background check clarification[edit]

Can we get some clarity on "states that require background checks" vs states that don't? Pretty sure the background check for purchasing from an FFL is run federally through NICS using the Form 4473 in all 50 states. Is this referring to the level of scrutiny for concealed carry permits or something else? Because it doesn't align with reality when taken to be about purchasing a firearm.

Our source's source for that claim is a broken link. It's now hard to assess what exactly they meant. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 16:13, 28 January 2019 (UTC)
