California Moves Toward Ballistics Fingerprinting By Chris Rizo CNSNews.com Correspondent December 11, 2002 Sacramento (CNSNews.com) - A bill introduced Tuesday in the California Legislature would lay the groundwork for a ballistics fingerprinting system. Specifically, Senate Bill 35 would require gun makers and sellers to begin storing ballistics data while state legislators consider how to fund a database program that would apply to all guns, including rifles. Sen. Jack Scott, a Democrat, introduced the measure, which supporters have described as "DNA for guns." Under the proposal, gun manufacturers would have to test-fire all guns manufactured and/or sold in California, then digitally record the unique impression etched on spent bullets and shell-casings -- the so-called ballistics fingerprint. In theory, a bullet or shell casing recovered from a crime scene could be checked against the "fingerprints" stored in a state database to find out who owns a particular gun. "Nobody has anything to fear in this but the criminals," Scott said. "And law enforcement has a lot to gain." With billion-dollar revenue shortfalls on the Golden State's horizon, it might be years before the state would have the money to set up a ballistics database, Scott acknowledged.

[b]$23,000,000,000[/b] in the hole, and they want to spend more money on ballistic fingerprinting and universal healthcare. I can't wait to see the US Gov (ME!) bail them out this time.

- Roberti-Roos '89 AW ban - Roberti-Roos AW ban Amendments - California allows people to register "assault weapons" late, then the State later says sorry guys we weren't allowed to let you register late and makes gunowners turn-in their firearms. - "junk gun" law - L.A. Bans gunshows - SB23 AW ban '99 - State "buy-back" program for SKS paratrooper carbines. - CA Supreme Court ruling on AR15 series and AK47 series - State certified gun safes and trigger locks law - L.A. Bans .50 cal rifles - Required Registration of gun owners in 2003 and now "ballistic finger printing?" when will it ever end?

It will never end. They will ban, re-ban, triple ban, and eventually Uber ban all firearms. But crime will remain. So they will pass laws restricting other rights like travel. God knows people travel before they commit crime. et cetera ::adjusts tinfoil::

San Mateo County has recently banned gun shows on state property. Attacking the gun industry is 'hip' these days. You know about us Kalibans and how we want to be 'hip', and 'cutting edge', and not 'old school'. [;D]

Yup, my town is running a huge budget deficit this year, but it did not stop them from installing surveillance cameras downtown. WTF?

I think he means militia. fight4yourrights, speaking about bailouts, was it not the PA steel industry who was behind the steel import tariffs, and then went on to ask the feds to pick up the tab for retiree health care, which was in the $$$ billions? If you want to talk bailouts, you might want to first address the rust belt.

New York. I've never seen evidence that either state has solved a single crime with their brass collections.

This despite the study done by their own DA showing that this won't do any good. No my friends, this won't work to solve any crime.
