Existing law requires the Department of Justice to compile a roster listing all of the handguns that have been determined not to be unsafe handguns and requires that handguns be equipped with microscopic characters used to identify the pistol, imprinted on the interior of the pistol and transferred to each cartridge case when the firearm is fired to be included on the roster.

This bill would require those microscopic characters to be imprinted in 2 or more places on the interior of the pistol.
