Microstamping technology provides law enforcement with the tools to quickly link firearm cartridge casings found at the scene of a crime to a specific firearm, without having to recover the firearm itself. The Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence (Ed Fund) is releasing a report exploring this effective and reliable technology, and laying out policy recommendations to require firearms manufacturers across the U.S. to incorporate this effective and reliable technology into every new semi-automatic pistols.
To share the report’s findings and recommendations, the Ed Fund will host a discussion exploring this groundbreaking technology, a powerful tool to help law enforcement interrupt gun trafficking networks, solve more gun crimes, and build trust within the communities they serve. Panelists will discuss the proven value and tremendous potential of microstamping technology.
The panel will be moderated by Josh Horwitz, Executive Director of EFSGV, joined by:
*Kami Chavis, Professor of Law, Director of the Criminal Justice Program, and Vice Provost at Wake Forest University School of Law; Special Advisor to the Executive Director at EFSGV
*Ari Davis, Senior Policy Analyst at EFSGV
*Ofc. Orrin Gallop, Assistant Police Chief and Commander of Investigations for Hampton (Virginia) Police Department
*Todd Lizotte, President & CEO of TACLABS, Inc., co-inventor and leading manufacturer of microstamping technology
EFSGV has been a leader in the effort to require microstamping technology to be incorporated into all new models of semi-automatic pistols. But despite its ease of use and potential to revolutionize crime investigation, manufacturers refuse to produce firearms equipped with this important technology.
