Times Union reporter Jay Jochnowitz says opponents of microstamping are liars. From their July 4 op-ed, “A legacy to honor as your own“:
“If you haven’t read the Declaration of Independence lately, or ever, give it a read today. It is an inspiring piece of work that will send a chill down your spine … Do we do it justice when, as we saw in the fight over a proposed New York law to require microstamping of shell casings in semiautomatic weapons, supposed defenders of the Second Amendment assert that the law would effectively bar the sale of such guns in the state if the technology wasn’t ready? The law, in fact, would do no such thing, but the “big lie” prevailed …”
