I don't think it's the government's business to run my background every time I buy a firearm, though.
Yep, especially when you trade a working firearm in, you shouldn't have to wait to get the one you traded for. I have just got used to the checks though, its really not that big a deal.
I'm not worried about turning mine in though, my guns or my FOID card. Its not going to happen. If it does I'll become an outlaw again, because I'm keeping my guns, till they take
them away by force.
The Sheriff and local state police can verify that it would be a chore getting my firearms by force. Multiply me times a few million and its stupid to even suggest it. So lets forget that when we talk about stricter checks, its not happening.
