Sniper Guns

NPR's Larry Abramson reports police are trying to determine how accused sniper John Allen Muhammed was able to obtain a weapon. The $800 firearm that Muhammed allegedly used in the shootings was registered at a gun store in Tacoma, Washington, but the store has no record of it being sold or what happened to it.
