NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- New York state’s microstamping bill died in the Senate after being passed by the Assembly, though with five fewer votes than in years past.

Despite being backed by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and gun-control groups like the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, the bill failed for the fifth consecutive year.

A Baltimore Sun editorial unwisely suggested that Maryland adopt microstamping, a suggestion which drew a published response from Jeff Reh, general counsel and vice-general manager at Maryland-based Beretta USA, who noted in his letter that implementing microstamping would be cost prohibitive to both manufacturers and to gun buyers.
