I never really thought about it before, but after dozens of times of being run on the NICS system either at a local level for registering my handguns, or on a federal level for buying any firearm at an ffl, what's the point of any of the paperwork you fill out? To me it's more or less like a big brother saying "I already know all the answers to the questions i'm asking you, but what do YOU feel about yourself before I check your test?" To me it seems like a cheap trick to try to trip up a person who is totally legal to own a firearm. it just makes no sense to me. Has anyone ever thought about it like me before?
