IF he notifies the NICS he is selling the guns to Leroy he incriminates himself.

    SO TELL ME catawba how will the USSC rule when the AUSA indicts Tyrone for both being a felon in POSSESSION and for failing to perform the background check

    I know the answer

    DO YOU?
    That is not what the expanded background check law is for. The expanded background check is to prevent felons and the mentally deranged from shuffling into a gun show in 40 states and buying a cheap gun with cash, no questions asked.

    The far right will defend suicides before they agree to any reasonable gun safety measures.

    Well yeah, but I was thinking more along the lines of requiring new teachers to take psychology/counseling so they can better recognize early signs of trouble in their students. One thing they probably will dispute would requiring or at least making it easier for folks to have gun safes to prevent their potentially troubled children from having easy access to their guns.

    online advertising (which I believe already requires FFL transfer hence BGC)...of course Craigs list/newpaper classifieds transactions would be identical to that which I described...and of course you said was exempted.
    Nope! Google the NY sting of online advertisers for gun sales w/o background checks. What you described was single sale to a friend or family member.

    That is what you say to everyone when you can't possibly refute what was said!

    Both sensible measures!

    Well from my experience in school student counselors are only as effective as the teachers who must first recognize a problem before the student is sent to see said counselor.
