You cannot go online and purchase a firearm without having that gun shipped through a federal firearms licensee, and they will run a background check,” “Now, what many Democrats call the ‘gun show loophole’ is actually a loophole that allows private sales. Now, to fix that they would require — it would require a full gun registry. If I were to sell a 12-gauge shotgun to my nephew, that wouldn’t be registered through a federal firearms licensee. It would take a full gun registry” External link
