Just got a part time job and underwent a background check. And if I buy a gun? [View all]

As some of you know, we recently got my wife's daughter over here to the USA and as such, we now (obviously) have some additional expenses. So I decided to get a part time job for some extra money. I am driving a fork truck on a loading dock unloading semi trailers. And in order to get this part time job, I had to submit to a background check. No big deal, I have a clean record, etc.
But my point is, if I had to undergo a background check to work part time on a loading dock, why don't some gun owners have to undergo one to own a firearm? Seems to me that if a person is clean, they won't have much to worry about, and if one is violent and/or mentally ill, they shouldn't have a gun anyway. Just my two cents worth.
