    Right, that has been our experience since federal background checks became law in 1994!

    If such a bill went through, would anything be off limits for congress?

    We have had a federal law requiring background checks for licensed dealers across state lines since 1994.

    They said one was incarcerated by a neighbor but clearly did nothing to obtain him did they - guess they didn't try very hard. But then you'd never
    hold them accountable for that anyway because dead American's don't matter to you only BHO's popularity is important.

    Licensed dealers are involved in interstate commerce, the average Joe selling a gun to his friend is not. Why do you think the 1994 bill wasn't universal?

    I've read that it is proposed to require background checks at gun shows and internet sales, but I've not seen any proposals to prevent a friend from selling to a friend. Link to this proposal please?

    I guess you are too ignorant of gun dealerships to know that they are subject to unannounced inspections
