Without A Trace | Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence

Without A Trace

In the first report of Gun Industry Watch, Without A Trace exposes how the gun lobby, working with the Bush Administration and its allies in Congress, has protected corrupt gun dealers by systematically blocking the release of information identifying the gun dealers responsible for selling most of the crime guns recovered in America. Without a Trace explains the development and value of ATF's crime gun trace data - data which has established that strong gun laws have a profound impact on access to guns by criminals in the illegal market, and identified the gun manufacturers, distributors, and dealers most responsible for supplying crime guns.

Without A Trace exposes the gun lobby's efforts in Congress to prevent ATF from releasing any more crime gun trace data, thereby helping the gun industry cover up its participation in supplying the illegal gun market.
