Test results from the New York State Wadsworth Laboratories has confirmed the H1N1 influenza (Swine flu) virus in a patient in Oneida County. These results mark the first local finding for H1N1 influenza since the strain first surfaced in Mexico more than two months ago and quickly spread to more than 40 countries.
Oneida County Executive Anthony J. Picente, Jr. today announced his support for ammunition microstamping. Microstamping is a technology that uses a laser to make engravings on the internal mechanism of a gun. This is done so that when the gun is fired, this specific engraving is imprinted onto the casing, identifying which gun the casing came from. This legislation would mean all new models of all semiautomatic firearms manufactured in the state would possess the capability of microstamping ammunition.
