Yeah, sure stiffer penalties are wonderful....except the current laws for straw purchases (and/or falsification of the 4473 form) RARELY ever get enforced, and sadly (violent) felons don't typically serve their full sentences either.

See above, violent criminals typically don't serve their full sentence, so keeping them off the streets would be great (but wouldn't hold my breath)

Actually as a (private) seller of a firearm I can choose not to sell to someone who refuses to sign a bill of sale (that can states they aren't prohibited from owning one).
I can request to see an OH CHL and not sell to someone who won't (or can't) show it to me...for that matter I can choose to conduct the sale thru an FFL and either ask the buyer to pay their fee (or split the cost with them)....His options don't really do anything and quite frankly aren't really enforceable anyway.

Again, enforce laws on the books, don't accept (slap on the wrist) plea's on violent crimes etc....

Likely because of this reaction and unwillingness to consider anything other than a narrow path that is simply unobtainable, that being the removal of notification and constitutional carry. Neither of which by the way address the daily and mass violence that is ever prevalent.
So why did he Claim he did consult the OFCC? (Oh right he's a politician) and removal of notification nor implementing constitutional carry would Increase the violence problem either (as has been shown elsewhere)
