The letter just sent out states
FFL facilitations of private firearms transfers will also help law enforcement's ability to trace firearms if they are later recovered at a crime
How does it help to trace firearms if all records are destroyed after 24hr ?
If the FFL has to keep the records for 10 years already . How does this help ?
Does lets say colt have a record of what store got what firearms and the government just ask them what FFL dealer they sold the gun to ? The gov then just goes to that FFL dealer and checks there records ?
That may work with brand new guns but as soon as a used gun is sold PP though a FFL they will no longer be able to trace it , especially if originally bought before 2013 . Yes ?
