Re: New Article: SB258 by Ellis: Yet Another Gun Show Bill

Charles, I will be facebooking this. I hope you don't mind me playing "copy editor", but I found another typo:
SB258: Sales Between Private Persons Require a NICS Background Check

Sen. Ellis’ Bill would make it a Class A Misdemeanor (one year in jail and/or $4,000 fine) for a gun show “promoter” to permit the sale of a firearm between private persons at his gun show. Remember that the broad definition of “gun show” includes parking lots and streets and ask yourself how a gun show promoter is supposed to police a public street or parking lot.

The private seller would be required to keep records of any sale, but the Bill is silent as to what information must be obtained, how long records must be kept, in what from must they be maintained, what happens to the records when the seller dies, etc.
Thank you for writing these things. With your familiarity with both the law, and with gun rights, you state these things better than I ever could, and being able to promote these articles through social media is a great way to get the word out.

By the way, do you have a link to an article or video of Ellis making his statement that it's OK to lie? I'd love to include that when I facebook this.
