1. I think you may have missed a couple of factors here.

 

1. Private sellers (unless they are purposefully corrupt) don't WANT to sell to those who would fail a background check. They love firearms and they love the hobby culture. The vast majority of them would never sell to someone who may bring disgrace to their group. As for the reason they don't do BG checks now, well you know that - they can't. If you opened the system up to every private seller and ever dealer at gun shows without making it GD unwieldy, I can guarantee 99% of them would gladly use it.

2. FFL license holders aren't receiving "corporate welfare" by any definition I know of. Perhaps you can elaborate on this. I think I know where you are going, but I don't want to assume.
