How do you not know your behavior has created a problem with NICS? Are we saying the average gun purchaser is too uninformed the legal complaints against them for their actions will restrict their ability to buy guns? Of course, coming from the side of the equation where the DOD even has my DNA sample, and I can't get away with "I dindu nuffin!" how is it these stoppage issues are being handled after the fact? You do the crime then it goes into NICS, right? Well, as we have found out, not so much. The system is fraught with bureaucratic inefficiencies. So, somebody has to go back and get the gun? Umm, sounds like a dynamic entry team experience, or, do you call them up on the phone and say, please come down and turn it in? Considering this could be a year later - you're going to hear "I sold it, it's in a pawn shop, my uncle borrowed it, the ex has it now, it was stolen out of my truck, I lost it on a bet," and the ever classic "it fell out of the boat in a tragic hunting accident. I sure miss that gun." Of course you might well ask how a gun was lost overboard while marlin fishing over the Marianas Trench, but that's up to others to prove. Point being that the article is just churning clicks for infotainment. About the only real concern is the angst over civil rights on internet boards. Since we haven't read of the ATF burning down compounds out in flyover land trying to recover a Stevens .22 which was gifted to a grandson while somebody's raging divorce settlement clouds the ownership, I'm not losing sleep over it. There's no "smoking gun" to point to in this article to support the contention it's a real problem. Give us names, dates, and show casings marked at the scene and I'll check back. Be advised the media is not above trying to popularize "rumors of wars" and how that fits into the current timeline.
