I understand that this is probably going to be a heated debate, but I would like to know if this would be a workable idea or not. As gun owners, I would like to know your honest opinion on this or any flaws I haven't thought of. So lets begin... I, like many of you here, am tired of hearing about the "Gun Show Loophole". However, I would also never want a convicted felon to obtain a firearm. If many of you haven't already realized, I used to be LEO and currently work in corrections. I've dealt with many of these felons from day to day, heard their phone calls, read their mail and have (unfortunately) spent more time with them than I have my family. I would never want felons to have access to firearms...nevertheless they brag about how easily it is to obtain one from simply opening up a Thrifty Nickel and buying one from a private individual. Am I the only one that is uncomfortable by this? I doubt it... View attachment 46458 Nevertheless, I'm for private individuals selling their property to other private individuals...and I'm also against making people register their guns or having to report to the government who is buying/selling something. View attachment 46459 So, I propose a compromise. How about a 1-800 number or internet site to see if someone is eligible to purchase a firearm? Just a simple "Yes" or "No" from the site or operator and "voila!". Obviously this is a system already set up and available- but restricted to FFL dealers. But I just can't see why someone can't call up a 1-800 or click on an FBI site, give/put in the info of the person, get a "Yes" then hang up and complete your transaction. The feds don't have to know who is selling or what is being bought...just clearing someone to be able to what purchase a firearm so you can sell it without giving a felon or a known mental case a gun. View attachment 46457 Lets hear it...the feds would rather have all firearm transactions go through a paper trail and have each person registered to each gun purchased. Like many of you here, I'm against this. So, what are your thoughts on the above?
