    NYSRPA Opposes Microstamping Bill

    Dozens of students from New York City area schools met with lawmakers in Albany this afternoon for a roundtable discussion on preventing gun violence.

    Led by Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel, D-North Hempstead, the legislators fielding questions from the students and laid out their plan for curbing violence through several pieces of legislation.

    The most popular item on the day's menu was state mandated microstamping on all semi-automatic firearms. Microstamping is a ballistic imprinting technology that uses lasers to engrave microscopic markings on cartridges that, when recovered by police after use in a shooting, can be traced to the retail purchaser.

    "We know it's going to work," Schimel said of microstamping. "Microstamping is going to catch criminals and you're going to be able to track the guns."

    Schimel is the Assembly co-sponsor of a microstamping bill along with Sen. Eric Schniederman, D-Manhattan, who is also Senate co-sponsor on the other two state laws that were discussed: a five-year renewable gun permit law and a gun dealer responsibility act, creating more stringent record keeping and reporting to prevent gun sales to criminals.

    Schimel said that its been a decade since the last sensible gun laws were passed.

    The students and lawmakers also talked about the importance of closing gun show loopholes and different methods of gun trafficking prevention.

    I can see where this would make the cost of ammo go even higher.

    Right... because the criminal are legally buying and registering guns.

    People really need to be smacked upside the head.

    We already have a ballistics database here in NY that contains a casing fired from every gun sold. IIRC it has cost something like $10mil to operate and it's resulted in ZERO crimes solved.

    So after the state has wasted millions of dollars on ballastic fingerprinting they're now pushing for microstamping. Incredible!

    Yeah and to help the economic crisis in the state our governor wants to tax soda and other like beverages instead of getting rid of these types of wasteful spending.

    Imagine the prices of pre-stamped ammunition! Sounds like a better investment than gold.

    Note: If you plan on committing a crime, make sure you hang around a gun range and pick up ammunition. Then simply spread the recovered microstamped rounds all over the crime scene. Instant reasonable doubt!

    No, just reload casings from a range, that way the recovered bullet and casings will have the same powder chemical makeup.
