I am a gun owner, as is my husband, & we are about to become NRA members, but I fully support this. I feel that the 2nd amendment is still protected. As much of a hassle that reporting all sales or trades would be, we would know who had what so as an example; if any of the shooters from the last few years had gotten one from an unsuspecting friend or a gun show, & the person wanting to obtain the gun had reported mental issues or that the police had been called to his house 3, 4, or more times, that might raise a red flag. One that should start getting noticed & paid attention too! What we could have is a special section on our Drivers License—or a special license (besides CC)—that shows we have already passed all background checks & can legally buy a gun, good for a few years, before renewal, to hopefully catch any mentally unstable behavior or increasing anger or erratic behavior.
