Porzio Governmental Affairs Coordinates Microstamping Technology Demonstration on Behalf of Client Brady United Against Gun Violence

On June 14th, New Jersey Acting Attorney General Matthew J. Platkin, Senate Majority Leader M. Teresa Ruiz, and Brady United Against Gun Violence held a live demonstration of microstamping technology, a cutting-edge forensic technology used for tracing bullet casings to the firearm that they were discharged from. Todd Lizotte, one of the co-inventors of microstamping, demonstrated the technology. The New Jersey legislature is currently considering a bill, S1462/A2216, that would implement microstamping technology for newly manufactured semi-automatic pistols sold in the state. Only two states in the country, California and New York, have passed microstamping laws. The demonstration occurred at the Newark Police Department shooting range on Delancey Street in Newark, NJ.
