103. please may I borrow you funny specs?

article:

Wintemute also says more needs to be done to prevent these unregulated and illegal gun sales at gun shows.

"Law enforcement needs to have an expanded, proactive program at gun shows to prevent the illegal sale of guns," said Wintemute. "We also need to update existing laws so that all private-party gun sales, not just those at gun shows, are subject to the same safeguards now in place for gun purchases from licensed dealers."


what I replied to:

But I certainly don't think that there is evidence enough to enact legislation against private sales.


You seem to be asserting that there is something in the quotation from the article that supports a claim that someone is seeking to "enact legislation against private sales".

Perhaps you could point it out, maybe in red letters? I seem to be missing it.

Firearms transfers by licensed dealers are subject to the purchaser passing a background check.

Are firearms transfers by licensed dealers banned?
