    I’m a brand new gun owner. I went to the store, they did a background check and I got my gun. But I keep reading in the paper (yes I read the newspaper!) that all these legislators are calling for universal background checks. Don’t we already have background checks? What am I missing?

    If you decided to buy a gun from your friend, there is no required background check

    They make sure you haven't committed any crimes on other planets.


    But really I don't know either.

    What they’re after is recording every gun out there so they know who has what and where it is.
    By requiring a background check the system will eventually locate all firearms so the guns can be confiscated when the .gov wants to.
    Once UBC is passed they’ll slowly increase penalties for non compliance.
    They’ll also make minimum qualifications to own more difficult.
    Long term it will be so difficult (legal paperwork&expense)most will not bother with trying to own firearms.
    Over time the guns will be collected as the owners die off.

    exactly

    Universal Background Checks will only work with a 100% firearm registry.

    I’m not willing to give any governing body that info

    Naaa.
    Too expensive.
    Legit gun owners pay taxes. Can't kill'em off. No money to steal.
    Besides there is the wear and tear on the JackBoots.
    Beancounters don't want to pay out PTSD and disability claims resulting from messy retrievals.
    Let's not forget the ever possible mega-payout lawsuit. Less money to steal.
    Dynamic stuff will be minimal.
    They're playing the long game.
    Everybody dies. That's when the guns will be turned over because its just too much of a hassle for the remaining family to keep them.

    Sales between two private individuals (neither is a dealer) do not currently require NICS checks.

    This is the correct answer, no bloviating.
