“Micro-Stamping” Legislation Proposed in the Badger State!

Wednesday, March 25, 2009
Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!

State Senator Spencer Coggs (D-6) and State Representative Leon Young (D-16) have introduced a proposal that would ban the sale of all new semi-automatic pistols not equipped with so-called “micro-stamping” technology.  While this proposal has not officially been introduced as a bill, supporters are trying to gather co-sponsors.

Micro-stamping is an unproven technology that would require unique identifying information from the firearm, including the make, model, and serial number, to be etched into the firing pin and breech face in such a manner that those identifiers are imprinted on the cartridge case upon firing.  This technology can easily be defeated with common household tools, has no public safety value, and adds substantially to the cost of the firearm.

Under this proposal, it will become ILLEGAL to sell or transfer any new semi-automatic pistol that is not capable of micro-stamping a cartridge case upon firing. 

Please contact your State Legislators TODAY and respectfully encourage them to not co-sponsor or support this anti-gun proposal.  Please click here to find contact information.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
