Why Thieves Target Gun Stores | The New Yorker
"When California is removed from the analysis, the annual number of burglaries in states with security requirements drops by as much as eighty-eight per cent. New Jersey has been especially successful at warding off burglaries. Rules adopted in 1971 require gun shops in the state to obtain approval for their security plans from the superintendent of the state police before opening for business, and to keep weapons locked up. (In 2014, the Republican Chris Christie, who was then the state’s governor, proposed even stiffer requirements, but they were not adopted in full.) Between 2012 and 2017, burglars in New Jersey stole only three guns; burglars in North Carolina, meanwhile, stole more than fourteen hundred."

"It’s difficult to discern the full scale of gun trafficking in the U.S., owing in part to the Tiahrt Amendments, a series of provisions that Congress began passing in 2003. The amendments bar the A.T.F. from publicly disclosing detailed information about the provenance of individual guns used in crimes. The N.R.A. pushed for the provisions and has fought efforts to repeal them, arguing that public access to the data would unfairly stigmatize businesses and violate the privacy of gun owners. Before the passage of the Tiahrt Amendments, reporters and researchers could use the A.T.F.’s data to determine whether a stolen gun had been recovered at a crime scene. Today, tracking such weapons is painstaking, and requires cross-referencing the serial numbers listed on reports of stolen guns with those on police reports for crimes. The Trace and The New Yorker, working around the Tiahrt Amendments, relied on thousands of public records and more than fifty interviews to track Scott’s guns through a network of black-market profiteers."
