What's Your Opinion?

Compiled by Bill O’Neill

Question: State Senate Republicans and a few Upstate Democrats refused to support a measure that would require bullet casings to have unique markings to aid DAs and law enforcement in tracing weapons? Do you think ammunition should have special IDs? Briefly explain


“Yes, they should have unique markings. It makes it easier to trace. That’ll help solve a lot of crimes.” –Akisha Gonzales, Canarsie “Yes, they should have unique markings. It makes it easier to trace. That’ll help solve a lot of crimes.” –Akisha Gonzales, Canarsie
“I don’t think it really matters, unless the gun and ammunition have the same ID. How can they really trace it?” –Natasha Spencer, Canarsie “I don’t think it really matters, unless the gun and ammunition have the same ID. How can they really trace it?” –Natasha Spencer, Canarsie
“I absolutely do believe that this is a good idea. If it’s going to help us reduce crime then I can’t imagine why any responsible citizen would oppose it.” –Beverly Miller, Canarsie “I absolutely do believe that this is a good idea.

“I don’t think it will help. If they change the requirements for guns and ammunition, it will just cause more violence and unrest.” –Jordan Mbadiwe, Canarsie “I don’t think it will help. If they change the requirements for guns and ammunition, it will just cause more violence and unrest.” –Jordan Mbadiwe, Canarsie
