"IMO we are talking about eventually, if not now, requiring any transfer of a firearm to require a federal background check whether the transfer is; a private sale, a gift, a loan, a bequest, etc."

I agree. That's one objective of what Obama is going to announce.

However, it seems to me that in order for private transfers - especially among family members - to be effectively subject to such regulation, first guns must be registered; all guns.

Otherwise, how would they know that Uncle Bill gave me the old M1 carbine yesterday and that we failed to background check? I could just say I've had it so long I can't remember when I obtained it (and, anyways, I obtained years before the new law).

Then again, "effectiveness" may not be as important as legacy, but I remain suspicious that registration is of all firearms is next (if not now) and that confiscation, at least of certain classes of arms, would follow under a Clinton administration.
