What happens after a gun is used in a crime? The FOX31 Problem Solvers discovered that sometimes it can be complicated to track.
One handgun used by a teenager to shoot a police officer in Cherry Hills Village, Colorado, in 2018 was traded with or sold to several other teens before a different man later used the weapon to shoot at a semi-truck driver in Aurora.
Evidence obtained by the Problem Solvers after both shooting cases were closed shows how a web of young people had access to the same gun, and that they used various methods, including Facebook, to get rid of it before it was linked to the crimes.

How a gun used to shoot an officer went from teen to teen
[If only they had done the background checks like they were supposed to it wouldn’t have been so difficult track.
Or if they had obeyed the law and note purchased the gun was teenagers.
Or if they had obeyed the law against committing violent crimes.
It just shows us we need more common-sense laws to fix the problem.</sarcasm>
Gun control is not about public safety. It is about public control.
