Guns Found Here

18th April 2018

A very clever film that communicates in a creative way the scale of the gun problem in America. Every time a gun related felony is committed in America, a trace is run in the ATF’s National Tracing Centre, Martinsburg, West Virginia. The rate of these traces (8000 a day), and the volume of records to check is so huge, that there is literally not enough man power to complete them. To further exacerbate the problem, federal laws prohibit the digitalisation of these records. Americans, they love them guns.
