Contact New York Senators today and ask them to support microstamping legislation.

I stand with 100 mayors and 83 police departments and law enforcement organizations from across New York State in calling on the State Senate to pass new handgun microstamping legislation.

Microstamping technology is a critical tool in the fight against gun crime. It stamps a tiny unique code on ammunition that's fired from a handgun. Criminals often leave shell casings behind at crime scenes, and microstamping helps law enforcement officers use that evidence to track down the gun and the criminal who pulled the trigger.
