So in what way does the bill reduce the number of guns in the hands of criminals?
However, some of the amendments included exemptions for
transfer to a member of immediate family,
transfer to someone whose life might be in danger and having the firearm would provide protection,
transfer by legal action or court (divorce settlement, inheritance, etc.)
transfer at a gun range or organized conservation organization.
transfer while hunting, trapping or fishing
These were some of the exemptions that I saw being considered a week ago. I was wondering how many made the final bill as the devil is always in the details.
Look closely at the exemptions from pages 5 to 7. Any bill without those exemptions is not well thought out. Any bill with those exemptions is hardly “UNIVERSAL.”
As a gun collector and long time member of a state gun collectors association, I feel that such background checks would harm gun shows and the ability to easily make purchase from other collectors to improve my collection.
