California Supreme Court Upholds Gun Control Law That’s Impossible To Comply With

Remember, gun grabbers are not coming for your guns, they just want to something something mumble mumble and this type of law helps

(Breitbart) The Supreme Court of California upheld a micro-stamping requirement for semiautomatic handguns Thursday — even though the technology does not exist to allow manufacturers to comply.

The Associated Press summed up the court’s ruling: “The California Supreme Court says state laws cannot be invalidated on the grounds that complying with them is impossible.”

The micro-stamping requirement, or “bullet stamping law,” as it is sometimes called, requires that semiautomatic handguns sold in California have a special, one-of-kind marker affixed to their firing pins so a special fingerprint is left on each spent shell casing. The idea is to give law enforcement a means to take shell casings from a crime scene and trace them back to the firearm’s owner.

Many problems exist with this proposed scenario. First, the technology does not exist. No manufacturer who is importing guns into California makes a firearm that puts a special mark on spent shell casings.

Second, if the technology did exist, it would easy to defeat by simply scratching the mark off the firing pin or replacing the factory firing pin.

Third, an even easier way to defeat it would be to use a revolver instead instead of a semi-automatic. (Revolvers do not leave behind spent shell casings).

Fourth, people can clean up their cases, and even use a device, a simple bag, to gather than as they are shot. Fifth, what was that 1st thing? Sixth, how many criminals purchase their handguns through lawful channels? This is about a) finding ways to go after law abiding citizens if their guns are stolen and used in a crime and b) making it almost impossible for law abiding citizens to purchase a handgun for self defense. So, you’ll see more purchase revolvers. And then the state will find a way to make that more difficult.

    Easy way to defeat #4: Construct and use a brass catcher, like one that is already available for “assault” rifles for under $20.

    But this isn’t about solving crimes since logically, being able to trace a gun to a grime does nothing to implicate the lawful owner of that gun in a crime. The law would need to prove chain of custody of the gun, something they have failed to do repeatedly with gun serial numbers. Hint: Criminals don’t register their guns. Hint2: Guns, even police guns, sometimes get lost or stolen. This does not make the owner a criminal.

    “The California Supreme Court says state laws cannot be invalidated on the grounds that complying with them is impossible.”

    If this is regarded as a valid legal principle, every lawyer on earth needs to be straitjacketed and locked up.

    If it is impossible to comply with, it is unenforceable. The obvious conclusion is that the state has no intention of punishing people with actual fines or imprisonment, but by arresting and charging them and forcing them to post bail.

    The state supreme court may let it stand, but SCOTUS will see it differently — especially after this fall.

    A Trump defender convicted of online harassment walked into an enemy of the state a newspaper and murdered 5 employees.

    Expect more violent attacks on the press.

    Another friend of the lyinn loser…

    A 33-year-old California man who told the FBI he was upset about the repeal of net neutrality regulations has been arrested on charges of threatening to kill the family of Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.

    It’s like loser lefties can’t accept defeat peaceably.

    • Jeffery says:

      Included in the charges was that the threat included revealing Pai’s address.
