View Diary: America has never had a Background Check System for Gun Purchases (184 comments)

  •  Unfortunately, it's tough to make private citizens (6+ / 0-)

    comply with a background check requirement, especially when multiple guns are bought in states with lax gun laws and then transported to areas with tougher restrictions.

    The only way I see to do it is to get tougher on registered gun owners when a firearm registered to them is no longer in their possession. Make both the buyer and seller of the gun appear together at a sanctioned hardware, gun or sporting goods store.

    Or, perhaps force both participants in the transaction to appear together at their local city hall or magistrate's office.

    The NRA would not be happy. LOL

    Thanks for the diary.
