I realize this may be a "touchy subject," but there is a tremendous problem with participants in FTF transactions. What I emphasize here is residency verification through quick glances of state IDs. Don't get me wrong, I understand and feel for both sides of the argument: (1) privacy rights, ID checks are intrusions, etc.; (2) pure legality. I am relatively young (30). I wasn't around prior to the crazy gun law legislation, but I'm imaginative and understand how unreal the present situation is (background checks, restriction on FTF to resident state, etc.). On the flip-side, to those who "poo-poo" requests for quick ID checks: I don't want to "frak" up and find myself in prison. For the most part, participants in a FTF transfer do not know each other personally. While both parties seek "trust" in the transaction, those who "poo-poo" residency concerns (while I feel for you) need to realize that the seller/buyer is not asking for a background check or a "bill of sale." To appease residency concerns in a FTF transaction isn't the end of the world; it ensures each party is safe. Furthermore, to work together and to ensure the residency of both parties means we give "big brother" little to no "ammunition" (at least with this issue) with which to fight gun ownership. This isn't meant to be a political speech. Rather, I've had great difficulty in selling firearms in a timely fashion, because for every FTF buyer who legally qualifies I have to deal with 1 out-of-state buyer looking to trick me/convince me to a FTF, or 1 privacy advocate who belittles my request for ID--my request for self-preservation. Am I too harsh? Thoughts/comments?
