ENCODING AMMUNITION & REGISTERING SALES
The purpose is to establish an investigative linkage between a bullet recovered at the scene of a firearms incident and the original purchaser. All bullets, in loaded ammunition or marketed separately as components, that are usable in handguns and/or assault riles would be encoded with a marker that uniquely identifies the box or package in which it is intended to be delivered to the final purchaser. Using the proposed technology, the marker would be etched multiple times by laser on the base of the projectile. This identifier would then be coded on the exterior of the box or package so as to be readable visually or by a bar code reader at the point of sale.
This legislation should not be enacted. The technology is not commercially viable and the utility of the end product limited, at best.
This technology has not been sufficiently developed to mandate its use in a production environment. The implementation of emerging technologies, even on a limited basis, requires the use of the best standards process for demonstrating reliability and cost effectiveness. While this proposal may sound simple in concept, a closer examination shows that there are major questions that must be addressed and consequences to be considered before determining the viability of the proposed legislation.
