Juxtaposition: gun selling

Artifact 1:

Thirty-four people were arrested, mostly on suspicion of weapons violations, and 23 guns were recovered in a law enforcement sweep targeting probationers, officials said Thursday.

The operation Wednesday was confined to the area represented by L.A. County Supervisor Michael Antonovich, including locations in the San Gabriel Valley.

More than 250 officers participated in the countywide operation, including the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, the Los Angeles County Probation Department, the Pasadena Police Department, the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services’ Multi-Agency Response Team (MART), and members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
