wow, I didn't know about this. very interesting to see a failure like this.
Yes, more asinine government waste. The idiocy of the ballistic fingerprinting program is only exceeded by the idiocy of the bureaucrats that came up with the idea.
Cant disagree here. You know you would have thought that someone would simply think you know since the gun wears away over time this finger printing isnt going to be very helpful if this gun is used alot. a freakin kid could probably figure that out. why cant politicians?
HOW DARE THEY!
do these morons think criminals are going to stay inthe stoneage? hell they evolve faster than forensic science ever thought of. to think they dont know anything about "throw away guns" is ridiculous.
by this logic, there was a line someplace where one who like to steal could get a weapon?
Not to mention the fact that it takes all of 2 minutes with a simple tool to alter the rifling such that the fingerprint has changed to the degree that no computer search could ever match it. I mean, doh!
This story, posted in your sig, has gotten more outlandish over the years, and while amusing, it is quite false.
The true story: (emphasis added my me)
Interesting piece. Learned some stuff. Now I have a headache. :duh3:
Perhaps one of the reasons that fingerprinting has not resulted in arrests is because the guns purchased and identified by this system belong to law abiding citizens. I know this is a gross oversimplification, but this just proves the old saw that "when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns".
Good point. Isn't that how it is in Britain now?
Crap---I thought we were gonna be able to nab them law abiding gun toters! :bat:
