Stolen Guns, Crime and Congress | GAG BBK


Center for American Progress studies FBI data and concludes:

  • A gun is stolen in the U.S. every 2 minutes

  • From 2012-15, 1.2 M guns were stolen from individuals and 31,500 from stores.

  • Stolen guns are transferred and traded in underground illegal markets and often end up used in violent crimes.

  • Congress needs to give the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms and Explosives) the authority to require gun dealers to secure their inventory.
