Sorry for the questions. Not a gun owner and my state makes it really hard to become one so I am not too knowledgeable about it.
Indeed he could and probably will be. Not too mention being charged with the Federal crime of knowingly selling a firearm to a prohibited possessor.

Myself, if I were to sell one of my guns either handgun or long gun privately. I would only sell to someone who had both a valid drivers license and concealed weapons permit from my home State of Arizona. I would also request and keep a copy of both along with a record of when I sold the firearm. It's just not worth the hassle and legal ramifications if a gun I sold was later on used in a crime. Having a concealed weapons permit would assure me that the individual I sold a firearm to was not a prohibited possessor as described by Federal law.

Well now they’re blaming the president.

It’s their only argument and it never works.

Trump can now simply run on “Dems will take away your guns” and will win the re-election easily.

Hindsight is always 20/20.

Doesn't seem there is anything in his past that would have prevented him from buying a gun.

We don't live in the world of "Minority Report"...crimes are not known before they happen.

It was common and everybody did it.
You are mistaken. When people vote in primaries in Texas, they are "registered" with the party's primary that they vote in, as you are only allowed to vote in one. Anyone who says otherwise does not know what they are talking about.

Knives are kind of lacking as an instrument of mass murder, but if you're going to argue that purchase and and ownership of firearms should be regulated akin to explosives, I am certain we could find some common ground. And I'm all for registration, competence tests and mandatory insurance for vehicles and firearms both.

Thanks for the info.
But if the seller requested the permit along with another form of identification he/she did the right thing and therefore I doubt very much that they would be charged with a crime or could even be sued. That's why I would request a copy of both for my records along with seeing the real thing before privately selling any firearm. If the purchaser refused, I wouldn't sell the firearm to them, PERIOD.

It's another reason why I keep any guns that are not on my person in a safe. If someone were to steal any of them and took them out of a dresser drawer. That would be negligent on my part and more than likely I could be held civilly responsible and sued if the firearm were used in a crime.

The Dems don't want your guns. First they want Trump to quit his hateful racist rhetoric. We want assault weapon bans. And before some of you come on here to school me on the definition of assault weapons, don't bother because I'm not interested. We also want background checks. That would be a start. It's a shame that the president of the U.S. promotes white nationalism and demonizes those who are "other."

That would be too easy.

I'd rather he sit in a prison cell pondering his fate waiting for the day to arrive when he gasps for air, flapping like a fish on a gurney as a needle is stuck into his arm.

They're so brain washed into believing that Trump is responsible for all of the evils of the world probably going back into the Middle Ages.

It wasn't long ago that video games were blamed. Now Trump is on the scene and he is blamed for it. You ban assault weapons and shooting will continue. Then you say this is not enough and we have to confiscate them. This is actually a logical move but you don't have the guts to say it now. You want to death by a thousand cuts. Oh, about "hateful" language, espousing the rule of law is not hateful language. It's the Dema who have unleashed 100,000 people on the southern border through their misguided(?) legislations. They need to stop.
