    Have you noticed lately the ATF reports almost immediately on gun purchases when a perp goes on a shooting spree?

    That type search is supposedly not possible under the current law, but the ATF does, indeed, have all new sales registered and searchable in their database, it just ages after a while. They want it updated with every change of ownership, gotta close that "gunshow loophole".

    I've been in this store. It's about 12-15 minutes from my house, but I've been in there maybe three times since they've opened? Prices are high in general and as noted already, they tend to keep few employees. Hard to justify going in there when Academy is in Newnan and Opelika, and there are some good local options in town. Pawn Express will do transfers and sometimes has some steals, and FMJ tends to have a solid selection and decent prices, and if you find it cheaper online and have it transferred, they won't moan as other stores I've been in over the years have (even recall one store that's closed now refusing to do a transfer for me because the price I paid was less than his store's price). There's also another small gun store near Traylor's Pawn Shop that I've never been in, and Traylor's too. Don't think I'm missing one, but Dunham's is certainly low on the list of places to get a gun in the area. There used to be a hunting place off of Exit 13 but heard it closed.

    I don't think it's as much of that as just having unlimited resources during these investigations to do the digging necessary to find the connection. Whereas a normal search might take the ATF days (or weeks), a high priority mass shooting is going to get everyone's attention from the first second. From manufacturer to distributor to first gun store, then the origin 4473. Either they bought it from that dealer or generally buy/acquire it from a friend/family member. Again, since it's high priority, pieces are put together quickly and mass shooters aren't really thinking about how to cover up their tracks. Plus these guns in these events tend to be new or recently purchased, so it's easy to find. Consider that they knew the exact store James Earl Ray bought his Remington from that he used to assassinate MLK. That happened before the GCA 1968 went into law and several years before the ATF existed, but it was a national event that received resources needed to investigate it, nor did James Earl Ray really go through measures to cover up the purchase because he was already an escaped convict on the run.
