Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government

On January 22nd renowned gun maker Smith & Wesson joined Sturm, Ruger, & Co., by announcing it would cease California sales of its semi-automatic pistols due to micro-stamping requirements that went into effect last year.

Ruger made the same announcement earlier this month.

Microstamping is a requirement that each firearm be fitted with a special firing pin that leaves a fingerprint on a bullet casing which differs from the fingerprint of every other firearm. In other words–every one of the wildly popular Smith & Wesson M&P .45 semi-automatic handguns would have to be manufactured in such a way so that no two of them left the same mark on a shell casing.

The cost of doing this would be incredibly high to manufacturers, and would be a cost they would have to pass on to consumers in higher prices.

Moreover, the result of doing this would be yet another gun registry–every gun sold that met micro-stamping requirements would have to be to registered so that the government knew who owned the gun that left that fingerprint.

Business is starting to fight back against an out of control state government.

The bad is now innocent citizens are being put at increasing risk.  The bad guys don't care about laws.  The bad guys will enjoy this as it means their victim is less likely to be able to defend themselves.  Bad guys love this!
