“Because of California’s law requiring new gun models to use microstamping, no gun manufacturer has introduced a new handgun model to our state since 2013. That means handguns with the latest and most reliable technology are not available to California’s law-abiding gun owners.
“That is exactly what anti-gun legislators wanted when they passed the law.
“This, as with most gun control bills, does nothing to improve public safety. It won’t get illegal guns off the street but will only drive up the cost of handguns made before 2013, making them unaffordable to Californians on a budget who wish to exercise their Second Amendment rights.” – Assemblyman Matthew Harper in It’s time to end ‘microstamp’ requirement for handguns [via latimes.com]
