you know an American senator wanted to make a ballistics registry of guns at the manufacturer level, that washington sniper case might have been solved a lot faster.

that is they would be able to trace the bullets to a specific gun and where it was sold which would be a good starting point for an investigation, other than waiting for the next person to be shot.

predictably the gun lobby fought it hard, not sure where it stands at the moment.
