Indiana-Illinois traffic sparks gun show scrutiny

GARY, Ind. — A sheriff says authorities will scrutinize the sponsors of gun shows more closely under a joint Indiana-Illinois-federal effort to impede the flow of guns from Indiana to Illinois.

Sheriff John Buncich of Lake County, Ind., says authorities will more closely review the sponsors of guns shows like those frequently held at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Crown Point to ensure they follow legal guidelines.

The Post-Tribune reported 80 representatives from 12 local, state and federal agencies in the two states huddled at the Genesis Convention Center in Gary Thursday to strategize ways to stop illegal guns from crossing the state line.

A University of Chicago Crime Lab says nearly 20 percent of the guns recovered by Chicago police from 2008 to 2012 were purchased in Indiana.
