Well there you go, another sign, I guess. Not to sure if this is related, but whatever.

Only in California it is being considered, but yes, i could see this coming into action, then spreading. Really not surprising, guns and ammo are being cracked down on and this would further that to the point of basically having your name on your bullet.

yes, because both NAFTA & CAFTA agreements would help make something like this ammo-ID proposal effective in all of N America.

but the idea of ?engraving? a id # on projectiles would be no better than
the results that is now gotten from the id of 'rifiling' signatures, which the
police use to some effect, right now.
would the extra cost be of any benefit...nope would just create
another level of bureaucracy and the raising of taxes to support the additional technicions and staff.

yeah, where it came from makes all the difference, how do they propose to keep registered bullets from falling into the wrong hands... black market sales of stolen bullets would become a reality, innocent people could be framed.
But on principle I do agree that it would help law enforcement to trace a shot back to where the bullet came from.
...and speaking of bullets, I guess its only a matter of time before there is a "smart bullet" about surgical strike, can you just imagine the paranoia this world would live under?

What about home reloaders that make their own bullets?
Where making your own bullets may not be easily done with metal jacketed bullets, it's done everyday with standard lead ball ammo for handguns and handguns are the most problematic when it comes to crime.
