Well I'm a 2 parter so here goes: 1.) if it's for license or more commonly known FFLA dealer and we are extending the time to 3 days I'm torn. An extra day or two (or competent FBI) could help some of past experiences famous in media. But I agree in digital age it shouldn't be that long. For $7.99 or $35 I can get all my past history in 3 mins. Now 2.) if you're talking about private sales, someone please tell me how do you enforce that? Do not come at me with registry because that's an automatic NO. 3.) a bonus question - how do we prevent the 97% of gun crimes which were not purchased legally or by lies and omissions? If you can answer without stepping on rights and it's logical, then I'll hear you out.
