Firing blanks on ballistic prints
Submitted by: P. Jones

"The sniper spree in the D.C. area has spawned calls for 'ballistic fingerprinting' of firearms."

"Sen. Charles Schumer, New York Democrat, announced he would introduce legislation for a national program. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence told The Washington Post that ballistic fingerprinting would have 'solved this crime after the first shooting.' "

"But an October 2001 report by California state ballistics experts — hushed up by the California attorney general's office — concludes ballistic fingerprinting isn't feasible right now." ...

"Police, not NRA, are right on gun DNA"

"At issue is technology known as ballistic fingerprinting. It uses the distinct marks a gun leaves on shell casings and bullets to link firearms with crimes. Also known as 'gun DNA,' ballistic fingerprints could serve as a shortcut for law enforcement officials in solving the sniper attacks and other murders. A limited database, the National Integrated Ballistics Information Network, run by the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, is already in use, but ..."

CONSIDER...

Human DNA doesn't change, nor do fingerprints. But you can change a gun's internal markings in a couple of minutes. These people using the terms "DNA" and "fingerprints" need to be corrected every time they use them.

"A N.J. bill would eventually require sensors - likely years from sale - that restrict who can fire. A key hearing is today."

"Picture a handgun that knows the feel of its owner so intimately it won't let anyone else pull the trigger." ...

"But groups supporting gun-owner rights see the legislation as a backhanded way to ban nearly every handgun on the market."

"When the Field Museum decided to clean its firearms collection of 300 to 400 weapons, a dicey--but small--sample of explosives turned up."

"Black powder with the power of six or seven sticks of dynamite was lurking in 15 powder horns, a rifle, one pistol and two cannons."

" 'They were all muzzle-loading black powder weapons,' said William Pestle, collections manager in the department of anthropology."

"And their powder was more than ready: Its volatility spikes over time."

"A bump could have set it off, said Pestle, who launched the cleanup in summer 2001. 'They could have done a fair deal of damage had something horrible happened.' " ...

"Restricting firearms has helped make England more crime-ridden than the U.S."

"In reality, the English approach has not re-duced violent crime. Instead it has left law-abiding citizens at the mercy of criminals who are confident that their victims have neither the means nor the legal right to resist them. Imitating this model would be a public safety disaster for the United States." ...

"Security checks, random searches, new airline ticket fees and other hassles since the September 11 attacks have kept many people off planes and on the road, particularly for short trips." [Being disarmed, foolish people preventing pilots from being armed, high school dropouts making nursing mother drink their own milk, confiscating G.I. Joe action dolls...]

"The number of people flying commercially between 200 miles and 400 miles dropped 22 percent in the year after the attacks, according to a survey by D.K. Shifflet & Associates Ltd. in Falls Church." ...

CLUE:
Arm the pilots and many of us will take to the skies again.

"Former talk show host Rosie O'Donnell [who said, "I don't care. Own a gun, go to prison."] has hired a high-profile criminal attorney to take on the case of two brothers accused of fatally beating their sleeping father in his Florida Panhandle home."

"O'Donnell, a foster parent known for supporting children's causes, called Miami attorney Jayne Weintraub two weeks ago and asked her to get involved in the legal fight to win a new trial for Alex and Derek King, ages 13 and 14, Weintraub told The Associated Press Sunday." ...

"The case was tugging at her heart strings. She was offended by what happened to these kids," Weintraub said about O'Donnell. "She told me that she wanted to do something for the boys and asked me if there was something that could be done."

"Alex and Derek were both a year younger when their father, Terry King, 40, was beaten to death with an aluminum baseball bat Nov. 26 while he slept at home in Cantonment."

"A six-member jury concluded that an adult co-defendant, Ricky Chavis, wielded the weapon, but that the boys were accomplices by letting him in the house." ...

"A wit has opined that in addition to calling for national ballistic registration, an extension on the 'assault weapons' ban and expanded gun control in general, the mentally-challenged anti-gun forces now emboldened by the fatal D.C. snipings should also be calling for the outlawing of white delivery vans. After all, white vans also appear to be an integral part of the snipers' murderous activities."

"A van ban would do about as much good, too. After all, several of the shootings took place in Maryland, which already has the totally useless ballistic registration law in place, (and I do mean totally – not a single criminal has ever been caught due to this ridiculous and easily circumvented procedure). And just in case this little fact hasn't completely escaped everyone's attention, shooting people in the head is already against the law!" ...

"Both sides are watching closely now to see whether the Washington-area shooter is indeed using an AR-15, Mini-14 or other .223-caliber 'assault weapons,' as has been reported, because the answer almost certainly would sway lawmakers when the ban expires in 2004."

"Given that Mrs. Townsend (annointed by Gov. Parris Glendening as the state's crime czar) is relentlessly pounding away at Mr. Ehrlich's congressional votes against some gun-control measures and touting her own support for "common sense" regulations like background checks, the combination of hypocrisy and buffoonery involved in this nascent scandal are mindboggling." ...
