At least, that is how I'm reading this article. Fortunately, they let someone with some common sense have the last word.
This is just another way of pushing for a ban of gun shows.
My question is: what would they have the police to do with confiscated guns? Lose them? I would imagine that that would place them into criminal hands more readily than selling them to licensed gun dealers.
Of course no research went into how many guns across the US are sold by police agencies to peaceable citizens and not used in crime. That would be hard.
