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

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.
