"Universal" Background Check Legislation Targets Law-Abiding Gun Owners for Persecution

Deceptively marketed to the public as a way to keep guns from dangerous people, "universal" background check legislation is instead a broadside against lawful firearm ownership in America, setting cruel traps for common and innocent firearm-related conduct and banning an entire class of law-abiding adults from certain gun purchases.

So-Called "Universal" Background Checks

Won't Stop Criminals from Obtaining Guns

Criminals, by definition, do not obey the law. And neither H.R. 8 nor S. 42 will force them to follow the law. Even anti-gun researchers have admitted that "universal" background checks are ineffective. 

Criminalize Private Transfers and Loans Between Friends and Family

H.R. 8 and S. 42 would make criminals out of law-abiding gun owners for simply loaning a firearm to a friend or some family members.

Are Unenforceable 

"Universal" Background Checks are not universal because criminals will never comply with legal requirements. According to the National Institute of Justice, "Universal" Background Checks are unenforceable without requiring complete gun registration.

“ So-called universal background checks will never be universal because criminals do not comply with the law. Instead of looking for effective solutions that will deal with the root cause of violent crime and save lives, anti-gun politicians would rather score political points and push ineffective legislation that doesn’t stop criminals from committing crimes. 

— Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA Executive Director
