WASHINGTON, D.C. Law enforcement authorities traced more than 10,000 guns recovered in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia last year and nearly half came from Virginia, according to federal data released Monday.

Virginia also was among the top sources of guns recovered by authorities in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and South Carolina, the data show. In New York, more recovered guns came from Virginia than from any other outside state - roughly one of 11 traced.
