Chris Rock makes a valid point. Make things unaffordable and they cease to exist, or at least decrease significantly in use. The 500% tax increase rumor may not hold water at the moment, but lawmakers from states that want serialized ammunition and serialized firing pins know these things will drive prices up substantially. New York recently voted down a serialized firing pin bill and the Socialist Republic of New Jersekstan would just LOVE to have serialized ammunition!

Like the bizarre lead ideas, some of these issues are only a vote away from becoming law.
