I can go to a friends place with $7000 and buy a car and drive it home. I believe in maintaining your average citizen's ability to do the same with a gun.I believe in being able to sell a gun to my friend over cash and a handshake. The same way I can sell a car to him. The same way I can sell anything that I own.
No I don't believe guns should be regulated exactly the same as cars are. I just think that the ability to conduct a private transaction without gov't oversight is an important freedom to maintain.
