    I haven't seen any news lately on the CA state bill requiring ammo to be labeled w/ a 'serial number.'

    Is there any news?

    yeah but some dumb A$$ed Cali politician will make it his goal in life to bring it back. Because we all know if it passes it will curb the rampant amounts of gun deaths here. :banghead: :banghead:

    You mean SB 357?

    It's not dead. Look for it next session.
    The authors have had to amend the heck out of it to keep it afloat, but it ain't dead and it will be back.

    Bad ideas never actually die in the People's Republic of California.

    Officially, it made it out of the Senate, its house of origin, but stalled in the Assembly. This makes it a 'two year bill'. As soon as the Assembly reconvenes, it can be considered again.

    I may be mistaken, but I heard that Senator Perata tried to re-call SB357 before it was submitted, due to various reasons....one of which was to amend the bill with an imposition of an additional tax-per- round of ammo (this would be a revitalization of previous STOOPID tax bills that were "shot down", and consisted of 5- and 10-cents per ROUND added onto loaded ammo).

    Rumor has it that Senator H. Clinton is STILL holding onto the written/un-submitted legislation that was authored by the late Senator Moynihan. That "piece of work", if passed, would impose a 10,000% federal tax increase on loaded ammo!

    Remember, "THEY" seem to know what is best for all of us! "THEY" didn't really like it when the "Assault Weapons Ban" was allowed to "sunset"!
    "THEY" may not try to actually TAKE our guns, but "THEY" could increase the taxes so much that "WE, the people" wouldn't be able to afford to even buy .22LR ammo!

    In 1956, I was 10 years old when my dad started teaching me how to reload ammo. To this day, I recall when he told me that reloading might become a necessity, for the government might not be able to take our guns, but they'd tax ammunition so high that no one would be able to afford it!

    I can almost hear Mike Dillon purring "Exxxxxcellent" as he leans back in his leather chair and rubs his gnarled hands together.
