That scares me. I don't want to sound like an elitist asshole, but there are a lot of people out there that shouldn't be trusted with a rubberband gun. He knew I was a good guy, but there are a lot of private sells out there in which the seller knows nothing about the buyer.
What can we do about that? Probably nothing.
Treat it just like a car, you want to use it you have to have a license for each gun which requires a background check (car inspection).
Get caught with a non-registered gun go to jail mandatory 5 years.
