This site shows what background checks are done with private sales in each state:

So, basically, none in Republican controlled states.
The people in question have an FFL (Federal Firearms License). If you read the first line of the section where the individual state regulations are listed, it says:Background Check When Seller Is Not a Licensed Dealer
The friends of which I was talking are licenced firearm dealers. They are therefore required to run a background check with every sale unless the purchaser has a carry license.
People who have licenses to carry have already undergone a more stringent background check and have to renew every 5 years. Also anyone with a CL must present the CL anytime a police officer requests to see it. It must be presented along with a a driver's license if pulled over for a driving infraction. They must be kept up to date. If the holder moves, the address must be promptly changed. Lost or stolen cards must be reported promptly.
There is no requirement for registration of firearms in my home state of Texas. It is legal to gift firearms to people who are not forbidden to possess them. Gifts of firearms to minors are only allowed with the permission of the parent or guardian. Handguns may not be owned by anyone under 18. It is legal to inherit firearms too.
Did you read the last line of the first paragraph?
Some states require background checks for private sales, usually through a licensed intermediary, but others have few to no regulations on private gun sales.
Some states require background checks on private sales. Other states have little or no regulations on private sales.
And when a person can murder 60 people in less than fifteen minutes from a hundred feet away or more, then we can talk about knife control. But, for now, we NEED gun control. Which is not the same as "ban them all" but the right does not understand that.
