  •  Its not background checks... (4+ / 0-)

    I favor requiring safety classes for all prospective gun owners and mandating an instant background check.  I can understand a waiting period on the first gun purchase but not on the 2nd as someone would not buy a 2nd gun to commit a crime when they already own one?

      have a gun if it's a rifle. All they did was put me in a paper logbook. If they enter that later into some kind of national database, I am unaware.

        Its just a suggestion.  In most states the fact that you purchased a gun goes into a Bound book which is subject to regulatory review.  This is not the case in Maryland with regulated weapons (pistols, AR15 and similar firearms, etc).  There may be a database, but I don't remember.
