no; the gun show loophole. I'm sure you wouldn't sell a gun to a lunatic.

I wouldn't sell a gun to anyone I don't know via a private sale, to tell you the truth. But that's just me. There is nothing wrong with any of my immediate family purchasing a gun from me without a background check. If they want to buy one from a dealer, they'll have to go through the NICS as the law reads now. But we don't need government involved in every firearm transaction. Besides, the only way to make universal background checks effective, is to institute a national firearms registry. I draw the line there for several reasons. Registration leads to confiscation, ALWAYS. Plus, the cost benefit ration for a national registry would prohibit it, economically. Look what happened to Canada if you don't believe me.
