If you are doing nothing illegal, there is no reason to be paranoid of extended background checks, including for transfers within families. Why should anyone obtaining a weapon legally be exempt from a background check? Granted, those obtaining weapons illegally do not and they never will if obtaining them illegally. If I were selling a weapon to a friend, I would prefer they go through a check, I don't know everything about their life. They might have a restraining order against them, or have two DUI convictions in the last 5 years. They might have been in prison at some point in their life that I do not know of. Do you know every detail about every relative of yours?
