New York now, among other things, requires that all handguns sold in the state have microstamping technology installed in them.
New York citizens buy approximately half a million firearms a year. In contrast, Floridians buy about three times that many, 1.5 million.
My prediction is that this law will do nothing for solving crime, but that isn’t the goal. The goal here is to make owning a firearm impossibly expensive.
In case you are interested, Texans buy the most guns (1.6 million), Florida the runner up (1.4 million), then California (1.1 million), Pennsylvania (1 million), and Tennessee rounding out the top 5 with 700,00 firearms sold per year.
All of this because of an average of less than 20 fatalities a year involving shootings on school campus. Not mass shootings on school campus, ALL shootings on school campus, even those that happened when no students were present (at night, summer break, weekends, etc.) and it was simply one drug dealer shooting another.
