    background checks - I don't get it, dont we already have them

    Isn't there already federal background checks done on every gun purchase except for for private sales? Is this just more false info that they are putting out.. And when they say universal background checks don't they just mean federal, that again we already have?

    It's not so much that somewhere around 95% of all firearms transactions take place via BCs as much as it is the idea of making them universally mandatory...

    The gun grabber's version of universal background checks includes any time a gun passes from one person to another including private sales. If you want to loan your friend a rifle for hunting season, you would have to go to an FFL, do a background check on him, and pay the fees. When he gives it back to you, you go to the FFL, do a background check on yourself, and pay the fees. The exceptions in Oregon is immediate family or if you are physically with the person using your gun.

    Here in North Carolina and some other states you may do a face to face sale without a background check, the gun grabbers want to put a stop to that by requiring all sales go through FFLs.

    .... and, of course, the only way to truly enforce private sales background checks is to.... <drumroll> register all firearms.

    "Gun show loophole" is code for "all private sales/transfers". Government permission every time a gun passes from one set of hands to another.

    They passed that law in Nevada. It said that you have to have an FBI background check for a private transfer. The FBI said they would not do it, it was a state law and not their responsibility. So as it is the the state will not do a background check because the law states FBI. For sales from a gun shop all of the background checks are in place.

    Anyone remember the original “Red Dawn”, as the Russians invaded the town one of the first orders was “Go to the gun store and get all the 4473s, that way we know where all the guns are”. The universal background checks are a convenient way to force people to register guns for eventual confiscation.

    Ok so it seems that there are FBI checks on all guns purchased at gun shops and even gun shows unless it is one private citizen to another. correct?

    Depends what state you're in, but general speaking yes.

    Yes, this is very true and a lot of gun people don't realize this. Not only would all privately owned firearms have to be registered but a periodic inventory would have to be taken to prove that none were transferred without having gone through a BC. Next stop: confiscation.

    That's one version I've heard about, for sure. Totally unacceptable.
