NYT: Foes stall method to link shell casings to guns - US news - The New York Times - msnbc.com
“I think it is one of these things in law enforcement that would just take us from the Stone Age to the jet age in an instant,” said Commissioner Frederick Bealefeld III of the Baltimore Police Department. “I just can’t comprehend the opposition to it.”
How many states need to pass laws requiring this, and then realize it is not even viable yet, before they stop trying to push it?
And why do they continue to believe that measures taken to track legal, law abiding gun owners, will help them prevent crimes by criminals who by nature do not follow the laws. If they are going to murder someone, do you really think that they will not file down the end of the firing pin to remove the stamp, or just swap out the pins all together? What idiots!
