A new team announced today will pair Nashville police with federal agents to focus exclusively on tracking illegal guns, The Tennessean reports. The Crime Gun Unit, seven police officers working with two agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, will analyze shell casings collected at crime scenes across the city to trace specific guns that are used more than once, working backward to find the guns and the people who use them illegally.
