In America, a person is only a criminal after they get convicted. If we pass universal background checks, those punks want a gun will just get their buddies with clean records to buy one for them.
I know what you are saying. The can be got illegally and if they are caught they would have to face the courts.
That's like saying there is no point in being required to have a driving licence or insurance because some people drive without a licence or don't know the law. Ignorance of the law is not a defence in the courts.

That's the same in most countries innocent until proven guilty.
