looks like wheel gun sales are going to go up :shot:TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend the penal law, in relation to
requiring semiautomatic pistols manufactured or delivered to any
licensed dealer in this state to be capable of microstamping
When a subcommittee reads its recommendation to the rest of their http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_does_ordering_a_bill_reported_mean#house of CongressWhat does reported mean?
The bill says the stamp must be done on the cartridge in 2 places. It does not specify the firing pin be one of the devices which makes one of the markings.Interesting to note that they'll allow for the changing of a firing pin for safety or sporting reasons, but there's no clause for changing the barrel which has the chamber as part of its manufacture.
Careful what you joke about. Chucky Schemer has been pushing that for years..*severe sarcasm mode*
Hey, y'know, if they just serilized ammunition to begin with then made people show a permit or FOID card to purchase it, then log the weapon information at the time of ammunition sales they could forgo the whole microstamping thing all together.
your real question is, will it ever work. The answer is no, it a humongous waste of money. But it's not their money, so waste awayJust a few questions about microstamping What if your spent brass is picked up at the range and left at a crime scene? Will steel cased ammo deface the stamp? will reloaded shell casings be weakened by repeated stamps to the case? Will it eventually be illegal to reload since the new stamp may hit the old stamp and render both unreadable?
