The other way to do it, and it's done in other states, is that you have to run every sale through a dealer. I pass my guns down to my kids and my local dealer gets $40 a pop. And he still doesn't know my kid as well as I do.
Right. All I know is that he can pass a background check, which means he hasn't been caught for something yet. Your knowledge is more valuable.
Furthermore, such a measure would make life harder for dealers. That would increase the paperwork burden significantly.
