Introduced  by  Sen.  ADAMS  -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Consumer Protection

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; to amend the state finance law, in relation to  establish-
  ing  the  ammunition coding system database fund; and to amend the tax
  law, in relation to establishing a tax  credit  for  manufacturers  or
  dealers who exchange old uncoded ammunition for new coded ammunition

  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 NEW YORK STATE
POLICE 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 NEW YORK STATE POLICE IN A MANNER PRESCRIBED BY  THE  NEW  YORK
STATE  POLICE, AND SHALL MAINTAIN RECORDS ON THE BUSINESS PREMISES FOR A
PERIOD OF SEVEN YEARS CONCERNING ALL  SALES,  LOANS,  AND  TRANSFERS  OF
AMMUNITION TO, FROM, OR WITHIN THE STATE.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD07540-01-1
