AN  ACT to amend the general business law and the penal law, in relation
  to establishing a statewide database to maintain and track coded ammu-
  nition and establishing penalties for  individuals  who  violate  such
  provisions;  and to amend the state finance law, in relation to estab-
  lishing the ammunition coding system database fund

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  findings.  The legislature hereby finds that
each year in the United States more than thirty percent of all homicides
involving a gun go unsolved. Handgun ammunition  accounts  for  approxi-
mately  eighty  percent of all ammunition sold within the United States.
Current technology for matching a bullet used in a crime to the gun that
fired it has worked moderately well for years, but presupposes that  the
weapon  was recovered by law enforcement. Ammunition coding is a new and
effective way for law enforcement to quickly identify persons of  inter-
est in gun crime investigations.
  S  2. The general business law is amended by adding a new section 396-
gg to read as follows:
  S 396-GG. AMMUNITION CODING SYSTEM DATABASE. 1. THE DIVISION OF CRIMI-
NAL JUSTICE SERVICES IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ESTABLISHING AND MAINTAINING  AN
AMMUNITION  CODING  SYSTEM  DATABASE  CONTAINING  INFORMATION  FROM  THE
FOLLOWING:
  A. THE MANUFACTURER REGISTRY. (I) EVERY  MANUFACTURER  SHALL  REGISTER
WITH THE DIVISION OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE SERVICES IN A MANNER PRESCRIBED BY
THE  DIVISION, AND SHALL MAINTAIN RECORDS ON THE BUSINESS PREMISES FOR A

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
