Rift Between ATF And U.S. Attorney Leads To Uncollected Guns

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is supposed to retrieve guns from people who fail background checks during the purchasing process.

We'll talk with Reno Gazette-Journal investigative reporter Martha Bellisle about what happened and where those firearms ended up.
