Yes, but Microstamping is unlikely to actually be enforced anytime soon.

Hard to enforce that which does simply not work.

Just to be specific, the micro-stamping is a condition to get on the Roster, whenever the implementation might happen. LEOs are exempt from the Roster.

We should really push to require LEOs to have this safety feature on their duty weapons.

While we're at it, why don't we push for LEOs to only have weapons that are on the safe list?

It's about safety right??? :rolleyes:

yes they will most likely be exempt. as of right now they are exempt from high cap mags and non rostered handguns.

That *&^% bill is one of the smartest effing moves that the opposition has ever made.

The proof of it is that someone here commented that it will more than likely never be enforced. Mark one up for the antis, heck that one should count as three or four.

Lets look at the reality of life in the golden state. CA does not give a rats behind weather or not technology can keep up with legislation. That law means that no new handguns will be put on the roster after it goes into affect, affect, because it has already been passed. If, by chance some company decides to spend the money in tooling, testing, retooling, retesting, and compliance paperwork required to get a handgun on the roster, that "golden" handgun will probably sell for almost double the price that it did before microstamping. So as guns expire from the roster they will not be replaced, we have already lost, it is just a matter of how long till the O2 tank runs dry.

The icing on the cake is that LEOs can purchase off roster handguns, so they will not only be exempt from microstamping, but there will be less incentive for companies to retool and produce compliant guns

not only is technology not perfect yet microstamping is patended so the guy that owns the rights to it could not even release the tech. to use. so you would really be screwed then.

I wonder how many "cents" that adds to the equation.

As it was stated that this would only add a few cents to the cost of each new gun.
