WTF...this is stupid.
I believe we have a National Emergency underway regarding attempts to force serialization of bullets etc. through out the country as a follow on to Californias passage of similar legislation.
We must contact everyone we know and all of our political hacks to nip it in the bud if still possible. The following Email text was my first knowledge of the attempt in Arizona.
" " You will love this......... Ammunition registration?
Have you heard of this insane Arizona House Bill (HB 2833) requiring that all ammunition sold in Arizona be engraved with an individual serial number?
Encoded ammunition would be registered to the purchaser (date of birth, drive license number, etc).
The link to the bill is:
Any bets on the political affiliation of the moron that introduced this bill........................??? "
Write your state legislatures and stop this nonsense before it is to late.
WTF...this is stupid.
I am bumping my post because this is being put forth in several states and needs to be stopped. It is people like you and I that can stop it but we need to act if it is to be stopped.
I reitterate, please contact your State Representatives and let them know we will not stand for this nonsense.
If you don't think it can happen in your state just look at what the Governator signed in California. I am not a betting man but will certainly bet that many California residents wish they had voiced their opinion.
How many times is history going to have to repeat itself before people get it??? Gun control is the biggest proven failure of crime prevention there is. I mean seriously, how can anyone think that making it impossible to get guns and ammunition is going to stop criminals from obtaining them and using them? This is just like the policy at my university. They think banning the carry of deadly weapons makes us safer because it keeps riot shooters from carrying their weapons on campus. It doesn't take a smart person to figure this stuff out.
The ironic part about you and me not knowing the "REAL" motivation is that the idiots pushing for these amendments don't either. If you ask them face-to-face why they feel this crap is in the best interest of America, they'd give you the same gibberish George W. gave when asked about soverign entities.
It seems to me that a well written letter to your representitives is in order. It shouldn't be difficult to describe how this will not prevent any murders in AZ.
My hope is that most of you on this and other forums will write to your political reps and squash this rediculous move before it grows legs.
WOW...thats going to drive the cost of ammo way up. Freakin Libs
Further, control and prohibition laws shift the blame onto manufacturers and law-abiding users (of whatever product, be it guns or booze or tobacco).
It's all based upon this basic fraud: It's easy to make a law. It's very hard to actually solve a problem.
Thank you for the link TOF. I was unaware of the similar bill in NYS.
So far Florida's not on the list but I'LL bet it will not be to long.
I figured Kalifornia and the Communistwealth of Massachusetts would be on this list. Some of the States listed just don't make sense.

The nations #1 drunk/killer (KENNDY) is already hollering up on the hill for micro-stamping of ammo. He said it's already a proven technology. California just passed it and it don't go into afect till 2010 so how could it be proven.
Proven or not, just because something can be done doesn't mean it should be done.
It's been proven that Kennedy can get drunk and drown a person. Should we let him do it again?
