  • Patent number: 8898951
    Abstract: A fishing lure includes a leading lure body shaped like a fish; and a trailing lure body shaped like a fish. The leading lure body includes a passage therethrough to enable a fishing line to slidably pass through the passage for connection to the trailing lure body. The trailing lure body includes a front portion and a curved front surface. The front portion of the trailing lure body is weighted such that the trailing lure body tends to sink front portion first in water. The curved front surface of the trailing fishing lure facilitates a swimming motion for the trailing lure body when the trailing lure body moves through water, and tends to lift the trailing lure body if the trailing lure body is pulled through water.

The system and method queries the electronic background check system for the response and receives the response from the electronic background check system. The system and method further generates a command to update the database with the received response. System and method may also include communicating information related to a firearm transaction to an electronic background check system that contains background check information. The information can be related to a transferee of the firearm transfer.
