CA AG's roster of guns approved for sale in the state. The roster requires that that a gun's listing be renewed periodically. As the state has added regulations that are impossible to comply with, manufacturers have gradually stopped resubmitting their pistols for the approval and addition to the roster. The microstamping bill is the last straw. As the guns come due for resubmission to the AG's office to renew their roster listing, the manufacturers are throwing in the towel.narcissist wrote: ↑Fri Sep 20, 2019 6:22 pmDidn't realize it, ive noticed even glock now has multiple "hidden" serial numbers but makes sense what you said about not solving crimes/waste of time. I did hear about the "dumb" guns but gotta check out that micro stamping bull.ScottDLS wrote: ↑Fri Sep 20, 2019 6:06 pmMaryland already did this. It turned out to be completely useless didn’t help solve any crimes and was a colossal waste of time. It’s so easy to alter or swap the barrel. Next up, micro stamping and smart (aka dumb) guns.narcissist wrote: ↑Fri Sep 20, 2019 5:51 pmWait until they start forcing Manufacturers of every gun made after a certain date to fire one round out of the gun. To have it logged kept with the serial number, buyers info and they will probably force us to use a FFL to transfer the gun. Which would be registration but also a way to track exactly (in their eyes) who used it in a crime. Also I bet they add even if the gun is lost or stolen you are Still responsible for whoever uses it in a crime. I believe with Class lll items you are responsible if its lost or stolen and used in a crime, Im not 100% sure even though I own a few? Paranoid thinking, cant help it
