I have heard people talking about ammo being developed that will quit firing after a certain period of time. They say the gubmint is pushing it. Is this true or just BS rumors?

If you buy some of it, it is easy to remember when it goes bad. It has the same replacement interval as the muffler bearings on your car.....Sorry couldn't resist. I have seen this spread all over the internet. Lets play devils advocate for a second. If this mythological ammunition ever did manifest, think about it for a second. People buy ammunition for self protection. If you are in a life and death situation and the expiration date on your ammo has expired, you could sue the **** out of the manufacture if you were harmed in the incident if your weapon FTF'd. Furthermore, from as scientific standpoint, how could a manufacturer accurately make the primer or powder have a specific half life? The math and the science don't add up. This is a rumor most likely started by some nut job who should never be allowed to own a gun or some bleeding liberal who has no level of education but an internet connection. Just my .02 cents.
Well...humm...they could install a small RFID tag into the base of every brass casing. Then, they modify the gun to read the data on that casing and disable the trigger. You could probably build ammo and guns like that except the cost would be out of this world and no way to retro fit existing guns. Then, someone would find a method to get around the RFID expiration by freezing your ammo for example. Humm...also, maybe they could simply stamp a date on the bottom of the casing that you gun reads? I guess anything is possible but not much is practical!!! All of this is sort of like the James Bond scenarios with owner trigger/grip technology for the gun that disables or zaps anyone else. It would be cool to own one! I am still waiting for the programmable bullets like the movie with Tom Selleck in Runaway!
