Gun Trafficking : Mexico & the Southwest Border Challenge Hardback
Edited by Harper A Montgomery
ATF has developed a nation-wide strategy to reduce firearms trafficking and violent crime by seeking to prevent convicted felons, drug traffickers, and juvenile gang members from acquiring firearms from gun traffickers.
These criminals often acquire firearms from persons who are otherwise not prohibited from possessing firearms, or by buying firearms from corrupt federal firearms licensees who sell firearms off-the-books in an attempt to escape federal regulation.
This book examines the policy questions for Congress regarding the magnitude of Southwest border gun trafficking, the use and significance of ATF crime gun trace data, the possible ratification of an Inter-American Gun Trafficking Convention, and the adequacy of the federal statutes to deter and reduce illegal gun trafficking.
