This is something that our "Government" should be providing for free. We pay them to maintain the database so why is it only available to members of the "Club"? I can look into lots of other government databases, why not one that would actually help stem the trade in stolen firearms?
Not that your idea isn't a good one, I am having a hard time with the information not being available to anyone with an internet connection at no charge. We're already paying for it through our taxes.
