"This report is a major development for ATF in terms of their transparency."

Lindsay Nichols, policy director with the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, regarding the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ expansive federal report on guns used in crimes in two decades, using data from 2017 to 2021. The report found that 54 percent of traced crime guns were recovered by law enforcement more than three years after their purchase, more than 1 million firearms were stolen from private citizens in that time and the involvement of “ghost guns” in crime is increasing.
