ATF Sees Major Upswing in Recovered, Traced Machine Guns in Pennsylvania

The ATF recovered and traced more machine guns in Pennsylvania than in the past four years combined, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The ATF issued the alarming report, which states that the ATF reported 132 machine gun traces in the past year in Pennsylvania. By contrast, the agency traced 110 machine guns between 2009 and 2012.

The ATF defines a machine gun as “any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger.”

In Pennsylvania, adults can obtain permits to own machine guns. The state has 17,714 such permits.
