This, combined with other forms of strengthening the ability to track gun purchases can expose people that have no problem selling a gun that will later be used in a crime. Guns used in crimes don't just come from Mexico. Plenty (likely most) of them come from local outlets. This doesn't mean just because someone sells a gun used in a crime should be in trouble, but the patterns that will be found won't lie. It's about taking a comprehensive approach to stop straw purchases and apprehend people that execute and/or facilitate them.
