Let's see if I got this right. Someone who is going to buy a 9mm pistol in a bar from a guy named Joe is going to enter his name, email address, serial number of the gun, and other identifying information in order to find out if this gun is stolen. Yeah, right.
Why don't they simply publish a list of all guns that they have verified with law enforcement as being stolen and let ANYONE look at their list to see if any gun they might be interested in is on that list?
I have a feeling that something other than helping citizens identify stolen guns is at work here. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but I think I'll pass.
