    AFAK, all states that issue CCL permits require background checks to get one.  

    Your claim about background checks on purchases is false though.  All transfers from Type 1 and Type 7 FFLs to non licence holders must be background checked.  Transfers between non-FFL holders instate are regulated by state law.  Transfers across state lines by non-ffl holders are illegal.  

    If you have a Type 3, there are different rules (I don't have time go go into them here).  

    I want all transfers to be background checked.  I did not like the legislation that the senate considered because it made major portions of the FOPA86 non-operative (travel across state lines with firearms).  

    I hope congress tries again and gets it right.  The big problem with background checks is that they will not catch the most dangerous people who are mentally ill and have had no contact with the mental health system.
