View Diary: America has never had a Background Check System for Gun Purchases (184 comments)

    we have registration of all handguns, as well as a system that requires a background check for private transfer of handguns.  Compliance is easy, and only involves the minor inconvenience of a couple of visits to the local police station, once to obtain a permit to purchase, then again to present the gun for inspection and return your paperwork.

    I have no problem with that. Where we differ is on the usefulness of registration. It hasn't resulted in much of anything where I live.
