In 24 years prosecuting murders, I have had latent print examiners try to lift prints from hundreds of spent cartridge cases found at crime scenes. Not once has a print been found. That means these folks must be talking about prints on unfired cartridges found in recovered firearms. If that's so--and because we rarely recover a firearm we can tie to a particular homicide and because handling cartridges is weak evidence of having fired a weapon at a particular time--this new technique will be of very limited value in solving and prosecuting homicides.
