Do you see how gun registration would prevent things like this? Let me explain. Let's say every gun legally bought had to be registered to a licensed gun owners. After three months and every year thereafter he'd have to renew the registration by presenting the gun and documents to the local police of a FFL dealer. Punishment for non-compliance would be swift and severe, the first part of which would be permanent loss of gun rights.British police believe Steven Greenoe, 37, a former US Marine who lives in Shrewsbury, bought the weapons including Glock 9mm pistols, legally in gun shops in North Carolina and then put them in his hold luggage.
The alleged smuggling operation was discovered after weapons seized from criminals in the North West of England were traced back to America. One of them was found to have been used in a drive-by shooting in Manchester.
Mr Greenoe was stopped at an airport in Raleigh, North Carolina in July as he attempted to board a flight to Manchester via New York. He had 16 weapons and ammunition magazines in his luggage.
What do you think? Wouldn't that help the problem of gun flow from the lawful gun-owning world into the criminal black market?
