He then does a thought experiment - what if you could actually do it (even though you can't)? Spoiler alert - it still wouldn't work. RTWT.One of the folks who is rooting for the prosecution of every gun owner in the state who either failed to comply, or who tried to comply but missed the deadline, is suggesting that they use the background check database to find out who bought an assault weapon, cross reference that to the folks who didn’t register an assault weapon, and then go pay those folks a visit.Once again, the absolute ignorance of these people when it comes to guns and existing laws is just jaw-dropping. Also, they have already contradicted the arguments against the background check system, in that it would be used as a de facto registry – that didn’t take long. But I’m just a paranoid nut.Allow me to lay a little bit of learning on you, folks…The background check database is going to tell you three things:1. Who applied for a gun purchase;2. Whether the gun was a long gun or a pistol;3. Whether they were approved to purchase the weapon or not.What it is NOT going to tell you is the following:1. If the gun was actually purchased after approval (it isn’t entirely unheard of that a guy changes his mind after approval and doesn’t buy the gun);2. If the gun was a scary black gun or one of the friendly wooden-stocked types, identical in every way to the scary gun, but without the scary looking features like the shoulder thingy that goes up.3. If the person who bought the gun still owns said gun. Contrary to popular belief, it is totally legal for a man to sell his own legally owned property without asking the state’s permission.
