Deepen Gun Ownership

The article discusses the need to deepen the sense of gun ownership in the U.S. Gun trafficking should be made a federal crime and not a term of art. Trafficking should be redefined to include selling multiple guns out of a home, car, street, or park that have two or more of the following characteristics: obliterated serial numbers, are stolen, are new in the box, or are sold to underage buyers or people with felony records. The gun-show loophole should also be closed since this loophole is exploited by buyers who obtain used guns to resell on the streets.
