ATF May Help Combat Denver Street Violence if it Becomes More Serious
Disturbing trends of violence in Denver concern the feds, but it may not be enough to trigger additional resources from ATF, the Denver Post reports.
B. Todd Jones, acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, who was visiting Denver, said he’s disturbed by increasing violence from gangs and young people.
“The troubling thing about Denver — and it is a phenomenon across the country — is the age of people who are involved in firearm violence for conflict resolution,” Jones said. But Jones warned that resources are scarce and will likely be focused on more violent cities, such as New Orleans and Chicago.
