WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is moving ahead on plans to require background checks for guns purchased from dealers even if they’re bought online or at gun shows.
Federal Firearms Licensees do perform BG Checks at gun shows, it is already the law. As for internet sales, they send guns only to other FFLs so they can perform the BG checks on that end.
So, unless the President is mandating double BG Checks (which would be not only stupid but reversible by even Judge Brown on TV) I have the feeling that the “smartest people in government” have no frigging idea what are the gun laws in this country and by tomorrow night they will be the laughing-stock of the country.
PS: Now, if they want a BG Check at point of sale and then ship the guns directly to the home of the buyer, I am all for that. Yes, not happening, there is the form 4473 to be filled and signed.
