Fascinating article on the US's national gun tracing centre, and how they're not allowed to computerise the records, meaning that they're all on microfilm.

Unusually for me, I can see a bit of the NRA's point here, and they're an organisation I normally have no time for all. If you can run the SQL query "SELECT OWNER FROM GUNS WHERE TYPE='44 MAGNUM' AND SERIAL='123456'" then you can also run the query "SELECT OWNER FROM GUNS WHERE TYPE='44 MAGNUM'", and there is no way to prevent that, and that's not good if you like guns. I personally think that gun control is a good idea, but that's a legislative issue and it needs to be solved at that level. Until it is so solved, no gun database. But I hugely admire Charlie and his team for the way they've made the process they're allowed as efficient as possible in very, very trying circumstances. They're doing good work.
