    Don't start stoning me until you've read it all, let me know what you think.

    Lots of debate on firearms ownership kicked around ad nauseum on ODT and everywhere else. I have a proposal for you all to consider.

    A Federal Background Check program shall be instituted with the following governing principles:
    - Any firearm transfer requires the recipient to display their federal background check card
    - Background check cards will be revoked on conviction or guilty plea of any felony crime (with explicit list of eligible crimes so idiot states like Commiefornia don't make it a felony to breathe)
    - On revocation of any background check card the owner shall have the option to sell to an eligible party or to surrender to law enforcement
    - Background check cards shall be issued for a term of 5 years and checked at least annually for presence of felony crime (to catch anyone that slipped through reporting wise)
    - On renewal request where no felonies are noted renewal shall be issued
    - Voluntary forfeiture of background check cards require transfer of firearms to an eligible party
    - Loan of firearms shall be restricted to eligible card holders
    - Purchase eligibility for firearms is not restricted to in state purchases, anyone with a current and valid card is eligible to purchase firearms anywhere in the US
    - Background check card will also serve as a national concealed carry permit

    They already have a "background check card" its called a concealed carry license. Agree with you on all points if you exchange "background check card" with concealed carry license.

    Otherwise, No F-ing way.

    You're not a politician are you, because you sound like a politician?
