Cuomo asks legislature to scrap worthless bullet tracking system – A failed effort to to track shell casings in the interest of solving crimes appears to be heading to legislative repeal. The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association said they applaud 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, NYSRPA says.
