Microstamping bill introduced at National Level

New Microstamping Legislation Introduced
 
Friday, February 08, 2008
 
This week, Senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA) and Congressman Xavier Becerra (D-CA) introduced "microstamping" legislation titled the "National Crime Gun Identification Act of 2007."   The bill is co-sponsored in the Senate by Senators Feinstein (D-CA), Menendez (D-NJ), Lautenberg (D-NJ), Durbin (D-IL), Schumer (D-NY), and Reed (D-RI).

Commenting on the bill's introduction, Kennedy said, "Micro-stamping ammunition is an important and effective method of tracing guns, and provides law enforcement with a much-needed resource in solving crimes."

Actually, microstamping has never been implemented.  Legislation was passed in California at the end of last year, but has not been implemented.  Therefore, claiming it is an "effective method" is not correct.  On the contrary, there are numerous and varied problems with micro-stamping (for additional information on those flaws, please click here: http://www.nraila.org/Issues/FactSheets/Read.aspx?id=223&issue=078).   

The measure has support from the usual gun ban groups, such as the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, the Brady Campaign, and others.

I don't feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.  John Wayne

Let me get this straight.... If they put a mechanism on the firing pin to stamp the primer with identifying marks then someone will just get a different firing pin or alter it. Right?

(insert mulitple obscenities here) If people figured out how to drill out serial numbers after the FBI learned how to raise filed off numbers? How easy will it be to defeat this?

Microstamping and other technologies aren't the answer. Guns don't kill people THUGS DO. Fiddling with TOOLS wont change the mindset of certain groups that crime and murder are legitimate options.

Large segments of our culture are out of control. Any ideas?

Another reason why I continue to keep my NRA membership up to date.
