Mike McDaniel, at Stately McDaniel Manor, makes excellent arguments against micro-stamping – relevant as that case is being fought in California now:

So California has implemented a mandate requiring technology that either doesn’t exist or isn’t effective.  Progressives often legislate based on the way they think things ought to be rather than what they are, and this time, courts may have little choice but to strike down what is clearly nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt at an outright ban on an entire class of clearly constitutionally protected handguns.  

We can only hope.  Because this law, signed by then Governor Schwarzenegger in 2007, is not about crime-fighting.

Now, where did I put my file….
