There is this technology that some people say could take crime fighting from the Stone Age to the Space Age. The New York State Legislature is set to vote on a bill that would require semiautomatic pistol makers to use new technology called micro stampers. Lasers engrave codes on the inside of the gun when it's made so when the gun is fired the codes are stamped to the shell casing. Police officers could read the codes on the casings, identify the gun, and track down the buyer.
The bill, though, is causing a pretty big controversy. Michelle Schimel, a Democrat in the New York State Assembly and sponsor of the bill, and Republican member Brian Kolb, who is against the bill, discuss the controversy on "Starting Point."
