|Description-Abstract||The vast majority of people who either visit or sell guns at gun shows are law-abiding citizens and dealers. However, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) reports that 30 percent of guns involved in federal illegal gun trafficking investigations are connected to gun shows. This multi-state undercover investigation exposed how easy it is for criminals to buy guns at gun shows. The City of New York investigated 7 gun shows in 3 states -- Nevada, Ohio, and Tennessee -- involving buys from 47 gun sellers using hidden cameras. The investigation videos showed that 35 out of 47 sellers approached by undercover investigators at these gun shows sold guns illegally.|
