    Take a look at the 4473 form and read the law.  It is a felony to make false statements on this form.  It is a felony to purchase or posses a gun if you are convicted of a felony, subject to a restraining order, involuntarily hospitalized for psychiatric treatment or convicted of any domestic violence crimes.  

    Someone could purchase a gun in a private party sale so long as the seller had no suspicion that the buyer was a prohibited person.  

    Under capitalism man exploits man, under communism the roles are reversed.

      ...it still doesn't answer why people are not being prosecuted.  Is it considered too small fry to chase?  Is the requirement to destroy the background check paperwork making it impossible?
