I can't think of a much dumber law...

So, look, if by some miracle the forces of darkness idiocy manage to pass some corny ammo serialization law here in a state where you can get a slip that lets you carry a gun in bars for the rest of your life for about $100, I'm not going to destroy my old ammo, okay?

Not by 2011; not ever. Not gonna happen, at least until I've shot it all up at my own pace. It's mine, I paid for it, and you can't have it.

If your goofy legislation passes you can just pencil my name in on the arrest warrant now, sport.

I don't think they'd like how a lot of us "destroyed" our non-serialized ammo...

I've around 1000 200gr. .45 LRN & LSWC bullets sitting on a shelf in from of me. I've another 1000 I've also a couple thousand 185gr JHP also in .45acp and similar number of 155gr LTC in .40S&W. Add to that several thousand large and small pistol primers and brass. It would be some time before I have to buy any ammo. I'd get a 20rd box for my carry pistol and that'd be it.

An idiot here in Missouri filed a similar bill this year. She didn't survive the election and the bill is stuck in committee. The 'pubs rule the Missouri House and Senate 3 to 2.

Gee ... exactly what are they going to do to get us bullet casters to comply?

Lawyer: "Those are all fishing weights, your Honor."

Although I suspect thew don't care ... they'll get the ammo off of WalMart shelves, and then worry about fine tuning it to jail malcontents like me.

Does that mean if I have serialized cartridge cases, I'm O.K. reloading them?
And can I turn them in when they're worn out and get new ones with the same S/N for no charge?
What about the bajillion rounds of surplus sitting around?
I'm guesstimating a cost of about $1.50 per cartridge case for laser marking. Times 6 billion rounds of .22rf sold each year in the U.S.
How much does a laser marking machine cost? Somebody's gonna' get rich off this one.

Eh, it makes as much sense as requiring speakers to use their name or some ID number to be able to speak.

Yet another gun grabbing wanna be group pushing "sample legislation." Folks like these put out "samples," mostly to justify their existence to their deluded donor base. Yup, that's how they make sure they keep getting a paycheck.

Of course, decent folk need to keep track of bills introduced in their own legislatures, and punish - or re-educate - those dumb enough to take the anti's bait and actually introduce such silliness.

Eternal vigilance, folks.

Ed: "What about the bajillion rounds of surplus sitting around?"

It becomes illegal, which is (part of) the point of this exercise.

Yeah, that scumbag Russ Ford is gonna get rich. He's the one who came up with this "technology" although even he admits, it's not quite ready to implement yet. What a douchebag. I hope he gets his nuts chewed off by rabid squirrels looking for a light snack.

Legislation like this should be written on the big white mint and introduced at superbowl halftime.

They cannot have my cache of 1972 Yugo 5.54x39 or 1952 Ecudorian 8MM without causing themselves too much distress.

I will serialize my own ammo with an engraver.
Is serial number one taken?
Thats a whole lotta 1's.

Nobody's ever heard of Ex Post Facto?

I live in a former free state ( Colorado ) and nothing nowadays will supprise me

"Nobody's ever heard of Ex Post Facto?"

Nobody in D.C., that's for sure...

Matt G said...

Yeah, Dad and I prepped our Square Deal for some 158g .38 Spl LRNs this morning. We weren't too interested in stamping serial numbers, or rights. (smirk)

One thing's fer sure, people will be much more conscientious about policing up their brass at the range.

Please, nobody tell the idiots that write these laws that rebolbers don't leave cartridge cases at the crime scene, okay?

OK. Here goes, and the lady whose living room I'm saying this in probably will not like it, but, if this excrement goes that far, I'm going to initiate the shooting.

If this puts me in that "Three Percenters" column, I just don't give a damn. There is principle regarding this matter, and those who'd hang others for victimless, "paper" crimes deserve to be hunted and put down like the tyrants they are.

Is this state or federal legislation? I doubt it will do any good to wright Andre Carson (my congresman) Just like his grandma a pupet for the democrats always a party line vote.

Kristopher said...

I guess the best way to deal with this crap is to push pro-liberty bills.

If they push for serialization, push for government issued .308, and a requirement to own a .308 rifle in order to vote.

Give them something to complain about, so they have less time to make up new shit.

"Give them something to complain about..."


How about a written test on civics? That'd keep about 90% of the electorate away from the god-damned voting lever!

Anonymous said...

This kind of stuff just plain scares the shit out of me and makes me furious at the same time. -=sigh=-
How about putting some teeth into some real capital punishment initiatives instead of once again attempting to punish and rape the average law abiding citizen?!?! Stinking liberal gun (or ammo) grabbing pukes, it would only be fair if every one of those bastards got voted out of office after making up such bullshit legislation....

The way to beat this, if implemented, is to corrupt the database- spread your fired cases far and wide, pick 'em up , dump them all over the inner city, toss 'em from bridges, scatter 'em out your car window, and tell all your friends to do likewise. After one month of this all the data would be so mixed up as to be meaningless.
Anybody remember the last ammo registration we had to go through? Filling out the book with name and address when we purchased ammo?And how it was repealed after 10 years because even the cops had to admit it had never, not once, been used to secure a conviction?

Here's another thought ... hold "ammo swaps" where you exchange ammo of like caliber and make with strangers, anonymously.

Or have ammo "pools" with your friends and shooting buddies.

Or "regift" ammo to eachother.
