NSSF Scores In Two California Suits; One Settled, The Other Remanded

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) was rightfully pleased after scoring two small but significant victories in California in December, settling one case and getting another remanded back to a lower court for hearing of arguments.

It amounted to a couple on the chin for Golden State anti-gunners.

The first case saw an NSSF lawsuit challenging the state’s 2007 microstamping requirement remanded by the state appeals court back to superior court in Fresno. The Fresno court had originally dismissed the lawsuit, which also involves the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute. They had filed the lawsuit on behalf of members against the State of California, seeking an injunction against the microstamping law that would block its enforcement.

The microstamping law was supposed to take effect in January 2010, or whenever the stat’s attorney general certified that the microstamping technology was reliable. Years later, Attorney General Kemala Harris issued the certification which activated the law.

Microstamping is one of the gun prohibition lobby’s pet programs, ostensibly aimed at semi-auto handguns and long guns that would leave a microscopic stamp on an expended shell casing, letting investigators track crimes to the owners of guns involved in crimes. That’s how it is supposed to work, in theory, anyway.
