    This howler is from the LA Times: http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion...6657483.story?coll=la-news-comment-editorials

    Those moonbats sure make it up as they go. Obviously, they are the only ones "profesional enough" to comment on technical things. Facts are just too difficult to write around...

    And what happens when criminals start duct taping plastic grocery bags over their slides to catch the brass or picking up brass or using revolvers or shotguns?

    If we got lasers and power sources small enough to fit inside the slides of pistols and powerful enough to melt metal, why aren't we shooting lasers at each other instead of primitive projectile throwing weapons??? :confused:

    I want my phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range dammit.

    This sort of reminds me of when G. Gordon Liddy was talking about his treasury department days and they were going to serialize ammo. He brought in a box of .22LR cartridges dumped them on his supervisors desk and asked where? Considering the Millions of rounds made a year it was nuts. Do the moon bats suggest outlawing all old guns so we have to buy new ones so this idiotic plan might work?:rolleyes:

    My thoughts exactly. And I'm sure the cost would be 100 billion dollars!

    Of course, you can defeat bullets marked in this way by merely wearing meat helmets, especially if they are made by a Belgian boulangerie owner with mild narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery.

    If a laser can etch the make and model of the gun on each bullet, maybe I could rig mine to etch the target's name on them instead.

    California doesn't need gun control laws. They need immigration laws to be enforced.

    What do they expect from the 1/3 of their population that are criminals by their very presence? What would deter that 33% of the population from breaking one more in a long list of broken laws?

    Guns don't murder; exploited hungry people who face no significant punishment for their crimes sometimes do though.

    Anti-gun activists crack me up with their logic. I mean, they have statistic on top of statistic claiming the Latino community is the source for much of the violence, and so their plan is to make firearms complicated and expensive so that the Police can solve crimes easier? Give me a break. Do these people understand that firearms are made in every country in the world? If you can't stop people from WALKING into your state illegally, what makes you think you can make them leave the guns they already have down south?

    I wonder if Schwartzeneger's parents had any kids that lived?

    Taliv,

    Yeah, I was gonna mention the battery thing... Does the gun still fire when the battery is dead, or does a dead battery make the weapon inoperable?:D

    This is absolutely the stupidest[sic] idea I've ever heard; utterly farcical. Anyone have a link to the makers website?

    And... here's the kicker...

    Why would a criminal buy a gun that he knows would be traced back to him...:D

    ...Ooops, my bad, criminals aren't allowed to buy guns, it says so right on the form...:D

    Hey... who do they think will buy these guns anyway... oh... I get it... they're banning guns without repealing the 2nd Amendment...

    Oh, so many mistakes in that article to criticize, and so little time.

    "Very helpful, considering that up to half of all firearms-related homicides in California go unsolved."

    Here in Milwaukee, the PD has a homicide clearance rate of over 90%. It would be cheaper to have some Milwaukee PD officers go to California and teach CA officers how to conduct investigations.

    "California has some of the strongest gun laws in the country, but more are needed."

    If the laws were working, you wouldn't need more laws.

    "The inventor of microstamping — an NRA member..."

    P.T. Barnum may have been an NRA member, too, but that didn't stop him from saying that there's a sucker born every minute.

    a gun used by a criminal was probible obtained illegaly ( stolen, black market.. ect) so tracing it back to a legal owner serves no purpose

    criminals are just gunna use old guns that dont have the laser system

    companys like norinco arnt gunna install those things

    just go into the gun and block the laser or cut the wires

    the amount of power needed would be rediculous

    The BOZO editorial writer mixed up two recent California gun control strategies:

    Bullet serialization where bullets and cases are given serial numbers at the factory which would then require record keeping at every step. Logistically nearly impossible.

    Microstamping of the gun chamber, breechface and firing pin. Said information would then be transferred to the cartridge when fired. I've no idea how this could be successfully be done to a fired bullet.

    Lastly, the all the laser etching or engraving is done at the manufacturing level. Laser technology to do this inside the gun itself is impossible with current technology.

    Stupidity is infinite.

    Sounds like a backdoor way to ban guns. Mandate a feature that's technically impossible.

    Seriously though, wouldn't a serial number engraved in the chamber imprint each case?

    Do any of these people realize that a serial number in a chamber or on an firing pin could just be ground off? Think they're going to outlaw Dremel tools next?

    Heck, that's what they've nearly done in MA.

    To the editors:

    Regarding your error-filled editorial about stamping bullets with that miniature laser in the guns, I have a similar idea.

    How about requiring a serial number on all editorials published in the country identifying the writer? That way readers could look for patterns of total idiocy and avoid those nonsensical blurbs.

    When I saw that article I had to check two things. First to see if it was dated April Fool's Day and second to see if it was from a satirical web site like the Onion.com. Since it was neither of those I have to ask: Is the writer an idiot or a liar?

    BTW- if you'd like to let the LA Times how you feel-

    No, my friend, it's the LA Times. They are mostly a bunch of monkeys with typewriters. The are, apparently, still working on Shakespear...

    It would be unwise of us to think that they are really stupid enough to believe that this will work.

    As someone has already said, it is a ban on guns in California without having to enact a ban. They sell this bill to the legislature and it passes. Arnold folds and signs it into law because he knows a veto will be overridden.

    Presto....no new guns in CA because the technology simply doesn't exist and the gun banners get their goal all the while being able to maintain plausible deniability that they were only working for safer guns and capturing criminals but those bad ol' gun manufacturers wouldn't implement the supposedly availabble technology demanded by the new law.

    No different than what MD did with the ballistic fingerprinting. They required a fired shell casing for the IBIS system in spite of the fact that the program was defunded and no new shell casings were being entered into the system.

    The fact that the system can not, in any way, be considered functional is irrelevant. What us relevant is that MD law still requires the fired shell casing and there are many manufacturers who smply refuse to supply a shell casing for a small firearms market like MD and, once again, PRESTO a defacto gun ban without calling it such. :banghead:

    L.A. Times makes a correction!

    my comment to the LA TIMES:
    There is no such thing as a laser that can engrave bullet cases as they
    are fired. Don't your writers confirm things like this before going to print?

    Their reply:

    Thank you for writing to the readers' representative office. A correction
    on the editorial, Right on Target, was published in yesterday's newspaper. I
    have pasted it below in case you've not seen it.

    Thank you for writing to point this out.

    Guns: An editorial on Thursday about a new technology that gives bullets
    a unique identifier said it uses a small laser inside the gun to mark each
    bullet. Lasers are used to etch engravings on the gun parts that are used in the
    process, but they are not inside the gun.
