Introduced  by  Sen. PERALTA -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Codes

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
continues to  produce  identifiable  markings  onto  expended  cartridge
casings  even after thousands of rounds of testing; that this additional
tool will help law  enforcement  investigate  illegal  gun  trafficking,
close  firearm-related  criminal  cases and protect the public; and that

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