I've watched people at gun shows make purchases without having an ID. I had a coworker who spent half his free time flipping guns on arms list and through cleverly worded craigslist ads. He certainly wasn't running background checks. The basic problem is the tremendous surplus of guns already in circulation. That's why I say you can't make an immediate impact. You just have to pass the common sense laws and settle in for the long haul.
