Use Modern Technology to Solve Gun Crimes

Ballistic identification is the science of connecting a bullet or cartridge case recovered at a crime scene directly to the make, model and serial number of the gun from which it was fired.

A technology called “microstamping” has made comprehensive ballistic identification a reality. Microstamping technology utilizes lasers to make microscopic engravings on the breech face and firing pin of a gun. As the gun is fired, a code identifying the weapon’s serial number is stamped onto the cartridge. This enables police to trace a gun without ever physically recovering it. A traced firearm is a valuable lead in a criminal investigation, because investigators can then connect that weapon to its first purchaser, who may become either a suspect or a source of information helpful to the investigation.

Microstamping promises to revolutionize the way law enforcement officials investigate homicides and other gun crimes.

Please sign this petition calling on your state and federal lawmakers to pass microstamping legislation immediately!

As a microstamped gun is fired, a code identifying the firearm's serial number is stamped onto the ejected cartridge, allowing it to be traced. This technology promises to revolutionize the way law enforcement officials investigate homicides and other gun crimes. Pass legislation immediately to implement microstamping technology.
