I would never sell a gun to anybody without a trip to the nearest FFL dealer for a background check anyway.

I believe some information is recorded during background checks about the particular gun that can constitute "backdoor gun registration", but I don't know much about that. Could someone educate me?

I'm not "advocating" mandatory checks, but if I had to choose between that and feinsteins raging hard on for a "new and improved" AWB complete with a magazine ban...
It's a problem because if you give an inch,they'll take a mile. It's a baby step toward a total gun ban, an infringement on the second amendment. As of right now there is no federal log of guns/owners. The only documentation is with the ffl that the gun was originally purchased from, and it is only there for 10 years.
