Paper gun sale records pile up with ATF prevented from upgrading tracing

The ATF traces guns used in crimes, however federal law is getting in the way. Gun sales have to be recorded but there’s no law requiring dealers to digitize them, causing stacks of documents to pile up. There’s currently no way to enter a serial number and search for the gun owner. Many say the decades old tracing system needs to be updated.
