Johns Hopkins, which used to do good work, but is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Bloomberg, has come out in favor of microstamping.

They aren’t very bright. Microstamping is useless without firearm registration, so we know that is what is next, should they even get this technology (off site PDF alert) to be passed. However, the problems don’t stop there.
  • No manufacturer has ever manufactured a firearm with microstamping. Why? A reliable way of doing it hasn’t been invented yet.
  • All you need to thwart it is a nailfile applied to the end of the firing pin.
  • As a bonus, a murderer could just scatter brass casings that he picked up from the firing range around the crime scene
  • What if the gun used was stolen?
  • What if that gun has a replacement firing pin?

That doesn’t stop the medical people at Johns Hopkins from attempting to push for things in a field where they have no experience whatsoever. They just whore out their credentials to whomever is willing to pay.

The paper touts California’s law, passed in 2007, that requires new models of handgun sold to be equipped with this unicorn technology. They don’t mention that the law was found to be unconstitutional.

Then they attempt to make it into a racial issue by claiming this:

One analysis of major U.S. cities found that law enforcement makes an arrest in only
35% of firearm homicides and 21% of firearm assaults when the victim was Black or Hispanic/Latino compared to 53% and 37% respectively when the victim was white.

You know why that is? Because in white neighborhoods, “firearm homicides” are usually solved when the cops arrive to find the shooter still standing over the decedent’s body with the gun still in his hand. Many of them are also legal self defense shootings. Contrast that with black neighborhoods, where the majority of homicides where a firearm was the means employed involve disputes over gang territory, drug deals, or simple drive by shootings. When police arrive, no one claims to have seen a thing.

A large portion of these unsolved shootings are perpetrated by guns that were recently trafficked and diverted into the illegal market.

Criminals steal guns and then use them to commit crimes? I’m shocked. Hey, explain to me how microstamping will in any way help in solving a crime involving a stolen firearm.

For example, an analysis of five years of data from the ATF found that more than 40% (528,855) of crime guns recovered by police and traced were used in a crime within three years of their initial retail sale at a licensed dealer.

Again, misleading. Used in crime? What crime? Theft? What about the guns recovered by police and not traced? This is a carefully worded statement, intended to mislead the reader.

No, this is where the conclusion leads them:

Microstamping should deter gun dealers and owners from selling or transferring their gun to someone who might commit a crime because microstamping evidence should lead law enforcement to the person who initially purchased the gun from a retail seller.

Of course, no criminal will be smart enough to replace the firing pin.

microstamping works, the best system involves tiny fairies inside the gun to impress the stamp onto the bullet before firing. The systems main issue is the fairie resource is short because so many are employeed collecting unicorn farts for green energy industry

Science has been for sale for years, its just gotten really obvious the last few years.


    exile1981 · September 27, 2023 at 11:15 am

    Hmmm my 1st paragraph above had snarc on and snark off in brackets before and after it but they didnt print. Yes i was being snarky in that comments on fairies.

      I speak sarcasm. I got it from the tone.

Everything you mention has been discussed at length…why do they think this is a good idea now? Its all been debunked as BS.

A comment on replacement firing pins:

What’s the round count on the stamping detail before it wears off naturally? 500 rounds, 1k rounds?

Getting a replacement firing pin would then be a red tape nightmare. Every manufacturer would have to keep every stamping detail on file and manufacture a new custom pin for everyone at whatever the rate of replacement would be. And who is going to make sure everyone’s pin is legible all the time?

So many issues….🙄

    For them, these are not bugs, but features.

Kevin Baker curb stomped this idiocy years back. I imagine he’s not thrilled to see it making a return performance.

This kind of crap just adds to the distrust that the medical industry has heaped upon themselves during covid.

Stealth Spaniel · September 27, 2023 at 11:44 am

Just as every criminal makes sure that ALL of his guns are registered and in top notch condition, he will obviously follow ANOTHER GUN REGULATION to the nth degree. Yeah-no. This is about cops wrapping up a crime on one 8 hour shift, collecting some of the King’s Gold and going out for beers with the boys and girls. This is about WHITE folks being good little ones and obeying all stop signs, voting privileges, and certainly holding up that big bad firestick for a teacher’s approval. After all, no one would ever lie, cheat, weasel, or misdirect if it meant jail time. (See political moves for instruction.) This is what happens when you have Republicans-always happy to be number two. As long as they get to go to the best parties, say hello to King Charles (Squee!!), and fly first class. 28 of them just voted to send more money to Ukraine and The Tribe. The whole system is rotten to the core-including most medical institutions.

Amusing… How does this work on say, a revolver? Or is that too old school to be bothered with?

Collect your brass.

These doctors should stay in their lane and set their own house in order. Per the CDC 250,000 Americans die from preventable medical errors every year which makes you 100 times more likely to be killed by an MD than a Crip.

Big Ruckus D · September 27, 2023 at 3:28 pm

Just another pointless and unworkable scam like “green” energy, COVID shots, social justice, DIE, ESG and everything else congenitally stupid leftist fucks ever dream up to screw society sideways.

Oh, and in an odd bit of irony, (((bloomberg’s))) snipdick reportedly tastes like pork.

Wild, wild west · September 27, 2023 at 4:36 pm

The motivation is actually very simple. John Hopkins is happy to do that thing for Michael Bloomberg because they like it.

ModernDayJeremiah · September 27, 2023 at 6:57 pm

That’s a shame from JH. Marty Makary and Peter Pronovost have done some outstanding work on identifying mortality from medical errors and how to reduce the carnage. The “Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Violence Solutions” seems to be unaware that people who commit violent crimes tend not to obey other laws too.

D · September 28, 2023 at 12:31 pm

Seems like there could be a market for some sort of bag add-on for the slide that catches casings…or maybe a piece of metal tubing that redirects the casing into a container below the grip…sorta like how paintball guns have the air tank hanging off the back….as long as it can’t be used as any sort of “stabilizing” container…

“A large portion of these unsolved shootings are perpetrated by guns…”

And just like that, they give the game away.
