When they do that, it's an attempt to delay things a bit... so that they can try to slip it in at a later date, without folks noticing they've done it. Unfortunately for them, now that people have immediate access to the record, hiding bills like this gets extremely difficult. Sometimes they do this out of pressure from the public... but I'd be willing to bet that they're going to try to sneak this through or find some way to tie it to a public issue. Since the firearms used in the VT shooting clearly legally belonged to the shooter, microstamping wouldn't have done a darned thing... just be further confirmation of what we already know - the guns were purchased legally by the shooter.
