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.
