I’m not sure what planet New Yorkers Against Gun Violence lives in, but it’s not this one:
Microstamping legislation is supported by more than 100 mayors and 80 police departments and law enforcement organizations from across New York who know it would provide an additional tool to help solve gun crimes and get violent criminals off the streets.
Is it that surprising 100 mayors and 80 police chiefs in New York are fools? These are the same folks that convinced New York State that CoBIS, New York’s ballistic database, was absolutely an essential law enforcement tool as well, and even USA Today admits it’s been pretty much worthless, and Maryland’s database doesn’t fare much better.
Our opponents aren’t experts in much of anything these days, except hysterical rantings. But this is new, and better technology. Just trust them. It’s essential. And it won’t cost much.
