    that most illegal guns started their life as happy legal guns before they got "laundered" into illegal guns by unscrupulous straw-purchasers and distributors (that are not FFLs and therefore can avoid any official regulation).

    It is time that many things be done to slow down the carnage: over 100k Americans either die with firearms or end up in the ER with gunshot wounds (and the cost of all the post-traumatic care for life) - if that is not something that is critical and requires immediate action, I don't know what is. (If a flu pandemic killed 3k to 4k in a year that would be considered outrageous and people would be demanding action, yet we take 10 times as many deaths and just shrug it off as the idols that the NRAvangelists worship cannot be upset.)

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
