>>146942931>I’ve heard you can just buy any gun only showing a driving license in some states no
not legally from a dealer. to buy a gun you have to be a resident of the state, and when buying from a licensed firearms dealer you need to fill out a form with personal information like your address, name, weight, height, thumbprint etc, and provide photo identification to prove its you, then that information gets sent electronically to the FBI criminal database where it is background checked for criminal history. some states dont regulate private secondary sales, like if i decide i want to sell a gun to my neighbor, he can just give me cash and i can just give him the gun. but its up to the seller and buyer to still comply with the existing laws regarding prohibited persons. it is a crime to sell a gun to someone who cant legally possess it. of course you dont always know the criminal history of random people, so you can insist on going to a licensed dealer to transfer the weapon to make sure they go to the background check but this step is optional in some states like i said.
anyway its not like the criminals on the street care, they are peddling stolen guns and shit smuggled from mexico. if our justice system would just fucking incarcerate these fuckers and keep them there or execute them instead of letting these gang members out for 'good behavior' after 1 year in prison for attempted murder and assault with a firearm. its a joke, you can be a gang member and kill someone and be out on parole in 5 years and then go do the same thing
