112th Congress: 2011-2012
A bill to ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the national instant criminal background check system and require a background check for every firearm sale.

Sponsor: Sen. Charles Schumer [D-NY]
Status: This bill is in the first step in the legislative process. Explanation: Introduced bills and resolutions first go to committees that deliberate, investigate, and revise them before they go to general debate. The majority of bills and resolutions never make it out of committee. [Last Updated: Nov 19, 2011 6:12AM]

I have a question about this, How the hell do they think they can actually enforce this? Many states don't require registration of guns so it is extremely difficult to track them. How can they prove that you have or have not always had the gun in question? If they go for the registration of guns thing, it is time to defend our rights (hopefully peaceful actions will work) or we WILL end up like the UK.

If this becomes law it won't end any private firearm sales. It will just make them all illegal.

Private sales should be just that, private. And it should be up to the individual on whether or not to sell to an individual. For instance, it's not considered a good idea to sell a gun to someone who offers to trade in crack rock.
