What Would Microstamping Ammo Do
to Stop Violent Gun Crime? ... Nothing!

By F Riehl. May 29, 2021

In the immortal words of New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra, "It's dájà vu all over again." Anti-Second Amendment forces are at it once more, attempting to get the jump on enforcing the "Microstamping" of all semiautomatic handguns.

It is a curious thing that, with rising violent crime in Democrat-controlled jurisdictions, Democrats continue to blame society's violence on firearms. They blame rising violent crime on the police. They blame it on "systemic racism." They blame it on "white supremacists." They blame it on Trump. They blame it on Republicans. They "Blame It On The Bossa Nova."

The Democrats in Congress and in the States, along with the teeming mass of Progressives and Marxists throughout the Country and the seditious Press, continue to blame society's ills on anyone and anything but where the fault truly rests;

On themselves and on their own miserable, flawed, bankrupt political, social, and economic philosophy, grounded on the tenets of Collectivism.

In an article posted recently on AmmoLand News, the NRA-ILA pointed to the Democrat Party-controlled State Legislature in Albany that will soon vote on three Anti-Second Amendment bills that recently passed out of Senate Committee. One of these three bills, the Microstamping of semiautomatic handguns, is nothing new. California was the first out of the gate with this when then California Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, signed it into law in 2007.

An odd thing about that 2007 California law, apart from the fact that it would do nothing to reduce gun crime, is that it could never be enforced because the microstamping technology has patent law protection. .....
