I am writing this e-mail in order to tell you my thoughts on HOUSE BILL 3359 Ammunition Micro stamping, that I believe was first brought to the floor on 02/07/08. In my considered opinion, this house bill is seriously flawed and in practice will do nothing to reduce gun violence and other such gun crimes. This bill will undoubtedly cause a huge increase in the cost of pistol ammunition due to the added processes needed for the marking of both the bullet and the case. I fail to see how this in any way will deter a would-be offender from using a pistol or any gun for that matter if intent on committing a crime. All this bill will do is further burden the law-abiding citizens who are in now way a threat to anyone. The 2nd amendment to the constitution states that the right of the citizens to bear arms will not be infringed. This law will in fact do so and is intrusive and excessively burdensome to the law-abiding citizen who would be forced to use this ammunition. I urge you to not vote in favor of this bill in any way. As an NRA member and as a 30-year military veteran, I am very keen on this subject and follow it closely so as to guide my voting each election cycle. Thank you for your time and consideration on this important issue.

RONALD REAGAN ON FREEDOM"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
THOMAS JEFFERSON ON GUN CONTROL"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms..disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one." - Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria, Criminologist in 1764. That was 230 years ago. -Thomas Jefferson
