    It is illegal for a felon to attempt to purchase a gun so the refrain about enforce the law is that the federal government is not enforcing the law in terms of going after those attempted purchases enough.  

    There is some merit to the idea of enforcing those laws more strictly, but most people trying to traffic are using straw purchasers in some form.  Thus tracking down straw purchasers is generally a better used of government's limited resources.
