We dont register guns. No one knows I even have said gun. No one. And no one will know I sold it to BRC. And no one will know he bought it
This idea we can do background checks on every gun buyer in every transaction is insane. Do we do a backgrond check on car buyers? If I sell a car to BRC do I check to see if he has a drivers lic? Does he drink? Have tickets? Insurance? No. I sign the title and he takes it to DMV. Do they check? No. They say that will be 45 dollars, your title will be mailed in 2 weeks
Background checks by FFL dealers Im cool. And at gunshows sure as much as you can. But you cant begin to enforce this sort of thing if BRC and I cut the deal in the parking lot. And no one is going to do this stuff if grandpa gives lil Jimmy an old 22 for his birthday. Will we toss lil Jimmy in the clink? Or grandpa?
Come on. Common sence. Get some.
Grandpa may have, *gasp*, fill out some paperwork.
No, you can't stop every parking lot deal, but if the buyer is caught with said gun in an illegal manner, the person that sold it to him w/o following procedure is in hot water.
Common sense. Get some.
