Courtesy of State Rep. Sonya Harper (D-Chicago), the idea to have all bullets traced using bullet serial number technology has been resurrected as an attempt to minimize violence in Chicago.
Promoting the new law along with Harper is the CEO of Ammo Coding Systems, a company that – not surprisingly – makes and promotes bullet tracking technology.
State Rep. Sonya Harper believes that this is the answer to solve the notorious violence problems in Chicago. According to a WGNTV article, Harper stated the following in a press conference: “We just want to know how the guns and the bullets are getting in the hands of our youth and causing senseless harm and murder on our streets.”
These ACS worms have been around for a while, always trying to wiggle their way around and push legislation on various state and local politicians. Any new law to put individual serial numbers on bullets could potentially create chaos for law abiding gun owners, causing people to have to fill out paperwork for ammunition the same way you would when purchasing a gun. It would also hike up the cost of ammunition for gun owners.
Harper introduced the bill on Tuesday during a press conference.
