      jeff in NYC seems to be saying that there should be no private sales. I assume that means if you have a gun you don't want any more, either you are stuck with it or you can sell it to a dealer. I can't see that working out, the guns will simply be sold illegally since there's no way to tell who owns what.
      And Not A Bot is saying that he requires a bill of sale on guns he sells, for his own protection in case the gun is used in a crime.
      Question: How would anyone know that a gun you sold, that maybe was sold again, was used in a crime, ever belonged to you in the first place? Unless you bought it from a dealer who had a list of customers and serial numbers of the guns he'd sold to them and gave that list to BATF, there's no way to trace the provenance of guns.
      Without registration, there is no control.

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
