You will have to prove that you are not a felon and not "legally prohibited from buying" a firearm...what are some of the things that will prohibit you from making a purchase?"It’s time for Congress to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun...If you want to buy a gun — whether it’s from a licensed dealer or a private seller — you should at least have to show you are not a felon or somebody legally prohibited from buying one." ~ Barack Obama 1-16-13

Seriously, if that's what they mean by universal background checks, then big fricken deal. We're already "inconvenienced" with these questions when we acquire a permit anyway in most cases. Now, if it then means the serial numbers of every weapon I purchase gets sent to the ATF, then I have a problem. But answering questions to prove I'm legally cleared to have said weapons, I don't see a problem with it.
Universal means Federal. Federal means, they know who has what. No thanks.
I say a big huge NO.
I am surprised that I see people here who don't understand what the "gun show loop hole" really is.
I have never bought a gun from a dealer at a gun show that I didn't have a background check. This is not the purpose. The REAL purpose is to make gun checks for PRIVATE sales. Once you buy a gun it is considered "private property". You are allowed to sell or give away private property. If they tack on this "loop hole" law it means you can't sell your weapon without a background check. You can't gift one with out doing a background check on the giftee. If you leave weapons to your heirs after you die....they have to get background checks before they can claim their inheritance.
THIS IS NOT PERTAINING TO DEALERS ONLY TO REGULAR CITIZENS.
This is not the "innocent" act that they are trying to tell you. It is a BIG restriction on your Constitutional Rights to do with YOUR private property as you wish. What do you think they will do next?

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
Don't we already have enogh laws and rules. I think the federal govt should run stuff they were set up to run and leave us and the states alone. I'm tired of being legislated to.

Who's providing these statistics? 1 million prohibited possessors thwarted from buying, courtesy of the NICS. I don't buy it.
Another stat is the '40% of all gun purchases are made without the background checks', etc. If the purchase was made without a check, then where is the record of the transaction? It's impossible to know because there are no official records kept.
I know the 40% stat came from the Brady Bunch, and I'd be willing to bet they are the source for the 1 million stat, too.

You demand I have a "mental health" certificate to qualify for weaponry?And if you have to provide a "mental health certificate" to qualify??? Universal background check has not been defined yet. Just like universal health care was was un-read when congress voted on it.
Then, you provide a "psychological 'crystal ball' validity" certificate to show you have any basis for judging to a degree that matters. And, even then I might disagree with you. And so might a high percentage of reasonable others lined up to judge your judgmental take on things.
And therein lies the inanity of this, unless based on objective standards that aren't toyed with like moveable finish lines.
