Firearms Forensics in the Courtroom
My talk will be on the role of the Firearms Examiner in the Criminal Justice System. The services that the Firearms Examiner can and cannot provide. How discharged ammunition components are capable of being identified back to a specific firearm. I will answer any question the attendees may wish to ask.
