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
So a responsible gun owner wouldn't sell their guns, because there's no telling what someone else may do with it?
Not trying to be a smartass, I'm just not following your line of thought here.
So you're going to make it illegal
for me to sell the guns I already have? Or are you going to make me responsible for the person I sold the gun to, which in effect makes selling a gun nearly illegal? What about if he sells the gun, am I responsible for that person too?
