Ladies and Gentlemen:
Both of these are very bad bills. Both in fact are a crock.
AB1741 requires a micro stamp on all cartridges. Ostensibly this will identify guns at crime scenes. The reality is different. The numbers are easily filed off. It will only work on about 5% of guns currently in California. What's to stop anyone from gathering up already microstamped cartridges from shooting ranges and planting them at crime scenes.
AB 1471 just isn't workable.
AB821 is just as bad. The ONLY condor who ever died from lead poisoning in the last 15 years was fed a tainted carcass killed by a Fish and Game Warden. The pig was killed just to feed the condor. What crisis is there in "lead based ammunition poisoning condors" in that situation? Lead is found naturally in the environment. Are you going to take all lead out of the environment? Don't forget the study done in Europe where a bullet shattered into hundreds of fragments. Except hunters don't use bullets that shatter, they use bullets that stay in one piece.
AB821 is not workable.
