Something to think about.
“I was watching one of those crime dramas recently—‘NCIS’ or something—when it showed a cop using his smartphone to look up the history of a criminal’s gun. Then all this data appeared on his phone. When it was sold, who bought it … everything. People think we can do that now, but we can’t.”
He stopped there, but clearly he would like the ATF to have this ability. This would constitute an online and searchable database of all gun sales done at FFLs; such a database would, of course, also create a list of gun owners.”
I imagine he may have said something like, “…here, hold my beer,” just before doing something so stupid.
