Help Police Solve Gun Crimes: Tell NY State Senate to Pass Microstamping

All too often murders and other gun crimes are not solved because no gun is found at the crime scene, only shell casings. New Microstamping technology can change all that! Our police and law enforcement know that the first piece of evidence, like a shell casing, can be a critical link to solving crimes. Microstamping etches a code onto a shell casing as the gun is fired. The code identifies the gun that fired the bullet and left the casing on the scene. With this code police can immediately begin to solve the crime without the actual gun.

This crime-fighting piece of legislation is supported by 83 police departments and law enforcement organizations throughout New York and by 100 mayors from across the state. Some of these organizations include the New York State Chiefs of Police, District Attorneys Association of New York, the NYS Law Enforcement Council, and the NYS Fraternal Order of Police. Your voice is critical and we need you to take action now!

This Microstamping legislation is not anti-gun, but it is anti-criminal.  The New York State Senate has a choice to make: either vote for Microstamping and stand with law enforcement or vote against Microstamping and stand up for murderers.  

The New York State Senate will vote on this legislation this week! Help persuade the New York State Senate to require this technology.  Stand with law enforcement and please take action - your voice is critical.
