Other than being shut down, what level of penalties does a gun dealer face by not following the federal laws ?
When you say there is a very violent industry in New Orleans, what do you mean by industry ?
Today a state can impose a death sentence or life in prison on someone who commits murder with a firearm. But the “What, me worry?” gun dealer, who supplies multiple murderers with guns he claims were “stolen” from his inventory, guns he never recorded on his books, or guns he sold to straw buyers with a wink and a nod, can operate with virtual impunity, thanks to laws written by the NRA.

One of these, passed in 1986, drastically reduced penalties for dealers who violate record-keeping laws, making violations misdemeanors rather than felonies. Another established an absurdly high standard of proof to convict dealers who sell to criminals. In 2003, Congress, at the NRA’s urging, barred the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the much-maligned agency responsible for enforcing federal gun laws, from forcing dealers to conduct inventory inspections that would detect lost and stolen guns. Car dealers like to know when inventory goes missing. Gun dealers? Not so curious.

What did you enjoy about the poem ? more importantly, why did you think it would be over your head ?
Over my head - I've read it before - I did understand it, but because you recommended it, I thought it would be a little too intellectual for me.
What did I enjoy about the poem? It was easy to understand and it had a message. It was very well done - talented guy.
Wait...was he the guy who lost his son in the war? Or was that someone else?
Thanks for recommending it.

Anymore?

Yes I do know that, I also know that is negated if the child is brought up with an abusive father who deprives the child of that affection and protection from it's mother either through direct cruelty or by forcing the mother to accompany him in his travels abandoning the child or children to carers..if the male is also a mysogynist this escalates and adds to the problems for males.

It works like this. The gun purchaser is interviewed after the gun is traced back to him.
He says " I have nothing to say and request a lawyer"
The police cannot prosecute without evidence unless he is caught in the act.Then they cant prove that he was acting illegally because private gun sales are not subject to background checks.
"You have the right to remain silent"
I don't know what Louisiana law is, but you are required to report a lost or stolen gun within 36 hrs. of discovery here. You might get away with that once unless the person who was caught with the gun gives you up to lessen his punishment. I'm not sure what the penalty is, but there is a mandatory jail sentence, second offense, just for not having car insurance here. I believe it's a 500 to 1000 dollar fine, I'm not sure.

There is also civil a civil liability for any damages caused by an unreported gun.

You dont seem toknow much at all Tea. You had better talk to some other uninformed part of the citizenry that Ike warned about. Because the civilian arm of the MIC has you bamboozled, hoodwinked and is influencing your Legislative branch with every trick in the book.
Why? To get the money. Just like the Tobacco Institute.

Well, what's the legal result should you happen to be on vacation for 30 days and when you get back home but don't realize that your gun is missing?

Does that same law apply to stolen automobiles, prescription drugs, kitchen knives, baseball bats, full-body condoms, etc.?

Aus doe not have the gun crime.

UK does not have the gun crime.

Neither does small town USA and other regions have the gun crime as Sanctuary Cities: Chicago; NYC; Oakland; Compton.

conclusion

Multiculturalism causes violence, not guns.

Firearms are a necessary tool of survival. The 2nd Amendment guarantees that. Encroachment of this right is an illegal move and should be treated as such. Spilling the blood of tyrannts is needed now!

Sorta funny a limey would even comment about Americans and guns. It was his overbearing ancestors that embedded our need for firearms to defend our country. Now some silly pimple of a POS is commenting about the USA?. We shoulda kept our firearms to ourselves and that silly sob would be speaking german today! AND Ill never forget the pics of the whimpy Frenchies as the Nazis rolled in. Those panty laced bastards just stood there crying as the Germans raped thier wives and pillaged thier country. Whata bunch of losers. Hahaha! Lots of luck you fool! Rather have a busy mortician that a nice fat king any day! Hahaha
