homicides and firearms

Approximately 70%–75% of homicides are committed with firearms. Write 4–5 pages that answer the following questions:

Part 1

  • Explain how a handgun is manufactured, most specifically the bore of the barrel.
  • Why is rifling present in the bore of the barrel? What is the purpose of rifling?
  • Compare and contrast a revolver versus a semiautomatic handgun. How is the caliber of a handgun determined?
  • Explain the difference between a bullet, shell casing, and a projectile.
  • When examining a handgun, projectile, or shell casing, provide examples of class and individual characteristics.
  • What is the difference between a perforating gunshot wound and a penetrating gunshot wound?
  • Compare and contrast the characteristics of an entrance wound versus an exit wound.

Part 2

  • What are the characteristics that might exist or not exist for determining the muzzle-to-target distance?
  • There are four ranges. At each range, what is the muzzle-to-target distance?
    • contact to near contact
    • close range
    • medium range
    • distant range
  • Explain the characteristics that might exist or not exist at each range. For example, a bullet hole will be a characteristic at each range.
  • What types of evidence would an investigator document from a handgun of a death scene?
