and you ignore the fact that if someone buys more than one handgun from the same dealer WITHIN FIVE BUSINESS DAYS the ATF IS NOTIFIED OF THAT FACT.
I suggest that if this indeed is happening, then the ATF is not doing its job and if that is true more laws aren't going to help but it will certainly hassle dealers and owners more
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
the dealer? well, that means the ATF relies upon the honesty of the dealer. a digital record keeping system would solve that problem. such a system would not effect gun buyers one bit. if anything, it might make their transactions move faster, especially if their criminal record is on their drivers license and easily accesable with a card reader.
this process would be made EASIER & QUICKER...if your ability to own a firearm, was registered on your drivers license.
my solution, would make things easier & quicker for legal gun buyers.
but some folks are acting like it would make more of a hassle. I wonder why.
and if a dealer -during that inspection-is found to have not notified the ATF of a multiple sale he is going to be busted. and guess what-when the dealer calls in a purchase for the Instant BC, the checkers give the dealer a PROCEED and a code number. If the 4473 is missing that code or has a fraudulent one guess what-the Dealer is BUSTED. you see if I am a dealer I just cannot write on the 4473 that the purchaser passed the telephone initiated background check. I have to get a code from the BC agency which the ATF can check on.
and your suggestion has no merit. BC won't be any faster by the dealers sending stuff they are not permitted to send to the ATF, and which the ATF has no authority to collect
I'm glad to hear tha purchases of more than 5 guns at one time from the same dealer, requires a notice to the ATF. This is good to hear, thank you TD.
however, it still depends upon the honesty of gun dealers.
