Well, maybe this is an opportunity to walk back some of the bad ideas that we’ve had shoved down our throats since 1968.
For instance, if all we’re concerned about is “background checks”, why does a 4473 have to go along with every firearm? Change the law — run a potential buyer through NICs, sure, no problem. But why keep a record of the private sale firearm that two private citizens want to sell?
I could go along with universal checks if the make, model, and serial number of the transferred firearm were not recorded on the form. But they are, so I am opposed.
I would add a little comment. Since this background check is such a “swell” idea...let’s tie voter registration into this and require a background check each four years on registered voters.
Since it doesn’t infringe upon the American citizen...as we are told...then it won’t hurt on voting checks either.
