    Why are you for I-594?. I-594 applies to ALL gun transfers including short-term loans. One situation where this could be disastrous is where a homeowner shoots an intruder who is a gang member. The police are required to confiscate ALL weapons in the house during the investigation. That leaves the homeowner completely defenseless. Under I-594 no friend or relative would be able to immediately loan the homeowner a gun to defend himself against retaliation by the gang. Furthermore, I-594 extends the waiting period for a replacement purchase to 10 days and requires a background check before the homeowners guns could be returned by the police. It would be a real tragedy if I-594 leads to a family being massacred by a gang.
