The Hidden Life of Guns
The Hidden Life of Guns is a year-long investigation by four Washington Post reporters documenting the way guns move through American society, from sales at retail dealers to crimes on city streets.
The Post investigation found that a small percentage of gun stores sells most of the weapons recovered by police in crimes - re-confirming the major finding of studies that came out before federal gun-tracing data were removed from public view by an act of Congress in 2003.
