Posted on 01/23/2014 9:59:48 AM PST by rktman
Smith & Wesson announced it will stop selling its handguns in California rather than manufacture them to comply with the new microstamping law. The other publicly traded firearms manufacturer in the U.S., Sturm, Ruger, also said this month that it will stop new sales to California.
The announcement late Wednesday came a week after the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for firearms manufacturers, filed suit against California for requiring that all new semi-automatic pistols that are not already on the states approved gun roster have the microstamping technology.

The only way to save gun sales is put huge taxes on them like cigarettes. Then the government will want them sold at every gas station convenience store.
Yeah, that’s why cigarettes are so popular/s
smoke ‘em if you got ‘em?
Well, in Cali it apparently doesn’t matter what the voters want. If they put something on the ballot that the voters overwhelmingly vote for, the Cali supreme court will toss it out anyway. Happened before.
The ultimate gun grabber goal is to disarm law abiding citizens. This is a huge victory for them. Look for most other blue states to follow.
That’s what the libs *think* they are getting, but somebody posted some photos of what the marks really look like, and they’re illegible. A couple of rubs with emery and they’re gone.
A few minutes with a piece of fine emery cloth on the firing pin will correct that problem.
Yes, and as else where in the US today, corruption runs deep in Kalifornicate but since the citizen initiative process is still in place, it might be worth pursuing in conjunction with a recall on those in Sacramento who are responsible.
Recall in Cali? Not likely. Too many takers and not enough makers.
I visualize a bunch of gang members sitting around filing markings off of bullets.
“Hey, bra, give me some of your emery cloth.”
“Nah, man. Go to Home Depot and steal some like I did.”
Don't worry, the gun grabbers will see that that is made a felony. And if you take your new microstamped gun to the range and fire 1000 rounds, you do the same thing....alter the number....a felony. See how the gun grabbers work?
All manufactures should follow suit and absolutely refuse to sell firearms, parts, etc. to anyone in California including the police and National Guard units.
I know this has already been done by Barrett when the .50 cal laws were passed in CA.
either way with this approach the libs get a win-win.
they either submit and make these stupid guns. or they stop selling and citizens can’t buy guns. libtards happy either way.
Use the emery cloth on the firing pin tip, not the ammo.
One does not need a degree in engineering to disassemble and reassemble a firearm.
they do that and some libtard group goes in front of libtard judge/judges and gets it smacked down. look at prop 8.
If S&W is serious they need to tell the law enforcement agencies there as well we will not sell to you either. If all the gun companies did this and they stuck together it would be interesting to see what happens when their police officers can only buy used firearms and nothing new. Won’t happen though.
When Prop 187 was thrown out it ushered in a title wave of judicial sewage.
For progressives, it's a win-win, get minority opinions forced into law EVEN BEFORE they use their indoctrination propaganda machine to tip the scale, while at the same time, demoralize traditional conservatives enough that they give up on the idea that their vote matters anymore, abandon the fight...then simply...DIE OUT.
So, if you are a conservative who believes the entire system has become manipulated/corrupt, what recourse do you really have, other than...
"...get busy living"...(however way you deem necessary)
..."or get busy dying"...(the progressives OWN version of "The "Final Solution")
Well, then it’s time to pay the piper to preserve what’s left of our liberty.
Lever actions don’t “eject” casings, either! They are a single-action, as are bolt-action riles, too.
