When you do a private sale you're supposed to check the license status on the portal (eFA/10 system) and verify it's valid before conducting the sale. That IS a background check because if the person were disqualified the license would no longer be valid.
So - new legislation is not needed.... and Lie-inski needs to learn how to do "research"
Not precisely true, but frankly the "leak through" probability on an LTC holder evading detection is extremely small, given that the person with the LTC still has to undergo a full blown BG check (state and federal) every 6 years. (eg, for offenses that occured outside of MA, etc. ) Basically Linstain is bitching about something that is unrealistic and statistically improbable. He'd be better off buying a powerball ticket than finding a case where "someone had an LTC but magically suddenly became federally prohibited because of some offense that happened somewhere else so they didnt know and waah they bought a gun and did something bad with it". Just doesn't add up.
Up to $25.. that bullshit an ffl can charge whatever he likes to do a transfer.. not that i agree with it being more but at some places it is more than $25. The state mandating what someone should charge would make me simply say"i dont do transfers, only sales...sorry"
