Smith & Wesson has announced it will no longer sell its semi-automatic firearms in California. A state law that went into effect last spring requires those kinds of guns to have microstamping technology which leaves a mark on each cartridge. Gun control advocates say the feature makes it easier to trace guns.
In a statement Smith & Wesson says the technology is unreliable, expensive and not proven to prevent or help solve crimes. The company says the majority of its semi-automatic weapons will be out of compliance with California’s law by August 2014.
