“We must do everything we can to ensure gun violence can be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said the bill’s author, U.S. Rep. Anthony Brown, D-Md., in a statement. “Microstamping offers law enforcement the chance to track bullet casings to the source of the crime, and is one more step we can take to ensure the safety of the American people.”
What are "bullet casings"? And how does an investigator track it to the source of the crime? One assumes all would-be murderers will now queue to have the firing pins of their firearms engraved with some or other unique hieroglyph. Revolvers do not eject empty cases so Saturday Night Specials are the way to go, Chicago!
This is not a California bill, by the way - THIS IS WASHINGTON DC!
