Federal Microstamping Study Bill Introduced

The National Shooting Sports Foundation is reporting that Rep.Dan Boren (D-OK) has introduced HR 5667 which directs the Attorney General to work with the National Academy of Sciences to conduct a comprehensive study of microstamping. Rep. Boren is a NRA Board member.

It appears that the NSSF is supporting this as a way of preventing more state legislatures from adopting microstamping requirements given that all independent studies to date show it doesn't work

The co-sponsors are a bipartisan mix and so far include Reps. Broun (R-Ga.), Bishop (R-Utah), Herseth Sandlin (D-SD), Altmire (D-Pa.), Miller (R-Fl.) and Boozman (R- Ark.).
