this is a great idea, Im going to go get a FFL, and do NOTHING but background checks and transfers. Im going to charge anywhere between $50 and $75 per NICS. whether your cleared or not I get paid.

If this new background check law goes through, I see a whole new industry open up.

So now they are trying to spin this as a good thing for dealers because it will bring more people in the door? Yeah ok

Yes, because business has been so slow for the dealers for the past five years.......;)

I'm noticing that in all of this, there's still nothing in place about remitting the firearm back to the owner if he decides not to complete the ftf sale back to him/her self without having to have a 2nd back ground check on themselves... I can only imagine if any sort of universal back ground check passes in any form the s**t storms that'll ensue when a seller gets a delay upon a return of their firearm to their possession.

It will also be a boon because the Toomey bill will outlaw unlicensed transfer of in state firearms to anyone that isn't an immediate family member without going through NCIS.

SEC. 122. FIREARMS TRANSFERS.

"(B) the transfer is made between an unlicensed transferor and an unlicensed transferee residing in the same State, which takes place in such State, if-
"(i) the Attorney General certifies that State in which the transfer takes place has in effect requirements under law that are generally equivalent to the requirements of this section; and
"(ii) the transfer was conducted in compliance with the laws of the State;
"(C) the transfer is made between spouses, between parents or spouses of parents and their children or spouses of their children, between siblings or spouses of siblings, or between grandparents or spouses of grandparents and their grandchildren or spouses of their grandchildren, or between aunts or uncles or their spouses and their nieces or nephews or their spouses, or between first cousins, if the transferor does not know or have reasonable cause to believe that the transferee is prohibited from receiving or possessing a firearm under Federal, State, or local law; or
"(D) the Attorney General has approved the transfer under section 5812 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
Current law

Q: To whom may an unlicensed person transfer firearms under the GCA?

A person may sell a firearm to an unlicensed resident of his State, if he does not know or have reasonable cause to believe the person is prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms under Federal law. A person may loan or rent a firearm to a resident of any State for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes, if he does not know or have reasonable cause to believe the person is prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms under Federal law. A person may sell or transfer a firearm to a licensee in any State. However, a firearm other than a curio or relic may not be transferred interstate to a licensed collector.
[18 U.S.C. 922(a)(3) and (5), 922(d), 27 CFR 478.29 and 478.30]
