    I don't think that should be a crime at all, but why would you do that? Just curious.

    I think all options except banning hand guns are sensible.

    Re: What is "common sense" gun control?

    I think an issue comes into play regarding what is "common sense". I think evveryone can agree by the results that "Banning guns from felons and the mentaly infirm" with over 80% of voters agreeing on it falls into that category.

    But what about the near 50% responses. Is that common sense? Or is that a dichotomy on views? I would lean towards the latter.

    Show me one way it can help me to leave it there.

    I can think of several ways it might inconvenience me. From the weapon being stolen, and wasting my time with an interview about a later crime, or investigating me for the same. Perhaps others feel the same as I and thus leaving it there would reduce resale value.

    If it is stolen and recovered you can get it back as it will clearly be the one reported stolen. If the numebr is filed off, then there is no way to know it was your gun. That's just one way it can help you personally.

    I don't think resale value would be an issue because anyone can file it off themselves. That appears to be grasping for an argument. As far as the otehr reasons, I would think it is in your best interests to assist the police with any investigations regarding violent crimes in your area, but I can understand the terpidation if one is worried about being convicted of a crime they didn't commit.

    Plus the sale of weaponry is not a right. So I think it should be illegal to sell weapons that have the numbers filed off.

    How would it be determined if someone is a felon or not a felon without a background check?

    I fully support any gun control law that means criminals will not have guns and that does not infringe on the rights of the law abiding.
    Let me know when you find one of those.
    Excuse me if this question has been asked since I'm at work and unable to read the whole thread...

    I'm curious how we separate the law abiding from the convicted felon without a background check when it comes to purchasing a weapon?

    Let me know when you figure that out.

    That gun is the insurance companies, as they already bought me a new one.

    That doesn't help ME. That helps some insurance guy, but not really, since tracking it all down will cost more than the weapon.

    Then everyone files em off, and the whole idea is a joke.

    I don't think most people would file them off. Just paranoid people.
