AN  ACT  to  amend the penal law, in relation to requiring semiautomatic
  pistols manufactured or delivered to any licensed dealer in this state
  to be capable of microstamping ammunition

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

  Section  1.  Short  title. This act shall be known and may be cited as
the "crime gun identification act of 2011".
  S 2. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature  finds  that  in
2005,  the  national clearance rate for homicide cases was approximately
60% and over 3,000 gun homicide cases went unsolved;  that  in  approxi-
mately half of gun homicide investigations a spent cartridge casing, but
not  a firearm, is recovered at the crime scene; that currently deployed
national ballistic identification systems  cannot  identify  the  serial
number  of  a gun unless the gun itself has been recovered; that firearm
microstamping is a revolutionary forensic technology  that  produces  an
identifiable  alpha-numeric  and  geometric  code  onto  the rear of the
cartridge casing each time a semiautomatic pistol  is  fired;  that  the
alpha-numeric  and  geometric  code on an expended cartridge casing will
provide an initial lead for law enforcement by enabling law  enforcement
to  match the cartridge casing found at a crime to the original owner of
the firearm; that information from completed crime  gun  tracing  is  an
important  element utilized by COMPSTAT and other crime analysis systems
to target illegal firearms trafficking;  that  microstamping  technology

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