Gun Shows and Crime

Undercover investigations have shown that guns purchased in Ohio have been used in New York city crimes. And it's possible that some of those weapons came from gun shows in Ohio and other states. Mayor Michael Bloomberg's office funded a recent investigation that shows it's easy to make a purchase at an Ohio gun show, even if you admit you couldn't pass a background check. In fact, many gun show sellers aren't required to perform background checks. Does this make gun shows an open market for criminals? We'll discuss gun shows and background checks Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. on The Sound of Ideas.

Guests

John Feinblatt, Criminal Justice Coordinator for New York City
