This is true. However, what happens when manufactures are required by a stroke of bamma's pen to start serializing bullets? Sure it will still be available for fifty cents more PER ROUND.
But, lets think this through just a wee little bit.
As a cop, I know it doens't have a damn thing to do with reducing crime. The ONLY justification to serializing bullets is to register ammo. Period.
So, lets look at the next step. What good is serializing and registering ammo if guys like you and me can cast bullets and reload our own stuff? It wouldn't be. Therefore, the logical next step is to introduce HUGE penalties (can you say similar to class 3 violations?) for POSSESSION of unregistered ammo. Tell me, what good will your huge stashes do while you are in a federal prison for the next 8-10 years because of ONE unregistered round?
I'm not happy. I'm not comfortable at all. If you are like me, look how good the chances are that there might be a stray .22 round under the cusion of a couch or under the carpet or seats in your car someplace?
Serialized firing pins? Hmmm....anyone ever heard of replacing or repairing a firing pin? Lets see, how about picking up emptys at the range to throw down at the scene of a crime as you pick up your empties? Obviously that won't work. So, why not register brass too or even require that it be turned back in to prove you didn't allow someone else to pick up your brass?
Speculative --sure. But, who thought we would go this far toward outright socialisn in only three months?
I'm worried brothers and sisters...this could get really nasty.
