Pre filing for the 2020 legislative season, Senator Lauren Book (Broward County) re-introduces the Universal Background Checks for the Gunshine State. As usual it is  a long out drawn process that guarantees people will avoid  and either risk breaking the law or wasting an hour with this crap. And as somebody commented on an earlier post: “The method is the punishment” or similar words

Why can we get a Republican to introduce our version of UBC?  WWW.FDLE4UBC.ORG, a website anybody can log in and for a modest fee (money for .Gov) you can get an instant determination & a reference number that a BG check was performed for selling a firearm . No need to go to the FFL, no need to go into the books and no need to be wasting time.

Dear Politicians, do you really want to improve safety? This is the way to do it: by encouraging people to become part of the solution voluntarily, not threatening the people that have enough guns to laugh at you. And if the amount of sales is as big as you think it is, then you are going to have created a nice income for the state. Politicians and the State rejecting money? Ha!

  1. A number of years ago I was trading a pistol for a motorcycle (I didn’t like the pistol and did like the bike). But the dude was a little sketchy.

    So I told him we had to do the transfer through an FFL. Took him up to the nearest FFL to do the background check.

    It was a freaking nightmare. First the FFL really didn’t want to do it. Then he really didn’t know how to do it. Finally he explained that he would do it. But that if the dude buying the firearm failed the 4473 then I would have to fill out and do the 4473 to get my firearm back.

    Way to complicated.

    My current dealer (yea, think addiction), tells me that the 4473 now has a place where the FFL can mark this as a “facilitating private sale”. has all the details.

    Having just read this, no wonder FFLs want no part of this. There are like a 1001 different reasons that the FFL will have to enter the firearm into his A&D books. And moving anything from the A&D requires another 4473.

    That was me, Miguel.

    And it’s “The Process Is the Punishment” it was originally coined to describe, I believe the NYC DAs office, the system of making sure that if you invoke your civil rights you will be punished harder than if you just rolled over and went with a plea deal.

  3. Make us responsible for our own background check?

    YES! YES! YES!

    Keep the FFL out of it. They will thank you. All they would need to do is review your 4473, and then verify your background check is authentic. Imagine the time savings. Imagine how happy they will be if they don’t have to hold the firearm for one, two, or three days, and then decide whether to cancel or complete a sale?
