Found an interesting tidbit.
I found this law today while reading through the state weapons regs. It effectively imposes responsibility on the seller to background check when selling a firearm.
Sec. 46.14. FIREARM SMUGGLING. (a) A person commits an offense if the person knowingly engages in the business of transporting or transferring a firearm that the person knows was acquired in violation of the laws of any state or of the United States. For purposes of this subsection, a person is considered to engage in the business of transporting or transferring a firearm if the person engages in that conduct: (1) on more than one occasion; or (2) for profit or any other form of remuneration.

I don't see that it applies to background checks, more to dealing in "known" illegally aquired firearms, such as selling one to someone you "know" is a felon or otherwise prohibited from owning/possessing firearms. Regardless, according to the statute, a "one-time" transaction would not be in violation.

That has nothing to do with background checks

And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

The key word here is "knowingly"...
I have always sold (when I rarely do) preferred selling to permit holders and make copy of the individual's driver's license and permit.

The test is an "or" test:
(1) on more than one occasion
(2) for profit or remuneration
Either might snag you if one "knowingly engages in the business of transporting or transferring a firearm that the person knows was acquired in violation of the laws of any state or of the United States"
So you must know and it must have been acquired illegally
IMHO not to worry............
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
