If you are a gun owner and believe that the best way to stop gun violence is to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, then you should oppose this bill.
Here is how it works. A straw man (bad guy #1) goes into a gun dealer and buys 3 or 4 guns a week and then takes them out to the street and resells them to Mr. Criminal who can't buy a gun legally. Mr. Gun dealer makes a tidy profit from the sales, so says nothing. Mr. Gun maker makes a tidy profit from the sales, so does nothing.
Why should a gun dealer who is selling guns to straw men and the dealer knows these guns are just being resold to criminals be free from penalty. If this law is passed, it will only make it more likely that guns will end up in the hands of the wrong people because there is no incentive for the gun dealer to ask questions about why someone may need to purchase 50 guns per year. This law would also protect a gun dealer who sells multiple .50 calibur rifles to terrorists who use it against us. Mr. Gun dealer gets to sit back and laugh as he watches his new big screen TV.
If a liquor store is selling vodka to someone they know is turning right around and selling it too kids, is that ok? What if that kid drinks himself to death or kills a family of 4 in a drunk driving accident? Its the kids fault and no one elses, right?
