Are you going to tell me I sold it, when I'm telling you it was stolen. Or he borrowed it to go to the range for an hour?
well that's where the good old investigative mesaures come into play ... if the criminal can attest to your indication of it being stolen, then you're in the clear. if evidence is proven you sold the gun, illegally in this scenario, you're in as much sh!t as the criminal for being negligent in aiding in a crime.
find your loop holes all you want, but it's a added measure...if you say you're a responsible gun owner, you shouldnt worry about this. and there's never going to be a full-proof law, just as with seatbelts, you cant make everyone wear them, however doing nothing and allowing the oversight to continue is blatant ignorance. enact it, and hold more accountable - it will work, just as it did for every other safety measure
