    Try crime mapping sources, there are several, so you can check different ones if the area you're looking into is not covered by the first one. You can just enter the address or city name and look up incidents by block and street

  • Q: Can a background check keep you from buying high capacity magazines?

    Mar 19, 2013
    Reply:

    Restrictions on high capacity magazines and background checks do not have much to do with each other. If a ban is in place, regardless of whether an individual passes the check or not, they will not be able to obtain them as per law.

    These laws are federal, states such as California have these rules already in place, such as the ban on high capacity magazines.
