Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced the launch of the Track and Trace program today in a press conference. Track and Trace is a gun tracing program that traces guns recovered by authorities in criminal investigations. Authorities trace these recovered guns back to the buyer. PA state and local representatives, law enforcement, and the ATF are all working together on this initiative to help track these firearms. Attorney General Shapiro, along with County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper, and others in attendance stated that a small number of guns in Pa are used in a large number of crimes. This is one reason for the launch of this program. Track and Trace has a three tiered approach, to work with law enforcement, retailers, and gun owners to protect the rights of individuals second amendment, while keeping the public safe. “I’m committed to protecting the right of a parent who wants to legally own a gun to protect their home, but I’m also committed to protecting the right of a parent who wants to walk their child to school and not be in fear of getting shot on the street on their way,” said Attorney General Josh Shapiro.
