  •  Is it the premise of the right to keep and bear (0+ / 0-)

And the fact of looking at transfers is something that has other side effects, such as a registration demonstrates that X owned a weapon, and proof of theft of it when it shows up somewhere else it shouldn't be is easier. Both as to gun thieves and as to traffickers.
