So here is a question. Does that firearm owner privacy act mean those idiots that published the names and addresses of firearm owners in New York can be prosecuted for invading their privacy?

What about the boxes of 4473's turned in when the FFLsurrenders his license and stored at the ATF storage facility. To locate an individual form would be time consuming, labor intensive and very costly. I am sure that a very small percentage of gun crimes are solved by the 4473, but does not justify the tons of paperwork generated.
So, what are you saying? The guns need to be registered to facilitate tracking and crime solving? The turned in 4473's need to be digitized?
The 4473's should just be shredded because it is to costly and time consuming to look stuff up? The whole 4473 idea needs to be scrapped as it does nothing?

Pleae clarify.
