Federal Bill Blocks Pistol Sales Lacking Microstamping Technology

By NRA-ILA: Federal Bill Blocks Pistol Sales Lacking Microstamping Technology!  Microstamping is supposed to stop crime. The idea is that each round will be stamped with a number unique to the firearm and thus making it easier for the police to catch those who use guns in violent crimes.

Unfortunately, the technology is expensive, unreliable, and controversial. That won’t stop some politicians from trying yet again to require its use.

Introduced as the Make Identifiable Criminal Rounds Obvious (MICRO) Act last month, the proposal would strip the ability of federal firearms licensees to sell pistols that do not carry the controversial microstamping technology. Backers argue that as much as 40 percent of murders go unsolved due to lack of evidence, which the bill is meant to address.

“We must do everything we can to ensure gun violence can be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said the bill’s author, U.S. Rep. Anthony Brown, D-Md., in a statement. “Microstamping offers law enforcement the chance to track bullet casings to the source of the crime, and is one more step we can take to ensure the safety of the American people.”

  1. And just how does that address the act itself???
    Ya wanna put a major dent in murder?!
    Execute the murders.
    If potential killers know they will die of caught, it will cut down murders.
    And when the gun is stolen?
    How does that help the cops????
    Stupid is as stupid does, including idiotic Bills.

  2. Liberalism is a mental disorder. What about murders committed by using knives, or clubs, rocks or bare fists. Far more of those occur than those with firearms.

    Oh,the criminals committing these murders don”t care one hoot about gun control laws.

    Simply out:

    Criminals don”t obey laws, that’s why they are criminals.

  3. You both are right on!! The politicians seem to become the terrorists against the American people. They want to strip our rights to defend and protect our liberties while they do nothing against the criminals. Making criminals accountable might offend the libertards and the criminals rights. Meanwhile these politicians have their guns, their armed security, etc.

    “Do as I say, not as I do” is more their motto.

  4. What are reloaders who reload casings then find, purchase as “once fired” going to do? Better pick up all your own brass at the range. A criminal could get your brass and scatter it at a crime scene…..

    I agree we need to make harsher penalties for criminals….

  5. Just another obvious attempt to attack the 2nd amendment. I think we all know the communists er ah progressive democrats want all firearms confiscated. They will not stop until either they are successful or until we rid ourselves of them, thus insuring the future of our democratic republic.

  6. Anti gunners are nazi’s their agenda is to disarm all legal abiding citizen. Do they really think criminals are playing by the law? Please don’t insult us with the statement: it will reduce crime and will help Police Officers do ??? If we truly look at the system like Alan mentioned the LEO’s bring them in at the risk of their lives being lost and then they get dropped off into the civilized world. The public should gather as one and demand not request, DEMAND that those claiming to look after our well being step down and stop lying. No where in time has history shown us that evil was ever defeated with compliance to their evil laws,bills and ideologies. Spare me your sophisticated stupidity lies!

  7. If this nonsense gets passed, it’ll make for a really good reason to do what you should be doing anyway and pick up your brass at the range.. Don’t want to leave an opportunity to be framed laying around on the ground just anyone to grab.

  8. I have doubts as to the truthfulness of the reasons given to use this technique. If 40% of murders are unsolved, I suspect there is a variety of reasons as to why they are unsolved and I doubt if microstamping is a solid reason. It seems that lawmakers are not truthful when trying to justify a law.
    Without reliable data, it is impossible to make a valid hypothesis, but I have a strong gut-feeling I am right.

  9. How about a bill that bans criminals from having pistols or any firearms. Oh wait, they aren’t supposed to have them. A criminal does not obey any laws.

  10. There is no real way of tying a particular bullet or casing to a particular gun. Just like barrels, firing pins can be changed – in fact, if you shot as much as I do, you’ve probably changed a barrel or two, broken a firing pin, a spring, any of a number of parts.

    This is just more historical smoke and mirrors – disarm the People, and seize control. Ironically, the unlearned lesson is that that governmental model doesn’t work well and every dictator has fallen, sooner than later.

    Attack the criminals, not the Citizens, if you really are altruistic about creating a better community.

  11. The 2nd amendment is there to protect the citizens from their government and politicians. “Shall not be infringed” means just that. This bill is in constitutional violation of our rights.
    How about a new bill to propose a law that states “Any government entity, representative or agency including state and local governments, does not have any authority, either directly or indirectly, make or implement any law, order, regulation or restriction that effects or diminishes any and all aspects of our constitutional rights under the 2nd amendment. Any attempt to to infringe upon these rights by the government or it’s representatives is a crime. The penalty for committing this crime shall be immediate removal from office and a $100,000.00 fine and 1 year in a federal prison.
    The right of a citizen to restrict the possession of a weapon on their legal property shall not be infringed. All persons convicted of a felony shall be restricted from possessing any weapon of any kind.”
    If a citizen chooses to not have firearms it is their right not to. It is not their right to impose that on any other citizen. It is the same about ones religion. A citizen has no right to impose their religion on others.
    Religion has caused more wars, death, atrocities, inhumane treatment and destruction of societies than firearms ever will.

  12. What a load of crap. What stops some criminal from stealing amunition and using in another gun. Ever hear of ballistics studies that match bullets to guns. This short of stamping effects the free manufacture of ammunition. This would drive up costs by unimaginable prices. This is in violation of 2nd amendment rights to infringement of our rights to self protection. This is also another attempt to punish law abidding gun owners. Forces manufactures to add another costly unreasonable step in manufacturing. I have not heard of a more stupid suggestion, but considering liberals and Dumdbocrats it’s about parr for the course. Just another attempt to disarm law abidding citizens.

  13. What? How stupid are these people? And they get elected? Shame on you! How long do you think it will take before someone figures out how to bypass that. And even if they don’t so what. I’d be willing to bet than a Criminal is going to go by a gun to shoot someone with. They are going to steal one are get it off the black market as they do now. You are only hampering the honest law abiding citizen and making the cost even higher than it is now. But does that matter to a politician who doesn’t spend their own money anyway? No they steal it like Hillary.
    If you want to stop murders, execute the murderer. The gun didn’t kill anyone. It was the one who pulled the trigger. You going to take away everyone’s car because Ted Kennedy used one to murder a lady who he knocked up? More people are killed by cars than guns.

  14. 10 seconds with 600 grit eliminates the mark on MY gun and 5 minutes at the range picking up brass from other people ruins your “evidence”.

    And I am a law-abiding guy … I can’t even imagine what criminals will come up with to defeat this but it will probably work even better with even less effort.
