But the buyer is not, and if the doctor doesn't do somethings to ensure that their keeping proper safety measures they might not either.
I'm still not sure I follow, and more precisely I don't get how that's an issue of enforcement.
Even assuming that the "doctor" follows the safety measures dictated by law, there's the possibility it could still be stolen. Consequently, if one is so worried about the items being acquired illegally, it confuses me that the system skips the rather obvious step of having the "pharmacist" asking the "doctor" directly.
And for that matter, I do know several doctors and I do know of cases of prescription forgery. These are pretty hard to pull of unless the doctor (and often the pharmacist) is willingly involved.
If you have such a system/society, that a fair amount of illegally acquired "legal" guns would be done through these means, then quite frankly you have worse problems than lax enforcement - which, at best, would be a symptom, not the cause.

I misspoke. And for that I apologize. I didn't correct myself because I felt the point I was actually trying to make would still stand.
However I feel the need to point out that nitpicking and sidestepping the issue won't actual help us discuss the issue. If you believe I got something wrong, by all means feel free to correct me, but don't turn that into your sole argument.
