A person is a lot less likely to kill someone with something that give a clue as to who may have used the killing tool.

Let's face it. Guns make killing easy. Their sole purpose is to put holes in things from a distance with speed and force. And the guns can be traced with a little protocol.
What is stopping someone from getting a gun and filing off the serial number, making it untraceable? You keep bringing up untraceable guns, but the reality is that everything that is proposed hurts legal gun owners.

I am all for the ATF doing their jobs, appointing a director and cracking down on this kind of thing. Stop the under the table sale from a gun shop is fine with me. Most people who are law abiding people pay the fees and get the background checks. I question how the ATF knows what shops are selling guns under the table for cash, if the guns cannot be traced.
