ATF Firearms Trace Data

Very interesting. Just quick look at some states and you find that most guns are traced from within the state and then for the most part, from adjacent states. I've primarily been looking at the New England region states and nearby states.

Make you wonder how Mumbles Menino can make statements about NH screwing up his city when in fact more guns are traced from his own state than from NH. The only reason that there are more from NH has a lot to do with the proximity of the population centers.

Unfortunately, the data is really thin. They give you the pretty graphs, but don't let you do any analysis on your own.
