You're making sense!If I'm right (and no guarantee of that), there are already plenty of laws already. IMHO, the key thing is once they're in place/on the books, they have to be ENFORCED. For instance, when someone fails a background check, is anything done? I would imagine that, for whatever reason, if you're prohibited from purchasing/owning a firearm, you probably know anyway. If you commit a crime with a firearm, or are found in possession, or try to purchase one anyway, and you're already prohibited, shouldn't you prosecuted for that as well as or including the original charge. Am I making any sense, or just rambling?
Before the GCA of 1968 people could buy firearms right out of the Sears catalog and have them delivered to your door no questions asked.I read this and understand what you're saying but a point - how long have guns been made? Guns don't have a experiation date. Guns, generally, don't go bad. Is there a law that prohibits ammo purchase? Guns haven't always been registered when purchased. Wheel guns, 1911 military weapons, rifles, shotguns. Been around for a long time. There are weapons that have never seen a data base. There hasn't always been backgound checks. Am I right on this?
I guess my point is that if you really wanted a gun, it would be easy enough to get without a background check.
