Rep. Kathy W Stein,
I think we all know that the Ammunition Encoding will do nothing to stop criminals. If criminals followed laws, they would not be criminals in the first place. Theft of legally purchased encoded ammunition will skyrocket (oh boy, yet another thing that criminals will be forced to steal.)
I have an idea; why doesn’t the Government give the underprivileged criminals their own encoded ammunition so they can be tracked and leave the law-abiding citizens to purchase, reload and shoot regular ammunition.
Or better yet; if you don’t pass the background check to own a firearm, you are only allowed to purchase encoded ammo. If you do legally own a firearm, you qualify to purchase regular ammo.
We all know that this bill is just another road block designed to sabotage gun owners. Quit punishing law-abiding citizens and making up fancy laws that mean to squash our second amendment rights. Free is free. You can’t have it both ways. If I can kill my unborn baby, then I should be able to own & carry a firearm.
