Thoughts on back ground checks -when you sell

Postby decoycarver » Wed Jun 05, 2013 10:55 pm

Being a buyer, user and trader/seller myself--what are your thoughts of You as a seller in Private -conducting back ground checks of your potential buyer of your firearm.Should this sale remain Private, Should you be concerned Who this buyer is ?-cask & carry --are you going to pay your Tax ? do you keep a receipt now with the proper information on who you sold/traded with..because it may be traced back -God forbid a terrible tragedy takes place..Should things be left alone ??--and let your common sense be your guide?-( I.e.) People are by Law are to wear Helmets for Bicycles --more rules and laws..and all that changed because Kids/people were jumping obstacles that were not to be jumped.and they cracked open their empty coconut !
now back to firearms its responsibility.of the owner-yes there are gun owners who shoot themselves -cleaning an empty firearms STILL--Accidents happen -what next -the government coming into you house and registering your butcher and steak knives ??--What about your louie-ville slugger behind the back seat, or behind the kitchen door--that's been there since your last high School game when your 130lbs. with cat like reflexes ??--that xxxl hunting coat looked kinda tight last sea=duck trip ??--and why does the TDB list to the port side??--with just you on the port side and all your gear/decoys on the starboard??--Im off track just thinking about my own fat a----.Mirrors don't lie !!--So Back ground checks to be conducted by everyone who sells/trades a firearm --your opinions ?? :huh:

background checks could be a simple, quick, and low cost way to decrease the odds of someone obtaining a gun that legally should not.

a major concern for many people, including myself is: what i done with that information (will this create a defacto gun registry)AND what constitutes an infraction of that law in transferring firearms (If I lend / gift a gun to friend or family for example)

I don't think it matters how or how many background checks are done. If a bad guy wants a gun he or she will find a way to get one. Maybe steal it from a legal owner. Just my .02$ ,,,that is all

Until existing laws are enforced and you can show me how to do it without increasing the Fed, state or local budgets I call it nothing but a feel good tax because it can't be enforced at without registration, and even then those that are committing crimes will just be committing one more.
