  •  As you note, marking on shell casings (0+ / 0-)

    can be easily circumvented by picking up your spent casings. Not all criminals are that careful however, so it could help solve some crimes. I wonder how expensive it would be to stamp each casing with a unique number?

    •  CA requires Firearm microstamping for new guns (4+ / 0-)

      see http://en.wikipedia.org/...

      The gun's firing pin gets laser etched markings unique to the gun.  When a cartridge is fired, the casing shows the markings if the gun's firing pin on the casing.

      Criminals can defeat this by either using a gun without microstamping or by filing the etching off the firing pin.

      The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
