Government Waste

Gun ID legislation may trigger exodus of gunmakers Remington, Colt
Microstamping, or ballistic imprinting, is a patented process that uses laser technology to engrave a tiny marking of the make, model and serial number on the tip of a gun’s firing pin to allow an imprint of that information on spent cartridge cases. Supporters of the technology say it will be a "game changer," allowing authorities to quickly identify the registered guns used in crimes. Opponents claim the process is costly, unreliable and may ultimately impact the local economies that heavily depend on the gun industry, including Ilion, N.Y., where Remington Arms maintains a factory, and Hartford, Conn., where Colt's manufacturing is headquartered.
First of all, Remington and Colt should have moved out of those states a long time ago, what they're still doing there, I don't know.

Second, did they ever stop to think that right after they implement their "game changer" technology, criminals would just sand off the tip of the firing pin or install a different pin? Criminals can say, "game changer," too. They already sand off the serial numbers or just use a stolen gun.

Third, this is a complete waste of time and money.

Criminals - political or street - don't want citizens to have guns. Why? Because people with guns can fight back. Why do you think the mafia stronghold of the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area is one big gun-free zone? Chicago, too. Think about it.
