They had to screw up an apparently otherwise good bill with useless Microstamping.

Worse than useless. Expensive. Are we going to have firearms like we have lawnmowers now that say “NOT FOR SALE IN CALIFORNIA,” except for New York?
I guess we already have that with magazines more than 10 rounds. But now New York is in a whole other league.

There is nothing so useless or stupid that government won't spend money on it.
Matter of fact, useless and stupid seem to be requirements.

Just where are the LE agencies gonna buy their firearms and ammo from when no mfg will microstamp, thus cannot sell into NY?
Isn’t it about time the firearms industry bands together with gun owners and refuses to sell to any LE agency where these kind of regulations are in place? It would be painful economically at first, losing the sales to those agencies/states, but once the “unintended consequences” of these type of laws were felt, the long term benefit would vastly outweigh the short term economic losses.
I can’t believe that the firearms industry can be so shortsighted.

I gotta get out of this state. I gotta get out of this state. I feel that other states are becoming carbon copies of NY though. What are we going to do when every state is like NY and California? The liberals get elected to the legislature and contribute to the economic demise of state #1. When the citizen liberals of that state are fed up that they can't find jobs and/or that they're being taxed to death, they move to state #2. They carry their beliefs with them, however, and proceed to elect more liberals to the legislature of the second state. The process repeats itself.
Right now, I'm looking at Texas as my #1 option after finishing school. Maybe the Dakotas or Wyoming too, although I really want warmer weather.
