The latest example of Big Business using the power of the Corporatist Fascist State Government to pass laws that result in Government-coerced profitability for the lobbyists paying for that influence?
The corporate entity and government officials behind this latest effort:
The Ammunition Accountability Act
Notice the ".com" domain...pushing for official legislation in 18 states.
The developer of ammunition identification technology is attempting to use the power of the government to FORCE all ammunition manufacturer's to adopt their technology. They will also sell their database hardware/software to any states that adopt the legislation they are promoting (most likely in a non-bid, over-budget, highly lucrative contract from State's general budget coffers...i.e. the taxpayers).
I haven't read all the State's variations on the legislation, but in Hawaii's proposals, they are pushing for ALL CITIZENS to surrender all ammunition produced before the passage of this law! Than we can only buy back ammunition that has been serialized...and we have to pay a 5% on every single round! They also collect a host of personal info to put in the database for future reference by Big Brother.
And, of course, all this legislation is based on this notion of "helping" we the sheeple!
Ammunition Accountability is a newly forming group of ammunition coding technology supporters. Our group includes gun crime victims, industry representatives, law enforcement, public officials, public policy experts, and more. We are working together to pass legislation to make ammunition coding technology a reality.
Translation: Ammunition Accountability is a newly forming group of ammunition coding technology supporters who plan to make a fortune creating and selling the tools necessary for your State Governments to help implement the Orwellian Police State. Ammunition manufacturers will have no choice but to pay the extra costs associated with our program while we rake in the $$$$$ selling our technology to the States that are dumb enough to support their legislators in passing this affront to the Second Amendment!!!!
Ammunition coding technology works by laser etching the back of each bullet with an alpha-numeric serial number. Then when a potential criminal purchases a box of 9mm cartridges, the box of ammunition and the bullets’ coding numbers would be connected to the purchaser in a statewide database. When a bullet is found at a crime scene, the code on the bullet can be read with a simple magnifying glass and then be run through a statewide database to determine who purchased the ammunition and where, providing a valuable investigative lead.
Ahhh..so now a person could easily frame another by stealing their ammo and using it in a crime!
Or what if you dropped a round by accident while you were at the firing range? Somebody could pick it up and use it in a crime...and YOU go to jail!
Just another example of Hope and Change that we can believe in.
Welcome to the United Corporations of Fascist America...land of the Fee and Home of the Debt Slave!
