Firearms Dealers Perform Background Checks

Posted: Updated:

It's a topic on a lot of minds today. Should there be stricter laws for who can and can not purchase a gun?

While it may be impossible to stop illegal gun purchases, licensed dealers and the federal government are doing what they can to be more careful about who is allowed to purchase a firearm by running detailed background checks, and logging every piece of equipment that comes in and out of stores.

"Everything that comes in and out we're required to keep track of. So, when we order from DPMS, Ruger, Glock, any of those companies, all if it is sent in to us. We have to log in where it comes from and then when we sell it, when it physically leaves the store, where it went to, along with the background check," says firearms instructor Nick Couture, Jay's Pawn Shop.

Many gun stores and pawn shops have transitioned from paper background checks to online ones in order to eliminate any handwriting mistakes.
