In California the law signed in 2007 by Schwarzenegger requires microstamping technology to be unencumbered by patents before the law can take effect.

The original patent owner Todd Lizotte was going to let the patent expire so the technology would be in the public domain. The Calguns Foundation renewed the microstamping patent just before it expired for a mere $555.

Calguns now owns the patent, and the very law that would require all guns to microstamp a case in order to be sold in California won't go into effect.

Calguns-1, California-0
