I can see this legislation passing in some states, but overall it isn't going to work.
Ammo manufactures are not going to code their ammo for a few states out of 50. The states that do pass this legislation are only hurting themselves. I don't know how exactly they are going to figure out which ammo is coded and which ones aren't though.
11 NEW SECTION. Sec. 3. A new section is added to chapter 9.41 RCW 12 to read as follows: 13 A seller of pistol ammunition that is required to be coded under 14 section 1 of this act must comply with the following requirements: 15 (1) Register with the department of licensing in a manner 16 prescribed by the department of licensing; 17 (2) Report to the department of licensing, in a format prescribed 18 by the department of licensing, the following information for each 19 transaction that involves pistol ammunition that is required to be 20 coded under section 1 of this act: 21 (a) The date of the transaction; 22 (b) The name and date of birth of the purchaser or transferee of 23 the pistol ammunition; 24 (c) The driver's license number or other government-issued 25 identification card number of the purchaser or transferee of the pistol 26 ammunition; 27 (d) The unique alphanumeric identifier of all pistol ammunition 28 transferred to the purchaser or transferee; and 29 (e) Other information that the department of licensing determines 30 is necessary.

Why do you people have such a problem with Obama. Get over it the republicans lost, the backwards thinking policies of the neo-conservatives are on their way out and some people just can't deal with it, democrats and liberals were never sore losers, but you guys just can't get over it. CASE IN POINT: THESE ARE STATE LEGISLATION ISSUES. NOT FEDERAL LAWS THEREFORE OBAMA HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THESE BILLS. Obama and the white house are part of the executive branch of the FEDERAL government. not the STATE governments. so stop blaming Obama. also, I like how you post a link to snopes.com that says in big letters undetermined. AHAHAHAHA you think just because it hasn't been disproved YET that its the truth? Give me a break, I do thank you for one thing, I will never ever ever take anything you post as the truth again....I love when people think they have a good case and post utter nonsense like this, it just gives me another name to add to the retard list....please please don't breed, one thing this world doesn't need is another child version of you going around with their head up their own but oblivious to the world....go read a book.

Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009
The bill 20 that is being pushed in 18 states (including Illinois and Indiana) 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.
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!

As a UK member must say that I find this whole thread rather hard to swallow. You don't need guns at home..........simple. We still have unarmed police walking the streets too and it works, believe it or not.
