    Your lawyer would need to: 1) Make a formal request that the police preserve and/or conduct forensic (DNA/fingerprinting) testing on the weapon; and 2) Obtain a court order directing that the police custodian of the weapon allow inspection by the expert (that you hire) for the purposes of conducting tests.

    Your cousins. Your family. You file the motion by filing the motion. The problem is you do not know what motion to file. So, retain an attorney.

    If you haven't done so already, it's time to hire the best attorney you can afford. Discovery requests and motions are not that simple to prepare and argue to a judge.

    You or your attorney should file a motion with the court asking the Judge to order the commonwealth to have its ballistician fingerprint the weapons or if you have your own expert, ask the court for permission to have your own expert fingerprint the weapons.

    A good lawyer or public defender knows how to do this. I assume the guns are in the custody of the police. The police may test them for prints. The defense can hire a confidential defense expert in finger prints that can often take custody of the guns and attempt to get prints off of them. A request to the DA and sometimes a motion to the court are necessary. If it is early in the case, likely these will be denied until the police have a reasonable opportunity to test them. Good luck.
