Here’s What Happened the Last Time Jeff Sessions Got Aggressive on Gun Crime
By Dan Friedman

Sessions was hardly the only federal prosecutor making lots of gun cases in the early 1990s. But his office was more aggressive than most. From 1991 to 1993, his office prosecuted 90 percent of gun cases referred by law enforcement, according to data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. Between 1994 and 2004, the decade after Sessions had served as U.S. Attorney, his former office accepted 65 percent of such cases.
