Ammo Coding Push Coming From A Single Company

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) yesterday called on lawmakers in Washington state, Arizona, New York, Illinois, Hawaii and several other states to scrutinize legislation that would require ammunition coding, because it mandates a soul source monopoly for a Seattle-based company that owns the technology.

"Creating a technology, and applying for a patent while hiring a consulting firm to push legislation that requires this technology is horribly self-serving," Gottlieb added. "The fact that in every state these measures are being pushed, the sponsors are anti-gun lawmakers, simply adds to the suspicion."

Sort of a solution in search of a problem. Yep. Smells fishy.
