Imagine a grandfather who wants to give a family shotgun to his 12-year-old grandson having to do a background check on his grandson.
Or a friend having to do a background check on his best buddy before lending him a hunting rifle.
Or having to do a background check on your own mom before you could give her one of your guns for protection.
That’s what “universal background checks” do. They turn traditional innocent conduct into a criminal offense.
Universal background checks are background checks on every transfer, sale, purchase, trade, gift, rental, and loan of a firearm between any and all individuals.
All background checks must be conducted through a federally licensed dealer. Universal background checks have nothing to do with gun shows â€“ they are about you.
It is already a felony to be engaged in the business of buying and selling firearms and ammunition without having a federal firearm dealers license.
It is already a crime for a federally licensed dealer to sell a gun without doing a background check â€“ that’s all dealers, everywhere, including at retail stores, gun shows, and flea markets. Further, it is already a felony for any private person to sell, trade, give, lend, rent or transfer a gun to a person you know or should have known is not legally allowed to own, purchase or possess a firearm.
The penalty for selling a gun to a person who is a criminal, mentally ill, mentally incompetent, alcohol abuser or drug abuser is a 10-year felony. It is even a felony to submit false information on a background check form for the purpose of purchasing a firearm.
