    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Rep. Bill Crawford (D) District 98 has introduced HB 1260. This is a nasty bill. It is the same bill that was passed and signed into law in California last year by Gov. Schwarzenegger. It requires all ammunition manufacturers to encode all ammo that can be firedin handguns and assault weapons. Encoded ammunition. Requires ammunition manufacturers to encode all ammunition: (1) provided for retail sale in Indiana; and (2) used in handguns and assault weapons; by July 1, 2009. Prohibits a person from selling ammunition at retail after June 30, 2009, unless the ammunition has been encoded by a manufacturer. Requires the superintendent of the state police department to establish and maintain an encoded ammunition data base before July 1, 2009. Requires ammunition manufacturers and persons who sell ammunition at retail to provide certain information concerning encoded ammunition sales and persons who purchase encoded ammunition to the superintendent for inclusion in the data base. Imposes a fee of $0.05 per round on the sale of encoded ammunition that is sold at retail. Requires the fees to be deposited in the encoded ammunition data base fund to operate the data base. Requires a person who owns ammunition for a handgun or assault weapon that is not encoded ammunition to dispose of the ammunition before July 1, 2011. Makes an appropriation.
    This bill is in the Public Policy Committee chaired by Rep. Trent VanHaaften.
    I recommend everyone call both of these Reps. to oppose this bill. You can call toll free 1-800-382-9842 and have your call patched into each of their offices. Be sure to leave your name and be firm, but polite in your statement.
    You can call direct at 317-232-9600.
