Say 'Buh Bye' to CoBIS?

New York is actually doing something intelligent and is proposing dumping its $44m boondoggle defacto gun registration through ballistic fingerprinting scheme. From the NYSRPA:

ALBANY, NY (01/22/2012)(readMedia)-- The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association applauds Governor Cuomo's proposal to scrap the Combined Ballistic Identification System (CoBIS). After collecting over 356,000 spent shell casings since March 2001 at an estimated cost of nearly $44 million, not a single crime has been solved because of the program.

"By any rational measure, CoBIS has been a total failure," said NYSRPA President Tom King. "What is astounding is that there are actually elected officials defending it. Only in Albany would you find people who think that a program which has run for more than 10 years without producing a single result is good public policy."

NYSRPA strongly encourages the legislature to put an end to this farce and pass A-1131/S-459.

I'll disagree w/ Mr. King on one point, it's not just in Albany. There are anti-gun fanatics like that scattered throughout the country. Just look at DC, Chicago and CA for examples.

Watch the freedom haters pile on top of each other to defend this documented failure.

Yep. The Bradyites will be all over this. "It's for the children" or some such bullshit.
