C'mon 604, Do you really think that the "gun sellers" are not complying? The ATF would be on them like white on rice. As far as your second point. Define "certain period of time", 1 day, 1 week, 1 month

The Left routinely ascribes absolute moral authority to grieving victims in furtherance of their political agenda.  Their agitprop is often manipulative and exploitive, but it works.  Appeals to facts and reason aren't enough anymore; persuading the public increasingly requires emotional appeals.  Even if they find it inherently unpalatable, conservatives must promote people whose personal stories offer counter-narratives to liberals' tragic parade of victimhood.  Katie
