    address straw purchasing? Toughening the BC system, for example, including more info, compelling states to supply more info? Is it the existing BC system expanded into private sales, gun shows, internet and any other point of purchase not currently covered by the BC system?

    •  That's a good question (6+ / 0-)

      I have been focused on understand some of the state laws, through the lens of the Appeals Court decisions and SCOTUS petitions, so I haven't drilled down to that level of detail yet.

      I hope readers who are closer to the federal legislation will address or link to what they think. (Or write new diaries proposing what needs to be addressed by any new bill).

      If I had time right now, I'd start my research by looking at states that already have Universal Background Check laws and see how they might apply nationally.
