NEW YORK — The number of guns recovered by law enforcement in the city last year increased significantly over the previous three years, statistics released yesterday by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives show.
While the bureau is concerned about the higher number of guns recovered in the city, the spike does not necessarily signify that more guns are coming into New York, a spokesman for the bureau, Special Agent Joseph Green, said.
