IT BEGINS: California Planning Gun “Microstamp” Database
The left is going all out on their anti-gun agenda.
California is now planning a gun “microstamp” database.
Attorney General Rob Bonta, along with the California Department of Justice, is proposing an additional rule to bolster the use of microstamping. The new rule proposes that the unique microstamp of every handgun in California be kept as a record with the Department of Justice to identify firearms used in criminal activity.
A statement released by the California Department of Justice addressed to “Firearm manufacturers and Interested Parties,” invites comments on specific questions “in developing new regulations to achieve the law’s objectives in the most effective manner.”
The department does not ask whether the rule should be made but rather poses questions on procedure once it is implemented. They invite input on questions such as:
Who is best suited to provide the microstamp to the DOJ?When should the microstamp be provided to the DOJ?How should the microstamp be provided to the DOJ?If a microstamp part needs to be replaced, should the regulated replacement part have the same microstamp as the original?
This comes after California had a law set in requiring all handguns to have microstamping imprints.
The bill was initially signed in 2020.
A new law is going to use special technology to better track guns when they are fired, which is ultimately expected to help police solve crimes at a faster rate.
This is one of the new laws that went into effect on July 1, 2022. The microstamping bill was signed by Governor Gavin Newsom in 2020.
Gun rights are on a slippery slope.
