Did anyone research this company? A quick whois and trademark search revealed that the domain and the trademark is owned by an individual. Further googling shows that he is/was employed with a well-known IT company.

I'm wondering if that technology and company is real.

So according to the linked site we shouldn't have to register our guns if they are
sold with the marked firing pin. I doubt that

It would merely make the politickers add an amendment to say any tampering or effort to remove the microstamp would be illegal. Of course all criminals will immediately obey this law and not tamper with the firing pin.

Default Call the Gov. It's easy!

Got this from a buddy. If you know about the bill, just scroll down and follow the steps to call the Gov. Takes about 20 seconds and you don't have to talk to anyone. The Gov's office makes it easy to voice your opinion.

Please take the time to call the gov and vote your
opinion.
What is the bill about:
-starting with 2009 all firearms sold in California
will be required to be fitted with a firing pin that
imprints the serial number of the gun on the ammo
casing.

Why it is bad:
-Any criminal with an I.Q. over a 50, which there are
a couple, is gonna know to take a file to erase the
microstamping grooves on the damn firing pin. The
honest citizen will just have the cost of production
passed on to him.
-Any criminal with and I.Q. under 50 which there are
scores, is gonna use a revolver, not a pistol to
commit a crime. Revolvers do not eject spent casings,
they remain inside the revolver cylinder.
-If you have a criminal that is really smart (and
there are plenty) he would go at any public shooting
range and collect a few spent shells from the range
floor then drop them at the crime scene. Imagine your
surprise when the cops will knock on your door if one
or more of the spent shells are yours.

Help stop California Democrats like Dianne Feinstein
and Nancy Pelosi eroding our Constitutional rights.
They don't want to make us safer; they want better
control over all of us, over our lives and liberties

Call Arnold, RIGHT NOW, it takes 20 seconds and you
don't have to talk to anyone

Again: Call right now! You don't have to speak to
anyone. This takes 20 seconds.

CALL Gov's Sac number (916-445-2841)

Press 1 - for English
Press 2 - for Voice your opinion on Assembly Bills
Press 1 - for Micro Stamping Bill (AB1471)
Press 2 to OPPOSE the gun control bill.

That's it! I repeat, you do not need to speak to
anyone.
THIS IS CRITICAL!

What happens when the criminals use revolvers and the casings don't get ejected?

Hate to say it, but the Governor passed it from what I hear. Hope I am wrong, would be nice to punish criminals committing offenses rather than the law abiding citizen.

Unhappy

Unfortunately this silly pointless bill was signed into law by Schwarzenegger in 2007.
It will become enforced/active when the "technology" it relies on is actually developed.
It really is quite preposterous, but from a full time legislature who can't balance a damn budget, well, what do you expect?
