(Sep 10, 2008) The Border Governors Conference, an annual gathering of the governors of border states from the United States and Mexico, and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) recently reached an agreement aimed at stopping firearms trafficking across the U.S.-Mexico border. The governors have committed "to a Declaration of Cooperation (DOC) with ATF to expand the use and execution of eTrace, an internet-based firearm tracing system that has led to the successful seizure of thousands of firearms headed to Mexico."
