can the police/law enforcement people type in a serial # of a reported stolen gun and find out the status of it?-
do they have the capability to do so?-

If you are talking about if it is listed as stolen or recovedred, then they should be able to do that. If the gun is sold person to person  and no real paper trail then they can't unless the buyer submits the s.n. to them. A lot of states require certen type of guns to be redgestered and there is a paper trail for them it makes it easy for police to tell who has what
