    background checks, just not in the way that most are thinking of it.  The focus has been on a per-transaction check which I think ultimately won't achieve the goal unless it were accompanied by registration, which I don't support.  I think that there is a better way through expanding the permit system.  I am planning on writing a post about this subject soon.  In a nutshell, I would advocate you need a permit to have a gun, buy ammo, etc, and the permit is where the background check is done.
