Mandatory background checks for all
firearms transactions would be ineffective, thus leading to additional laws and requirements to 'fix' the deficiency. You don't really believe that people who currently provide firearms to their disqualified friends or relatives would go to dealers for background checks and then say "Oops, I can't do that." So mandatory background checks would not be effective for private transactions unless there was another law, such as requiring all firearms to be registered. Even registration would not eliminate prohibited private transactions, so there would have to be even another law, maybe prohibiting private transactions entirely.
