Ammo Coding Systems. A non-IL company. Lets take a look at some tidbits from their 'fact sheet' on how 'reasonable' this idea is:
So registration, more licensing, and taxes/fees.
So the complete redesign of manufacturing facilities and millions of dollars in expenses both initial and long-term, all which will either put the company out of business or be passed onto consumers. Which they admit. There's also the bit about 'licensing fee' which can be withdrawn arbitrarily.
And if you like your healthcare, you can keep it.
What is the impact on retailers and consumers?Ammunition retailers will also have some minor administrative costs. These costs, like other costs associated with doing business will most likely be passed onto the retailer purchaser. We estimate that the entire ACS process can be implemented without dramatically increasing the purchase price to the end user while maintaining an effective crime fighting system paid for almost exclusively by user fees.
Here's another clincher:
Kind of a giveaway as to their real goals, isn't it? What about the 'uncommon' calibers or those not regularly made in the US? Oh Right.
This isn't about 'safety' or 'crime', this is about making it nearly impossible for law abiding citizens to get ammo and to put the companies out of business if they try to comply.
