    Even though the technology is not viable, and has not been proven to be reliable and practical to implement, the editors want it to become mandatory right away. And if your gun does not have microstamping technology in it? Why then it has to be banned from being sold.

    This shows just how extreme anti-gun sentiment has become in California. And how totally unknowledgeable about guns the proponents of gun control are. They are actually proposing imaginary solutions to problems that don't even exist!!

    Here is a link to this editorial:

    'Microstamping' technology could help police crack down on gun crimes — if the gun lobby allows it

    And here is a critique of the editorial:

    So I have a question. How many murders are unsolved that would be solved if they knew who the gun originally belonged to?

    Even if it were possible, what good would it do?

    Of course that is the gold standard of gun control, if it is meaningless but makes guns harder to buy, it must be good.

    Just another way to implement their gun control BS. Next they'll demand all guns be unproven smart gun technology that doesn't work as well,,,

    So the LA Times believe the needs of the police outweighs the rights of the people? Also they never heard of revolvers? By the way, and this ones for free...since California forces it's citizens to own low capacity firearms many of them purchase...revolvers.

    The usual egotistical eggheads with necks and wrists the size of #2 pencils who think they're the smartest ones in the room, when in fact half their body weight is their mouth and the other half is the crap that speweth from it.

    So micro stamping is somehow going to stop a criminal from illegally selling his already stolen / illegal for him to have gun?
    Makes about as much sense as a football bat!

    Michael Savage coined the phrase, "liberalism is a mental disorder" and as much as I prefer not to make blanket statements, I'm finding more and more evidence he is 100% correct.

    Those microstamping morons have such a narrow, laser like focus they miss the entire issue....as if criminals are going to say, yo dog, we need to swap these out for the microstamped ones...it's the law. :rolleyes:

    Well.....that's LA LA Land for 'ya.


    Probably get about 1,000yrs in prison! They would probably release a violent offender to make room for you!!!

    Sure, it used to be termed, "Co-Dependence." Now it's referred to as, "Dependent Personality Disorder."
    It's a curse on our society!
