Assemblyman Will Barclay is up in arms over language in the proposed Assembly budget bill that would govern gun manufacturers.
The Assembly budget bill A9055C is 73 pages long and includes topics ranging from disaster preparedness and state contracting as well as microstamping.
Microstamping, Barclay said, is a stand-alone issue. He added it was “ludicrous” that it was included in the budget bill.
Barclay said he opposes microstamping because it would put unnecessary burdens on gun manufacturers and has not proven to be successful.
