Not what I would expect.

When the topic of selling a firearm comes up and why a receipt is not necessary, I've read of a number of people on firearms forums who received a call from police doing a firearms trace. Their response of "sorry, I sold that gun at a gunshow and do not know who I sold it to" was always the end of discussion. The firearms trace dead ends at that point.

It's good to see that the incidents of which you've heard ended correctly. I guess I have come to expect a leave-no-stone-unturned mentality if there is any chance of finding evidence.

It might also depend on who was murdered.
