I think Coburn's position is to destroy them within 3 days.
Like that's really going to happen...
It's kinda like that old joke about how do you know so-and-so is lying? If his mouth is open! Similarly, the only way to KNOW government won't violate your civil rights by improper use of information is if it's physically impossible because they never see it. In fact, knowing the players as we do, that's the only way to even BELIEVE they're not doing so, let alone "know" it. So since they CLAIM they're not doing it to build a database, and since they're already REQUIRED to destroy the trace information anyway, then they can't possibly have any objection to a background check in which they NEVER SEE the information. Instead let them distribute the list of prohibited individuals in encrypted form to FFL's for installation on their own computers with no internet connection, and let the FFL's perform the checks. It'd be an honor system to trust the FFL's that they ran the checks, but it already is. Such a system provides them everything they SAY they want with nothing free people can't accept and no knowledge accruing to the government for a function where they don't need that information to perform it. If anybody should be on a "need to know" basis, it's the goobermint.
Some planets have longer days than others.
Ohhhh yes, that gives me great assurance that a socialist, RAT bastard gubmint, led by the Great Satan himself, 0dumb0shit, will honor their promise to destroy gun records in 3 days. Here's a novel idea to the gubmint.... YOU DON'T GET ANYTHING! How 'bout that?
