Description

Cox Newspapers exposes the link between assault weapons and crime; with the raw data from 43,000 FBI weapon traces, the reporters created a data base showing an assault weapon is 20 times more likely to be used in a crime than a conventional weapon; also found the U.S. Army sold many of the assault weapons in circulation; the six-part series and 15 follow-ups drew attacks from the NRA and praise from law enforcement officials and legislators, May 21 - Nov. 19, 1989.
