The report is part of an ongoing efforts from the Biden administration to address the gun violence epidemic in America.
    We need to know who is using guns in crimes so we can focus our enforcement efforts on those individuals, And this data does just that. It helps us tailor our approach at the most significant drivers of gun violence and take those shooters off the streets,” Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said Tuesday, speaking to federal and local law enforcement officials from around the country to mark the beginning of a two-day national summit focused on reducing violence.
      根据报告, 11,063,910 firearms were manufactured in the US in 2020 相比 3,932,734 在 2000.
        之间 2016 和 2021, 多于 45,000 firearms suspected of being privately made, including firearms commonly known as “幽灵枪,” were recovered by law enforcement from potential crime scenes and reported to the ATF. 几乎 20,000 of those firearms were recovered and traced in 2021 单独.
        The administration highlighted the overall ghost guns numbers last month while announcing new regulations on them. 三月 2021, the FBI reported almost 4.7 million background checks, triggered before the sale of a firearm, the highest number since the bureau began recording.
          一个 CNN analysis showed that homicides broke record highs last year, fueled by gun violence, while data previously provided to CNN showed firearm seizures and recoveries by law enforcement in several cities reached near-decade high levels.
          Gary Restaino, the acting director of the ATF, said in the introduction of the report that itwill help federal, 州, and local law enforcement, 检察官, 政策制定者, and other stakeholders obtain a better understanding of commerce in firearms and how to best address illegal firearms trafficking.
          The report drew attention to staffing and funding issues that have long plagued the agency, stating thatover the past three decades, ATF has not been funded and staffed commensurate with staffing increases received by other DOJ law enforcement agencies.
            根据报告, 在 2019, the ATF had 655 field industry operations investigators responsible for overseeing more than 88,000 active federal firearms license-holders. The report’s authors noted that the number of total ATF employees has increased by 41% 以来 1973, compared to the 254% increase seen by the Drug Enforcement Agency and a 75% increase by the FBI over the same time period.
