Ohio Violent Crime Consortium to Focus on 'Gun Crimes'

On Friday, Ohio officials announced they have set up a "Gun Crime Center" to aid law enforcement in understanding "weapons trafficking," ballistics, and to help trace guns used in violent crimes. Located in Richfield, near Cleveland, the program is known as the Northern Ohio Violent Crime Consortium and is being paid for with a $5.9 million federal grant. By its name, I hope they are looking into other violent criminal activities, and aren't tempted to focus solely on crimes involving the illegal use of self defense tools.
