BILL NUMBER: S1152 TITLE OF BILL : An act to repeal section 396-ff of the general business law relating to the pistol and revolver ballistic identification databank PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL : To discontinue the use of the New York Combined Ballistic Identification System (CoBIS) and to remove the shell casing requirement from state law. JUSTIFICATION : It is the conclusion of two studies by the California Department of Justice conducted two years ago and a 2004 study conducted by the Maryland State Police that the ballistic database systems in these states are a waste of time, money and manpower. The Maryland report cited the complete failure of the New York Combined Ballistic Identification System (CoBIS) to produce a single "hit" on a gun crime as complete failure of that system. The CoBIS system is costing taxpayers approximately $4 million per year and it is a certainty that the State Police could find a better use for those millions.
