Executive orders leave Valley gun dealers, officials skeptical

Liberals want to keep Bubba from selling his shotgun to Billy Ray who was just released from prison....

And your point is?

Is there ANY federal requirement for a private seller (non-FFL seller) to file or store any records?

Is there ANY federal requirement for the private seller (non-FFL) to INQUIRE about the purchaser's lawful ability to purchase or possess a firearm?

I asked the above questions 3 days ago, as no one has been able to answer, I assume that there are no federal requirements as it pertains to "private" sales.

I realize however that the Federal law prohibits the sale of a firearm to a person that is prohibited to possess. So the easy work around for the seller is just to not ask a purchaser if they are prohibited.

And that's the real point of universal background checks - that the seller is required to determine if the purchaser is prohibited.

Now, can someone explain what that's a "bad" thing?

billdog1, I have no knowledge of exactly what information is transmitted to NICS via electronic entry or telephone entry. What I do know is that the FFL dealer is required to complete, sign, and store a 4473. Not only does the purchaser (transferee) sign but also the seller (transferor) must provide his signature and other information information.

@dmacker,
You said; " Unlicensed dealers at gun shows can run NICS checks through the licensees at the gun show."

I think that you are saying that the licensed gun dealers are processing the paperwork for the unlicensed gun dealers.

Is this just a courtesy that the licensed dealer is providing to their competitors (the unlicensed dealer) or do they charge a fee for submitting the background check request?

Does the licensed dealer (when submitting that request) list themselves or someone else as the transferor (the seller)?

@DSquared and @dmacker:

I am specifically asking dmacker about his assertion that "as do most INDIVIDUALS selling at the shows".

So how does the INDIVIDUAL ( a person that does not have a Federal license to sell firearms) access the NICS database?

@dmacker:
You said:"All licended dealers at gun shows run background checks as do most individuals selling at the shows".

Focused on the latter part of your statement I'd like to understand what goes on with non-licensed gun show sellers - how do they have access to NICS to do a background check?

Could you provide some detailed explanation?

Dem prez candidate Hillary Clinton talks gun control after Ore. shooting

People keep talking about "solutions" to gun violence.

There is only one solution - and that is a fantasy - elimination of all guns.

So forget the idea of a solution.

Rather there are steps that can be taken to reduce the incidence of gun violence.

Even those steps may have unintended consequences.

For example, I hope that we can agree that mentally ill persons should not have easy access to firearms - the downside of that step is that mentally ill persons are prevented from protecting themselves with a firearm. So weight the pros and cons of that step. Then decide what is in the common good.

@ Need2no, community where the mayor made it mandatory for every household to have a gun.... are you referring to Nelson GA, Kennesaw GA, Nucla Co, or some other place?

So here's an update, Kennesaw: Rambo-styled individual bursts into the Fed-Ex facility there killing six. (18 months ago)

Nelson Ga: town ordinance adopted that affirms right of citizens NOT to have firearms.

Nucla Co: town of 600 has not had any gun violence before or after making it mandatory that every household have a gun.

What is also interesting is that in none of the towns is there any enforcement of the "mandatory" gun ownership.

So what town are you talking about?

You are conflating two very different ideas; and I am certainly not apologizing for murderers.

You think that the threat of a life sentence (or lethal injection, or quartering) is going to act as a deterrent.

What I am saying is deterrence does not work with people in a fit of passion, rage, etc. BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT THINKING!

I am also saying that persons who are suicidal, DO NOT CARE about your life sentence or lethal injection.

I am also saying that persons who desire to be martyrs, DO NOT CARE about your life sentence or lethal injection.

Fortunately we have experienced very few of the "I want to be a martyr" - with the possible exception of Dylann Roof.

I suspect that the majority of today's murders fall into the "passion" category, for them the deterrent factor that you espouse is meaningless - because they no longer are thinking rationally.
