Manchin wrong on gun bill

May 26, 2013
Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Sen. Manchin needs to stop peddling his gun-control legislation or make some serious changes to it because right now it is awful. Current law requires licensed gun dealers to keep the completed background check form 4473 for 20 years and to turn them over to the government if the dealer goes out of business. These forms are available to the government anytime, contain details on the buyer as well as details on the specific firearm purchased such as caliper, serial number, make and model. The ATF routinely during their inspections of gun dealers, copies in some manner the records of that gun dealer. Their database may not be complete, but it is certainly in existence. I just listened to a PBS radio show discussing law enforcement tracing firearms and without some registry, that would be impossible.
