“The justice department is leaving no stone unturned in our efforts to protect communities from violent crime and the gun violence that often drives it,” Garland told reporters. “As part of the department-wide anti violent crime strategy that we had launched last year, we are marshaling the resources of every one of our US attorney’s offices, law enforcement agencies, grant making entities and other components to work in partnership with state and local law enforcement to disrupt violent crime.”

Police officers confiscated those weapons in Texas, Baltimore, Maryland, and Canada. The offender was likewise charged with one count of handling guns without a license and 3 counts of making incorrect declarations throughout the purchase of a gun.

Garland stated the indictment likewise specifies that officers recuperated 16 of the guns in criminal events, consisting of murder, intensified attack, and drug trafficking.

In addition, the DOJ has actually charged numerous others, consisting of a person who supposedly offered 89 unlawful guns, in addition to almost 16 pounds of methamphetamine.

He said, “this case is just one example of the efforts the Justice Department is taking to protect our communities from violent crime and from the illegal gun trafficking that often drives it.”

During the press conference, Garland likewise applauded Congress in its effort to develop bipartisan legislation to resolve gun violence.
