Gun Shop verified the ID and it was legitimate by the look of the card or document but they has no means to trace back the documents/ID to a real person. No online verification. So whats the purpose of having such verification. Same is the case with RIR, isn't it? They check the documents but they don't have the means to traceback the legitimacy of all the documents and claims the customer is posing. Correct me if I'm wrong? Regards Aftab A.
