It should be a felony to provide false information or simply lie on any government form concerning past felony convictions. Perhaps the fear of more jail time would be enough to keep convicted felons from trying to purchase firearms.

The broken system is a joke. Harassing legal buyers and allowing criminals to do what criminals do.

Of persons lying on ATF form 4473 for purchasing a firearm, reports show that, between 2008 and 2015, the FBI denied 556,496 gun purchases following background checks. During that time period, the report shows that only 254 false statements were even considered for prosecution, amounting to a 0.04 percent prosecution rate.

One more thing they could be using instead of wanting more gun laws, we have plenty if the ones we have were just enforced.

Ten comandments and the golden rule are enough if people would just abide by them.

If you were referring to me, it is a felony. Just very seldom prosecuted. Therein lies one of many problems with the system.

It should be at or near the top of the list since it's so easy to know when it happens, and serves as a significant deterrent to felons purchasing firearms.
