Here's a bill before the MS state legislature's upcoming session.

http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/documents/2008/pdf/SB/2200-2299/SB2286IN.pdf

In a nutshell, all handgun and 'assault rifle' ammunition must be encoded with serial numbers on the bullet's base beginning summer 2008, AND any previously produced ammo must be disposed of by 2010.

Will this be the next approach to gun control? 'Ammo control'?

Can you imagine the cost of handloading serially encoded bullets? Or imagine having to dispose of your stash of 223 ammo you've stockpiled? Or heck, the box of 1000 lead semiwadcutters for your 357?

Realistically, I just don't see how this could ever pass, but it scares the hell out of me just knowing that some numbnut proposed the bill.

Some laws are just made to break.

Never say never. There have been many laws that started out as something that could never happen.

This is scary as heck! One of the reasons why I'm going to buy a black rifle in the next few months.

Some lawmakers are complete idiots, totally detached from any sense of reality.

Ammo Serialization Bill Filed in House and Senate!

On Thursday, January 17, legislation was filed in both the Tennessee House and Senate that would requires all handgun ammunition manufactured or sold in Tennessee to be coded with a serial number, and entered into a statewide database at the time of sale.

Encoded ammunition would be registered to the purchaser and would include the date of transaction, the purchaser's name, date of birth, driver's license number, and the serial number of the ammunition.

SB3395, sponsored by State Senator Reginald Tate (District 33) and HB3245, sponsored by State Representative Larry Miller (District 88) pose a serious threat to our Right to Keep and Bear Arms and need to be stopped immediately. Please contact your State Legislators and respectfully urge them to protect the Second Amendment rights of Tennessee's law-abiding gun owners by opposing SB3395 and HB3245.

Please visit http://www.legislature.state.tn.us/senate/members/smembers.htm#Find for contact information for your State Senator, and http://www.legislature.state.tn.us/house/members/hmembers.htm#Find for contact information for your State Representative.


The above was posted under the Gerenal and Polictal.

99% of all gun law legislation to restrict your 2nd amendment rights has been proposed by democrats. Without even looking for the answer, it's a given that this bill was proposed by democrat politicians.

Of course, then it will take a much higher tax on ammo to pay the high cost of doing this ---- just one more way to expand big government and raise taxes.
