'Fingerprinting' Guns

October 15, 2002

Regarding the Oct. 10 letter proposing "fingerprinting" of guns by the markings they make on bullets and shell casings: This would not work. A few seconds with a file will change the profile any barrel puts on a bullet. Not only that, rifling marks change with wear and time. Dream on about catching terrorists by destroying American rights.
