You must not think like a criminal.
And if they report another stolen a month later, and then another a couple of months later, do you think the cops will think there is something funny going on.second if someone is going to sell a firearm to ANYONE even if it's registered, I would think ten minutes later it will be reported stolen.
And not knowing where the guns are coming from helps? Could you imagine if none of our cars were licensed? Somebody crashes into a school bus load of kids and the driver runs away. The cops come around and they notice it is a blue car. "Well that is going to be a lot of help helping us solve this one."Look, there IS a black market for firearms, there is no way to stop it or control it.
And the rest are sold by someone who acquired them legally. What is to stop someone that wants to sell guns to any Tom Dick and Hoodie from buying guns legally and then pass them along to unsavory individuals? Oh yeah I forgot.Most firearms that are on/in the black market have been stolen from someone else. registering a firearm does nothing if the gun is found at a crime scene except let the police know who originally bought the thing, which means nothing because the cops are not going to give the gun back, they will destroy it. so big whoop
common sense.We are trying but the damn liberals think differently.How about this, lets punish the douche that uses a gun during the commission of a crime.....hey, theres an idea. lets make criminals pay.....naaa thats the liberal mamby-pamby the poor criminal is just misunderstood mentality.
http://www.ctv.ca/CTVNews/TorontoNew...inimum-120213/An Ontario Superior Court judge has chosen to defy the federal government by refusing to impose a mandatory three-year sentence on a man caught with a loaded handgun, because to do so would be akin to "cruel and unusual punishment."
You seem to miss the point of registration. The main reason for it is to remind the owner to be responsible with their firearms. Prevent the crime in the first place and society is a happier place.Registration DOES NOTHING to deter crime, why is that concept so hard to understand.....sheesh
Lets check out the NYS CoBIS program. This is a unique registration program technically called "Combined Ballistic Identification System" or Ballistic DNA. Not only do we get to register our hand guns but we get to turn in A single fired case from that weapon.

As of Dec 1, 2011 there are 356,000+ guns registered, tax payer cost $44,333,333+, number of crimes solved, ZERO (although the system did have two "hits")
Gun registration doesn't work because the bad guys DON'T CARE
