Maybe I’m just one little guy with one little blog. But I’m going to try to get this idea spread to the major gun organizations: NRA, GOA, and SAF.
This is a call for help from inside California to freedom lovers everywhere.
Governer Schwarzenkennedy just signed the so-called microstamping bill. This requires that new semi-automatic firearms sold in California starting in 2010 have microstamping technology which puts a unique serial number on the shell casing as it is fired. The trouble is that the technology doesn’t exist, meaning by 2010 you won’t be able to get a semi-automatic in this state.
Every firearms and ammunition manufacturer in the country needs to stop selling to California today. This especially means to California law enforcement.
Action items for every gun owner and shooter in the whole country:
1) Ask the following question at the gun shop:
Does the manufacturer of this gun/ammo sell to anybody in the state of California?
If the answer is positive, your reply has to be, “please show me a different brand, and tell them I won’t buy theirs until they stop”. If that means you leave the shop empty handed, so be it.
2) Contact the major manufacturers letting them know, politely, exactly why they should be following Ronnie Barrett’s example. Let them know that we’re on their side. If this sort of idiotic anti-freedom legislation rolls out to the rest of the country they’ll lose their entire market permanently. They know even better than we that microstamping is science fiction.
When every police department in the state starts running out of guns and ammo, maybe the littlebrains in Sacramento will get a clue. And the lethargic California gun owners who aren’t yet active will have to get busy being squeaky wheels.
This microstamping bill is as close to a ban as you can get without being one. Now is the time to act.
Got another or better contact link? Please leave a comment.
Judging by some email I’ve gotten, I didn’t make it clear enough that I mean for this to be an ammo boycott also. If ammo suppliers think they’ll lose all their national civilian ammo sales because they’re
selling to California law enforcement, they might be willing to put on the brakes. And the sooner the cops in California run out of ammo, the sooner the heavyweight lobbyists will kick democrat (and RINO) patootie in Sacramento.
