Gun transaction records

John Ashcroft is on our side (I hope). Excuse my ignorance, but does this mean that records are NOT kept at all after a certain period? My gut tells me that no government would actually give up such "valuable" information. Doesn't some agency actually keep the records?

    Yeah, and if you believe the records are not kept you just might believe in the tooth fairy.

    Gun transaction records are kept forever. With access to database you can trace firearms back to date first sold. Of course the crooks don't help 'cause they don't record the transfer of their theft. Imagine that, crooks don't care what the laws are, or about waiting periods, DOJ checks.........
