probably the idea of one of those gun experts at office that say that a semi auto AR is an assault weapon, give me a break!!!!
its a pretty dumb idea. you cant match a case to a gun after months of use much less years. as the gun functions it will develop flaws in the bolt face extracter ejector and chamber changing it drasticaly from when it was first created.
the only way forensic ballistics to work is to recover the gun very quickly after a crime before further use alters or adds more flaws to the critical work areas.
trying to match a gun to a old bullet or case only works in detective fiction and csi miami. its a huge waste of taxpayer money. the only thing itdoes is make hoplophobes feel good.
