All inclusive background checks is perhaps a better phrase - you MUST do a background check on someone to sell a gun, proof of that check is what makes the sale legal. It'll be perfect, tonnes of new jobs created over night in the department of fire arm background checks. Of course it'll make private sales nigh impossible, but you could sell to liscenced business buyers who on-sell to others.
Well, what about people, who pass on their guns to their children or grandchildren? My husband's grandfather was an avid antique gun collector and we have several of his guns, many from 1800's. My daddy has a Japanese made rifle, that his father got off a dead Japanese soldier in the Pacific during World War II. I would HOPE that such transfers as these would be okay under what you're saying. I have no problem with background checks in theory, I have had many background checks done on me and my husband since we both have bought guns. I'm just saying these types of transactions between family members, especially when a parent or grandparent or great-grandparent has left a gun to someone, they should be able to do that, don't you think?
