The site includes a gallery of suspects and a map of robberies.

All of the information can be searched by name, and location.

The Justice Department compiled a list of ideas to reduce gun violence but it was postponed until after last month’s elections, the Washington Post reports, citing anonymous sources familiar with the efforts.

In March 2011, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. asked officials to draw up a list of recommendations to reduce gun violence following the shooting of then-Rep Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., the Post wrote.

Holder’s office worked with ATF, local police gun-control advocates, firearm dealers and experts on the FBI’s Instant Criminal Background Check System, according to the Post.

The recommendations, which need legislative approval, however, were shelved until after the election, sources told the Post.

People are buying guns in record numbers.

The FBI recorded nearly 17 million background checks of gun purchases in 2012, the most since the bureau began compiling the date in 1998, the Huffington Post reports.

Since the background checks don’t include multiple gun purchases, the number of guns sold this year are likely a lot higher, the Huffington Post wrote.

Experts expect last week’s school shooting in Connecticut to cause another spike in gun buys particularly as some members of Congress press to ban assault weapons.

But experts aren’t sure what caused the increase in gun ownership this year, the Huffington Post reported.
