Just bought a gun from a close friend. No background check. He is a former LEO and has known me for 2 decades. Nothing we did was irresponsible. I’m no felon. He isn’t either. And I got a nice new (nah, not your business what it is). Or my father giving me a (free gun) on “permanent loan” until he needs it (just a hunting weapon that he doesn’t use anymore but I do). No felonies from either of us. Not exactly irresponsible.
This is why background checks are useless. One need not purchase a firearm from a licensed dealer in order to gain access to a gun.
