Where liberty dwells, there is my country." Benjamin Franklin
They should all come to the gun friendly states down South, where they probably belong.
I I decide to knock someone off.
I go to the range, pick up some shell casings the same caliber as I am going to use, shoot the guy and drop the casings I picked up.
Or I use a revolver and no casings will be left at the scene.
NE Mississippi would be a good place to locate. Shipping on the Tenn/Tom waterway or a good center point for railroad shipping.
Ah the liberal mindset. ID for ammo, when it won’t make much difference. No ID for voters when it would.
Glad I won’t be here when they get around to the ID that goes in the right hand or forehead. It can’t be much longer now, things are accelerating.
Kimber Manufacturing (my 1911s) is in Yonkers, NY. I’d think that they’d be looking to GTH out of there, too.
The examples I have seen do not appear to be firing pins but another part on the that stamps the area near the rim and does a lot of damage to the cartridge. It might eliminate reloading because of the damage.
Texas, the one word for those companies to keep in the front of the minds.
Texas, By the Grace of God.
I would LOVE to have them here in Colorado. We have a fantastic manufacturing base, a well educated population, and all the land they could ever need to set up shop and a shooting range (hint, hint).
That is the last sentence of the article.
What they do not say is the only way to make it work is a database of gun owners by make model and serial number.
Without that there is no way to trace it, so it is also back door gun registration.
A file, 30 seconds, and it’s gone. Where does this make any sense? What criminal would leave it in place? This is the stupidest idea I have ever heard of.
Apparently liberals think that criminals who hot-wire cars, defeat home alarm systems, and steal credit card info are too stupid to use steel wool on firing pins...
Please, Colt and or Remington move to Texas. We are a large firearms market, business friendly, low cost of living, committed to personal freedom and great food. Come on down and you will stay.
And, microstamping wears off in a relative few number of rounds fired. It is bogus dolt technology, only promoted to make people feel safe when they are not.
if it is patented then SOMEBODY is going to be making money and the government is picking a croney winner.
WHO PAID who to force people to use this?
the inventor must have been unable to sell it on the free market so now the inventor is forcing the sale of this USELESS tech on the makers.
time to expose the money trail.
There are so many ways around gun control laws. A little knowledge, research and ability provides anyone with the will to completely avoid the government in gun transactions. For instance, and this is completely legal, one could build a M24 (a weapon used by Army snipers), or a close facsimile, without the government knowing. To do so, one needs to buy a Remington 700 for the basis of the M24 build from an individual, not a gun dealer or store. There are 5 million 700's in the US, most of which are used for hunting, so they are sighted in once a year, and if the hunter is skillful, used to take game ... So maybe 30 rounds are passed thought the barrel in a year. Thus, it is easy to purchase a 700 in very good condition to use its action to make an even better weapon. (A model 700, unaltered, is a fine weapon on its own.) The rest of the parts to build a M24 are not controlled or restricted in anyway by law and are readily available over the Internet or at a gun show; where you can use cash for a purchase.
The real danger in NY and CT's anti gun legislation is that the folks that make a good and satisfying living making weapons for Colt and Remington will lose their jobs, or will have to move with their companies. If anti-gun legislation is taken to extremes, those companies will move offshore. Remington and Colt should immediately start talking about moving their operations to Mexico. It would be interesting to see what would happen if Army and Marine sniper weapons and all M16's and most M4's are built in Mexico.
I don’t understand why Colt has not departed Connecticut for better pastuers yet.As a citizen of Connecticut you can’t even by an AR-15 that has any semblence to an M-16.
Not that I need a Bayonet lug or the need to operate it on full-auto.But this Government Dictates that the rifle can’t even have a flash suppressor.What a bunch of worthless SOB’s we have in the STATE Government in Connecticut.
Colt should leave as soon as Possible.
The gun manufacturers should open bids for states that want their business, and do so publicly and loudly. Several states will be more than happy to offer them impressive concessions.
Then the gun manufacturers can buy advertising in their current states, identifying those politicians by name and how much tax money and jobs their state will be losing.
As it comes down to the wire, offer big discounts to the people of their state for guns that do not microstamp, in a “blow out sale”.
