I don't read this particular fish wrap, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20130721/OPINION01/707219935/-1/opinion One claim did get my attention though: "I-594 closes that criminal-check loophole and makes it tougher for bad guys. And when purchasers comply, the sale will be exempt from sales tax. The good guys (not to mention the public more broadly) benefit." You never pay sales tax on used goods anyway, so how is that possibly relevant?
