Quotes

"The West Coast Crips gang members think nothing of killing their rivals around San Diego" Duffy said. "They also think nothing of executing their own.''
...for our products in the last five years,'' the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the gun industry's trade association, said on its website. "Not surprisingly, growth has placed added demand on the (ATF's) Office of Enforcement Programs and Services."
"Today we're having the discussions to really talk about how do we share information and come up with some processes that might work so we can be more effective" said Walsh
"People use a variety of things, like chemicals and commercially available products to make bombs," said Dabkowski. "I think the concern is they can be random crimes, very indiscriminate crimes and just the fact that since you don't know what people are using, there are a lot of questions out there."
