Personal transfer of firearms
There is quite a bit in the news recently regarding the woman who purchased the guns that were used by a 2nd party in the shooting of the firefighters. Clearly she broke the law by purchasing firearms with the intent to transfer them to another person. I know in Massachusetts you have to "swear under penalties of perjury" that you will be the intended owner when you make such a purchase. However, the personal sale of firearms is common and as far as I know (although I've never bought or sold a gun in a personal transaction), such sales can occur without the normal paper work.
I am curious as to how people here would feel about a law that required that all personal sales go through an FFL? I know that would incur a transaction fee ($20-$30), but it would ensure that the buyer is legally able to own/possess the gun being sold. I'm in 100% support of the 2nd amendment but I do think that to avoid draconian "banning" laws, it is going to be necessary to take stronger action to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.
