What are they smoking besides forests?

 8/30/20 San Francisco Chronicle:

Newsom now has a month to decide whether to sign AB2847, which would would require that semiautomatic pistols sold in the state leave a single unique imprint on bullets that are fired rather than two, as currently required. The marking, which reveals a gun’s make, model and serial number, are meant to help law enforcement investigations.

I guess revolvers are not a problem. 

“This is a bill that will assist law enforcement in solving gun-related crimes via microstamping technology and reduce the number of accidental gun deaths and injuries,” Chiu said Sunday on the Assembly floor. The measure passed on a 43-13 vote.

Accidental deaths? This refers to the other requirements for inclusion on Handgun Roster. More interesting and worrisome:
The Department of Justice shall, for each semiautomatic pistol newly added to the roster pursuant to Section 32015, remove from the roster exactly three semiautomatic pistols lacking one or more of the applicable features described in paragraphs (4), (5), and (6) of subdivision (b) and added to the roster before July 1, 2022.

This means that any new model added to the "safe" handguns list forces three older guns off the list.

    Revolvers tend NOT to leave casings behind.

    Which is a good reason to own one.

    I'm surprised they know enough about firearms to exclude revolvers.

    OTOH, they may know so little that they think semiautomatic includes revolvers.
