I was watching PCN tonight and saw the mind-numbing debates on the amendment that requires handgun owners to report lost/stolen firearms within 72 hrs. Now during the debate/interrogation, one of the republicans brought up a few good points. These points have made me go from supporting the ammendment to making me think it's a useless weapon to combat straw purchase(r)s. 1) If the gun is illegally passed on/sold from a straw seller to a buyer, the handgun is neither lost nor stolen...so this amendment technically doesn't even apply to penalize either party pertaining to the illegal transaction. In other words, since the gun hasn't been lost or stolen, this amendment doesn't apply. 2) The amendment focuses on the term "knowingly". My question is, how do you PROVE someone knew something?...other than to record them specifically agreeeing to such a thing? What do you think on these points? How effective is this amendment at targeting straw sales? Thanks! -Emt1581 Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
