Title: MICRO Act Make Identifiable Criminal Rounds Obvious Act

Subject: Crime and law enforcement: Criminal justice information and records: Firearms and explosives: Fraud offenses and financial crimes: Licensing and registrations: Trade restrictions

Description: Requires certain semiautomatic pistols to be capable of microstamping ammunition.

Violators are subject to fines. The bill also makes it unlawful for any person to remove, obliterate, or alter the microstamped code or microstamping capability of a firearm that has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce. Violators are subject to fines and suspension or revocation of any firearms license.
