Summary
"Featuring new and updated information, Firearms, the Law, and Forensic Ballistics, Second Edition offers a comprehensive reference on the forensic science of firearms. The book begins with an overview of firearm development, and then explores firearm law around the world, as well as the pioneers and principles of the new science of forensic ballistics. Allowing a closer look at the operation of modern weapons, the text includes a review of ballistics and explains the role of the ballistics expert. The book also provides guidance on laboratory techniques, setting up databases, the recovery of deleted markings and serial numbers, and the presentations of evidence in court."--Jacket
