But then what's to stop chuckle heads from going to gun stores and gun shows and doing it.
Falsifying police reports is also a crime that gets prosecuted a lot. While most gun values don't rise to felony level false reporting generally does.
Its a lot more effort to scam using a online serial than it is to make a fake gunbroker/ebay type add. Criminals are lazy as hell with no work ethic. They aren't going to do the research needed to find you and come to your town spending tons of money in travel to scam you out of a 400$ gun...
"Gun control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound." L. Neil Smith
The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...
