    Has this been posted yet?

    Don't know how many people saw it yet.

    The idea is simple, during the week of July 4th buy a firearm that requires a 4473. A private sale would not count, since its not recorded. The intent is to boost the number of back ground checks during the week as a way to send a message.

    I may very well participate. But why purchases requiring a 4473? Why not face-to-face without records, as my state would allow?

    Perhaps I'll choose to buy a Mosin from Big 5 that week. That's the only thing I think I'd be interested in right now.
