Microstamps put serial numbers on bullets, but laws needed for new guns

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence announced on Tuesday that machines which create microstamps in new guns are ready to go into mass production. The machinery uses the same technology developed for medical devices and semi conductors, the coalition announced in a webinar.

“Within hours, microstamping provides a direct link between a spent cartridge case and a firearm – even when the firearm is not recovered — and can link it to other shootings where the same firearm was used which could help identify gun trafficking networks,” said Ari Davis, Policy Analyst at the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence, in a prepared statement.
