Lets say you sell a firearm here on this site or elsewhere. A year later the police show up at your door and inform you that they found that firearm that is registered to you at a crime scene, and you have some explaining to do. You tell them that you sold that gun a year ago. Of course they are going to want to know who you sold the gun to. What are you going to do? Do you remember who you sold that gun to?

Or lets say you bought a used gun from a private seller. A year later you decide to trade that gun at a local gun dealer. Thats when you find out that the gun has been reported stolen. The police are called and they want to know why you have a stolen firearm in your possesion. What are you going to do? Will you remember who you bought the gun from?
