Anonymous Shell Casings:
Unsolved Crimes Waiting for Microstamping to be Passed
New York State Legislators need to stand with law enforcement and pass microstamping. News articles from December 9-27 in which microstamping could have helped.
Every week families across New York are ripped apart by gun violence and law enforcement officers are left to solve heinous crimes with few leads and little or no evidence. Except shell casings. Shell casings are often found at the scene of gun crimes. Microstamping will identify those shell casings and help police put violent criminals behind bars.
NOTE: The number of shooting incidents in which microstamping could have been helpful for law enforcement during this time period is not limited to the articles listed above. Countless gun crimes are committed every day in which only shell casings are recovered at the crime scene but many incidents involving shell casings are not published by the media.
