Tell, what is wrong with background checks for every gun sale? Well, this is what's wrong:
It's because it's not about the background checks. It's about control. It's about putting down the foundation for eventual confiscation.
But hey, let's compromise. It's all about the compromise. How bout background checks OR the presentation of a valid CCW? A CCW holder has had the background check already, so, no need. And you can show that in a private sale and leave the poor overburdened gov't alone. Or, when you get a background check it's good for a 3 months anywhere. Another shop, a gunshow, a private seller. You've gone 30 years without a conviction, what are the chances you caught a charge in the last month?
But no, that would create a situation where forms are not filled out and maybe filed in a database leading to defacto registration. And registration, historically, always, ALWAYS, leads to confiscation. Confiscation? I thought the 'gun-safety' types that used to wear the label 'gun-controller' didn't want to round up innocent people's guns? Well, you see, that's the point of compromise.
