Microstamping on gun rights

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

In 1983, Clint Eastwood reprised his “Dirty Harry” role in the movie “Sudden Impact,” set in the San Francisco area. Like most of Mr. Eastwood's films, it included a few signature lines, including one that notified some bad guys of his backup: “Smith and Wesson … and me.”
It appears Californians will have less backup from Smith & Wesson, thanks to a misguided law that went into effect last year. As reported by the Los Angeles Times' Kate Mather on Jan. 23, Smith & Wesson will not comply with California's microstamping statute, which will cause more of its products to fall off the state's permissible firearms list and be ineligible for sale. Sturm, Ruger & Co. also will allow its products to fall off the list.
