Wisconsin: Micro-Stamping Legislation and Castle Doctrine to be Heard Thursday, May 28!

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Please Contact Committee Members!

On Thursday, May 28, at 10:00 A.M. in room 328 Northwest, the Committee on Criminal Justice will be holding a hearing on Assembly Bill 221, which would require micro-stamping technology on all newly manufactured handguns sold in Wisconsin.  This dangerous legislation needs to be stopped.  Micro-stamping is flawed, unreliable, and unproven technology that will burden not only law abiding citizens, but law enforcement agencies as well.  Your attendance to this hearing is crucial.  Don’t forget to spread the word urging your family, friends and fellow gun owners to attend this hearing to help oppose this back door gun ban scheme.  Please also contact the committee members on the Criminal Justice committee and respectfully urge them to oppose this micro-stamping legislation (AB 221). 

Micro-stamping legislation supporters claim it will help police solve crimes, but their real purpose is to price handguns beyond the reach of many Americans, by requiring firearms to be made with the gadgetry necessary to create the markings, or to ban handguns by requiring that they "micro-stamp" more consistently than is technologically possible. 

During the same time, the Committee on Personal Privacy will hear Assembly Bill 193, the Castle Doctrine self-defense legislation.  Currently there are inconsistencies with Wisconsin’s state statute in regard to what an individual’s self-defense rights are.  AB 193 will clean up those inconsistencies and allow a citizen of Wisconsin to meet force with force, including deadly force when someone unlawfully enters their home. The committee will meet in room 415 Northwest.

Please contact the members of the Personal Privacy Committee and respectfully urge them to support the Castle Doctrine legislation (AB 193) when it is presented to them on Thursday, May 28.
