Tracing guns

According to the 2007 UCR for Illinois, 6690 firearms were were recovered and traced in Chicago that year.

According to the city, 6700 firearms were "bought back" last year (2007).

So Chicago is not tracing all recovered firearms by a long-shot unless the majority of "guns" turned in were toys.

How accurate are trace data statistics again?

What more can Daley et al be doing to combat gun crime?
