IMO this will break the ammo manufactures and that is the goal of this law.

"That's why the fact that the Assembly has bought into a national crusade known as the Ammunition Accountability Act is suddenly a legitimate threat. New York, Pennsylvania and 16 other states have already enacted legislation that would mandate the engraving of a unique serial number on the base of each handgun and “assault weapon” bullet, and an identical number on the cartridge's case. The act calls for dealers of this “encoded ammunition” to record the purchaser's name, birthdate, drivers license number, etc."

If anything this will just increase the sale of home loading equipment and inspire people to pull apart the rounds and file off the serials from the slugs.

"All non-encoded ammunition must be disposed of prior to Jan. 1, 2011."

Or what? They SWAT team your house based on data that 2 years ago you purchased 4,000 rounds of 7.62x39 and its reasonable for them to suspect you still have some?

Oh and of course there will be a tax on the ammo to pay for all this tracking.

I'm guessing it would. The bullet and case have to have matching numbers and I imagine a record of those will probably be kept by some government agency so they can track the sale.

But Im sure we will all feel safer living in this police state.

I believe this bill has already been brushed aside by most of the affected states, but that's not to say it ain't coming back around sometime soon.:(

The bill that is being pushed in 18 states requires all ammunition to be encoded by the manufacture a data base of all ammunition sales. So they will know how much you buy and what calibers. Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009 unless the ammunition is coded.

Any privately held uncoded ammunition must be destroyed by July 1, 2011. (Including hand loaded ammo.) They will also charge a .05 cent tax on every round so every box of ammo you buy will go up at least $2.50 or more!

If they can deprive you of ammo they do not need to take your gun!

This legislation is currently pending in 18 states:

Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, & Washington.

It's dead as a hammer here in SC, it was intentionally sent to committee to die....And with our current budget crisis, the state WILL NOT be allocating any $$ for the record keeping anyway...

I understand that this thread has been around for awhile, but has anyone heard whether or not any of these passed? And what resources I could use to track the progress of bills like these via the internet? My research online has turned up nil.

they recently passed this in California concerning handgun ammunition...

http://www.news10.net/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=68596

One of the bills that he signed was Assembly Bill 962. It requires handgun ammunition to be kept behind the counter where customers cannot access it without assistance. It also requires gun shop owners to thumbprint people who buy handgun ammunition, as well as record their identification and provide that information to police.
Here's a bill tracker...

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/legislation.xpd

Each state will have it's own bill tracker at the state website such as this one...

so let me get this right they stamp a serial num on the bullet and a corresponding serial on the case and record what you bought when you buy ammo what happens when someone gets a box from some other dude and goes and kills someone cops are going to have a real hard time tracking the reall killer as you can swipe ammo at a shooting range pretty easily if your just going for a few rounds

I don't think they stamp the bullet, just the pistol to the case (it's on the firing pin I believe)

For the box of pistol ammo... they record the serial numbers to the box and take a thumb print...

This is just as I understand it...I don't live there. It would seem to me that MikeinLA could give a more accurate assessment of the process.
