On his radio show today, Hannity said he supports background checks at gunshows - which I interpret to be support for UBC. Here's what I sent him on his website tonight:

I heard Sean on the radio today give his support for universal background checks. I guess Sean forgets all of the following:1. Background checks would not and have not have stopped a single mass shooting in the US.
2. Background checks require gun registration to be effective or there's no way to ensure compliance
3. Gun registration always results in gun confiscation


I've been a Hannity fan for as long as he's been on Fox News Channel and on Patriot Channel. I'm very disappointed that Sean is selling out his core audience. I don't get to listen on the radio often but I watch almost every night on Fox. I hope Sean gets enough negative feedback for his remarks that he rethinks what he said. If I don't see a retraction on Fox TV by the end of the week I will assume Sean has switched sides or been replaced with a pod-person. In either case, unless there's a public retraction, Friday will be my last time to watch Hannity on any platform.

I have yet to see anyone come forward and explain how UBC can be enforced. There is only one way and it's total gun registration which is another thing that in no way could be accomplished.

EXACTLY!!! Ghost Guns United!!!



I'm not even talking about ghost guns but yes they would certainly have a impact. I live in NY where we have UBC laws and i can tell you for certain that people buy and sell guns often without going to a dealer and paying the $20-30 transfer fee. I'm sure it's the same in other states. The only exception is for "law abiding people" are handguns because they are registered and permitted so you pretty much have to go through a dealer because you need a receipt to add and subract the gun from your permit. it's been like this long before the UBC laws except prior to that i don't think they had to call the NICS, just using your license was good enough. Now of course criminals do no such thing, they get them from out of state straw buyers, steal them or buy them from others that steal them so the laws really don''t affect them. Also you would not believe the amount of handguns that show up from honest people who have had the guns in their family for many many years and had no idea they were supposed to be registered. I bet my dads small shop used to get 15-20 per year that people found in grampas sock drawer after he passed away. usually those were traced and if found not stolen were able to be sold and or permitted. Now if they were to implement a national gun registry how many people would comply? Half? How many would partially comply and register some of their guns and not some others because they think eventually the registration will lead to confiscation? Short of going door to door searching every house it would pretty much be on the honor system no? With the amount of guns out there all of this stuff would just be impossible to accomplish.

i had a good visit with the hardware store owner in my town.....which is the only source for ammo and guns. We talked a bit about UBC and the impact on his business. All kinds of discussion there about how to handle people conducting transfers in his store, booking guns, back ground checking, logging out, the time required, the liability of some really untrained widows bringing in loaded guns for a transfer.
The cost factor to be charged, delays, etc,etc............

its cumbersome, its a burden, its a liability, its inconvenient, and it increases costs......

and it will not do anything unless they make it a mandatory gun registration for the database.

It is getting scary when even so called staunch conservatives think that UBC's will appease the gun grabbing liberals


Exactly because if this was implemented as soon as there were some more mass shootings within a year they would be calling for more laws that will again do nothing.


Deputy brings up another good point of something that occasionally happens. If someone other than the original owner brings a gun in to sell and the buyer fails the UBC then the seller actually has to go through one too in order to get the gun back. Most people don't realize this. if the seller fails the UBC then the gun is now in possession of the FFL. I'm sure they would give a great price for it though.
