Criminologist featured on CBS 11 report

KTVT CBS 11 used an undercover team to expose potential illegal gun sales at some local pawn shops. After viewing the undercover video, Alex del Carmen, chairman and professor of the UT Arlington Criminology and Criminal Justice Department, said if such sales actually were to transpire they would violate federal law. “I think what your videos showcase is the fact that we have a problem, that this is a problem going on in the United States. … if a federal agency would have the capacity to be able to detect this and to put undercover agents to do this, they would have probably closed the place down and indicted the people working there.”
