PA to Better Track Crime Guns

The Pennsylvania attorney general’s office says it wants to improve the management and use of firearms-sales databases so that law enforcement can better clamp down on gun violence. Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced today that he wants police departments to enter serial numbers from every crime gun into a law-enforcement database so that its original seller can be identified.
His office says most crime guns aren’t being entered, as the law requires. Most guns used in crimes change hands multiple times, and a small number of firearms are used in a large number of crimes, Shapiro said.
