I fully admit I haven't educated myself on the entirety of the bill- however- the question at hand was about extending background checks to be required for private sales as well- and this, I do agree with. This is beyond politics and down to common sense- I'm a strong conservative and 2A supporter- the fact is there is no DOWNSIDE to a background check for a private sale. If you're a law-abiding citizen- you don't have an issue with one at an FFL, you shouldn't have a problem with one period. No registries, no records- just a background check. There is nothing wrong with that, and it keeps everybody safe without stripping lawful citizens of their rights.

I'm with Lucas. As a C&R holder and someone who buys, sells, and trades guns regularly, I always insist on background checks at FFL 01's. It protects me from liability and is really, truly the least I can do before sending a stranger off into society with a gun. It won't prevent every incident, but it will force those who can't buy a gun legally into the shadows to deal with other criminals and not just over the boarder to a less responsible state. This paranoia has gone too far; background checks are not a gateway to confiscation or Red Dawn scenarios. Since they'd be mandatory, I would like to see a price cap or perhaps an office connected to local law enforcement that conducted these checks for $5-10 max; dealers take advantage of these laws to overcharge for background checks ($40-60 sometimes).

I appose anything that impacts my constitutional rights as an American citizen. How is it that we can say it's ok to require background checks to exercise one constitutional right but, have a conniption if I was to recommend that we do background checks when voting? Yes, voting can be as dangerous as a firearm remember, Hitler was voted into office as were many tyrants. The only way you can truly have universal background checks would be to institute a national registry. Australians went along with a national registry and look where they are today. People intent on doing harm to others will find a way whether it with a firearm or a homemade bomb.

Only a naive or ignorant (aka-stupid) person believes crooks and killers will submit to a background check!!!

There’s Contraband in prisons and how are those gun free zones working out? Have you heard of Illegal drugs?

Lucas and Paul are wrong - there's a big downside. Giving it up an ounce at a time is still giving it up. The NRA has sold us down the river, a bit at a time. I am a law abiding citizen, and I AM 2A, and I don't appreciate the regulation that is already in place. Law enforcement hasn't applied the background check that's already in place - so what good would it do to extend it?!? Security officers sit by while shots are fired inside the schools (and establishments) they are hired to protect. I'm not paying the government a dime to conduct my own business and I will not just needlessly hand over more authority. There's little we can do about current controls put on new manufacture and business regulations. Repeal NFA-34. Allow teachers (that want to) to carry, and allow them to train with local PD, and abolish all gun-free zones.

More of the Democrats getting their camel's nose under my tent. Just a defacto firearms registry that'll make the next steps in their march to disarm the populace easier to achieve. I say no way... cold dead hands and all that.

If the Blues can go away claiming they've done something and we don't have to face another Scary-Looking-Guns-Ban I'd have to consider it a win.

Why would I support expanded background checks when I want RPGs sold at Walmart?

Comment made by Mitch on 2019-09-26 04:36:51
Dear lord, 15%+ support it on here? With friends like these, who needs enemies? No, government shouldn't have any involvement if I sell a rifle to my neighbor. It's a conflict of interest for government to decide who owns guns. They want us disarmed and replaced by international communists.

If I want to give or sell to those known to me WHY I THE WORLD do I need a background check and pay for it? My niece and nephews are Lawyer, Fireman, Doctor, & financial Adviser , all of which require a background check for their professional licence, like your CCW, 03 FFL, Pilots license and so on. Go ahead sell me on the need spent more money an another BGC! I'll wait. Meanwhile the number of bad guys you a likely the stop from getting a gun is minuscule and not cost/time effective for FBI, Gun Dealer. Theives will sell stolen guns the other bad guys and never insist on BGC's. Inforce< in full, the existing laws, stop pleading down the gun charges

Consider the volume of background checks, it was something like 700,000 last Black Friday. Private citizens have no idea how to do these, and the FBI would be swamped with poorly done checks, and would probably exercise the 3 day delay option in many cases. Then we should preserve the OK numbers given us? I simply do not see people doing it with guns the ATF does not already know we own. I am opposed to just about ANY more gov't controls, on almost all subjects. Jefferson would be blown away at how much our government controls us.

I agree we should have extensive background checks for all elected officials. I'm not sure if they are qualified to have armed guards.They seem scary and dangerous.

Comment made by Gordon on 2019-09-29 18:55:40
The universal background check is unenforceable without universal registration, which is what they will want next. We all know what registration leads to. Manchin and his buddies can pound sand.
