This series follows the illegal purchase of 250 hand guns, their transport across state lines, and their sale on the streets of Buffalo to "doped-up teenagers, petty thieves and hard-core drug dealers." One gun runner accomplished this feat. The series also tellswhere and how the weapons are manufactured, how they are sold and some of the double-standards of the industry. The writers also tell the stories of some of the victims of shootings using the 250 handguns.
