|Because there are _federal_ _criminal_ penalties for knowingly selling to a prohibited person -- meaning that if BATF can make it stick, someone gets to go to Leavenworth.|
|After the rifle found in Muhammad's car was traced to the Bull's Eye shop, officials confirmed that during an audit two years ago, 150 guns at the store had been found unaccounted for|
|Under federal law, gun dealers are required to report a stolen or lost gun within 48 hours. The law also requires receipts from gun sales to be kept for 30 years|
|The National Rifle Association (NRA) said that if Bull's Eye intentionally broke the law, the dealer should face prosecution. But Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the NRA, also blasted gun-control advocates for using the sniper case for political reasons.
"Here we go again: another tragedy, and lurking around the corner are these gun-ban groups who are trying to twist it to their agenda," LaPierre said.

... Many of the people wishing for more regulation are not "anti-gun" as you put it at all. I just want more regulation and harsher penalties for not following the law ...
... When tragedy strikes because of ineffeciant laws the NRA continues to be blind to the obvious holes in the system. I would respect the NRA far more if they would agree to work with those trying to create gun control laws rather than fight kicking and screaming at even reasonable attempts at regulation.
