Cocktail yet? Good.<quoted text>
Puleeze. You're just arguing to argue. RFID in my copper jacketed hollow point .38? Casings left behind, are traceable. Lead, uh uh. Your "pipe" dreams disregard costs and determination for a Running Mans's head collar for all ammunition purchasers. Already re-loading devices are flying off the shelves. Just as enforceable as the UN's latest resolution. The shooter out there today, haven't been incarcerated yet. They are alive and well in Hartford, Bridgeport, Waterbury and Norwich. I know you are yanking my chain, but, at least let me lube up.
Neither one of the Dobermans have figured it out yet, the Vet just gave them a shot. If they ever get loose, all their particulars can be read through their skin. It's smaller than a grain of rice and can absolutely fit in a .38 slug.
I can't believe you pulled the reloading card after stating that bad guys don't care about background checks or cooling off periods. No crook is going to steal a gun without stealing ammo and he/she is definitely not going to stop the crime spree to weigh out powder and reprime cases.
What just happened at the UN will likely take decades to fully enact plus there are objectors like North Korea, Syria and so forth who don't like the idea of gun control and will back door their guns through Russia and China. Before that shift is complete, the state of the manufacturing art will make secure personal weapons like the "Lawgiver" a la Judge Dredd possible. It may not take your hand off but it can definitely be made to work for only one person.
Crooks will always be crooks which is why we need to change the things we can control...the guns and ammo. I doubt we can keep guns out of the hands of bad people, if they really want them they'll find them. But there'll come a day (and it's not too far off) when we can have our guns and keep them too. Having one stolen really bothered me, I wished I could have turned it off with Lojack...
