How do you enforce that for the 300+ million guns already in circulation?
The same way we enforce any law. What's your genius point, that because we have murders we should do away with the laws prohibiting it?
You don't understand. Let's say UBG passes and goes into effect tomorrow. Some perp gets caught with a gun and the dealer records show I was the original purchaser, 15 years ago. The authorities knock on my door and I say I sold that gun 14 years ago.See my genius point now?
Exactly, Anonymous. And add to that the fact that we have long borders that already allow drugs and illegal immigrants across. Guns would be easy to include in that smuggling operation.
If there is a record of the sale, they would not come back to you.
If the United States where to seriously reduce, combat, and progressively eliminate civilian stockpiles of weapons, the regulation of such semi-illicit civilian arms ought to be avoided in order to ensure that gun owners cannot obtain legitimacy. Any true American patriot, both Liberal or Conservative, who seeks to control arms, and relegate professional tools for a prescribed professional use, ought to avoid the temptations in regulation or compromise which would ultimately serve to pervert the agenda. If we enact life saving regulation which may slightly reduce gun violence -as opposed to confronting the problem in its entirety- (and ensure years of legitimacy for gun owners) we sell countless lives of future generations to the global scourge of small arms.

I'm not terribly surprised by this comment, considering his position. With him being a police chief in a state unfriendly to gun rights, he either needs to have drunk the Kool-Aid, or at least parrot the party line in regards to gun control. In 2012, Maryland had a violent crime rate of 476.8 per 100,000k compared to Minnesota which had a violent crime rate of 230.9 per 100k. This is an improvement over the much more restrictive Washington DC which had a violent crime rate of 1243.7 per 100k. Looking at these numbers make me wonder if gun control advocates might have a point when they contend that the violence in restrictive states are caused by guns brought in from less restrictive states. I'm wondering if perhaps they might just be looking in the wrong direction. I wonder if perhaps violent crime flows outward from states with restrictive laws to states with more gun freedom.
It certainly raises the question of why guns don't stay home to commit violence where they're welcome.
Cops friendly to pro gun certainly explains why cops say it was an accident before their investigation is even don, of course making their investigation biased.
