Micro-stamping Legislation Placed on Committee Agenda in New York

Friday, April 29, 2011

On Tuesday, May 3, the Assembly Committee on Codes will hear Assembly Bill 1157.  Introduced by state Assemblyman Michelle Schimel (D-16), A1157 would make micro-stamping mandatory on all new semi-automatic pistols sold after January 1, 2013. 

A1157 would require all semi-automatic pistols delivered to any licensed firearms dealer in New York to mechanically stamp an alpha-numeric or geometric code that would identify the make, model and serial number onto the cartridge case when the gun is discharged.  This bill would require models currently available to be redesigned by their manufacturers to have a micro-stamping component, which would vastly increase the cost of these firearms.

Micro-stamping is an unproven technology that is easily defeated with common household tools and the replacement of a few small parts.  If passed, the availability of semi-automatic handguns in New York will be in serious doubt, as manufacturers simply may choose not to build or sell firearms for purchase in the state.  Of course, that is the ultimate goal of this legislation.  Make no mistake, this is a gun ban and it must be stopped.

Please contact members of the Assembly Codes Committee and respectfully ask them to OPPOSE A1157.  Contact information for this committee is listed below.
