Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund v. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives

Everytown for Gun Safety filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Everytown v. ATF) seeking public records on crime guns from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). The complaint was filed under the Freedom of Information Act and seeks public records containing aggregate data on guns recovered from crime scenes nationwide that ATF has successfully traced to their origins. This type of data – which the ATF has previously released – provides unique insights into how criminals acquire firearms and how traffickers move guns across state-lines and is essential for the study of gun violence.
