    I don't think we can really pin this on Obama. Probably more a result of organizations like the Brady Campaign.

    Here is just a few of the introduced state legislation..

    apps.leg.wa.gov/docume...s/3359.pdf

    www.scstatehouse.gov/s...s/1259.htm

    www.rilin.state.ri.us/.../s2742.pdf

    www.legis.state.pa.us/...28&pn=3188

    www.njleg.state.nj.us/...490_I1.PDF

    So far, despite years of attempts at this, it does not appear to have passed anywhere. Time will tell. Thankfully, they don't appear to be trying in Texas yet.. But if Texas becomes one of a few, or the only state that does not have these requirements, prices will go up anyway...

    Chris?? :lolz:


    Shall I use your words.... "you are going to get beat on for the repost". "Repost.........is older than LP" "lol, this is a repost from over a year ago..Yikes" :p :happy0001:

    For some reason this is getting more and more momentum in forum postings and email and the only ones that can be gaining anything from it are the paranoid or the bored trying to get people paranoid.

    All the info you see on their site it over a year old and goes back several years.

    The short and long of it is, that site Ammunition Accountability Home is owned by the company (couple of guys) that hold the patents (thus have a munch of money invested they'd like to recoup) to the process. They had committed to make that visible on both the company site and that site but have yet to make an attempt. Obviously people might think and realize that "movement" was nothing more than to try to make money. Go figure.

    They started out going to the ammo manufactures and try to sell the process and as you'd expect, they all said thanks, but no thanks. They had to do something, so they hired Lobbyists to start working States to try to get a bill passed so they could still sell their process. Tells you somehting about the Legislators that sponsored it. Many pulled their support; likely after they realized they'd been sucked in. It either sat with no action or died with no votes of flat got killed in session. Even California killed it.

    From the looks of what you posted, apparently it's getting a face lift and being emailed now. I wish we could find the people doing this. It would benefit anti-gun people more to circulate this kind of crap to get people stirred up and not focus on the real stuff brewing in State and Federal legislation.

    Texas has some important issues we need to make our voices heard on.

    We don't need to freak out about ammo serialization for the general public. LE and Military I think have found isolated applications for it but getting an ammo manufacture to do it for them, while is possible, won't be cheap.

    Well since I'm at this post I will say this. I will not destroy any of my ammo before 2011, if they want to come check which will never happen as I won't let them on my property, warrant or no warrant, its a breech of 2nd amendment rights. Sure I will destroy my ammunition at that time they try and take it by filling them full of my fired ammunition.

    I've fought for this country, those morons in Washington DC will not get my weapons or my ammo.

    I know, and I assure you I wasn't trying to make an issue of it. I was merely trying to encourage a little research before posting threads that are in the news or come from email sources as there is always a chance that someone has already seen/received it and posted before you got the chance.

    I apologize if my post came across wrong as it was not intended to be an attack or even ridicule towards you. We were all new at some point.:texas:

    No, no, no, no, there is no reason to take it easy on him! Give him all the crap you want to. He deserves it, and if he doesn't deserve it right now, he will at some point really soon. :devil:

    Um, ok so knowing that this issues is pretty much dead as old dog doodie, why would you defend something that doesn't and won't exist? :p

    That's the kind of distracting the "anti's" need and start, to keep their momentum going. :texas:
