LEAP Forward Position: Support
Laws requiring the reporting of lost or stolen firearms reduce illegal gun trafficking, making it easier for law enforcement to ensure that deadly weapons do not make their way into dangerous people’s hands. From preventing straw purchases to disarming prohibited persons, reporting laws protect citizens by making sure illegal firearm transfers don’t fall through the cracks.
