Completely agree. This is the "gun show" loophole. It applies to flea markets and people's basements as well. You only have to "occasionally" sell weapons to not have to do a background check or have proper paperwork. Everybody and their mothers should say "What the hell is this crap!?!"
I believe there already are in most cases? I could be wrong, but I'm not sure exactly what you mean in this regard.
Most of this I would leave open to local laws. It's not the federal gov'ts job to police everyone. That's why we have local politicians and law enforcement. That's not to say that I don't completely disagree with you, but that's something that should be done on a local level.
Again, this should be left up to local/state law enforcement, like most other laws.
I don't see why the posting matters that much, but ok. Criminals will just know whether or not to look for a sign still lol.
Posting lets customers know. I'm not going into a bar that allows guns.
