50. The need for an assault weapons ban is not axiomatic, whatever you may claim.

The rifle used at Sandy Hook was not legal in Connecticut, so it was obviously brought there
illegally by someone.

My proposals are interconnected:

*Make use of the NICS (instant background check system) mandatory for ALL firearms
transfers.

*Open it to private sellers, otherwise it's corporate welfare for licensed firearms dealers.

*A carrot and stick approach to encourage its use:
1) Immunity from civil and criminal liability for those sellers who properly use it.
The other side of that coin would be-
2) In addition to whatever penalties entail for illegal transfer, make a seller who doesn't
use the NICS an accessory before the fact for whatever crime might be committed with
said firearm.

Who says we're opposed to common-sense gun control?
