CASE ENTRY

National Shooting Sports Foundation, Inc. v. State

California requires some semiautomatic handguns (generally models introduced after 2010) to be stamped with microscopic identifying information. Also, the guns must be equipped to microstamp bullet cartridges when the gun is fired. Plaintiffs: That technology doesn’t exist; complying is impossible. California Supreme Court: California law “never requires impossibilities,” but the microstamping requirement isn’t invalid.
