Senate Hearing Scheduled for California Microstamping Bill!

Friday, June 15, 2007

Assembly Bill 1471 has been scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, June 26.  

AB1471 would require that after a certain date, the make, model, and serial number be micro-stamped onto the interior surface or internal working parts of all handguns in such a manner that those identifiers are imprinted onto the cartridge case upon firing.  Under AB1471, the manufacture, sale, and transfer of handguns that do not include their identifying information would be a crime.  AB1471 ignores the results of a recent University of California study of this technology, which concluded, "At the current time it is not recommended that a mandate for implementation of this technology in all semiautomatic handguns in the state of California be made."  Click here to view the study.

Please contact the members of the Senate Public Safety Committee and respectfully urge them to oppose AB1471.
