The answer is No

I received a media request for comment on background checks recently. Turns out it was form a company selling background check software, Ident Solutions.  I don’t know if their FedCheck program is any good, but they published my remarks on their website:

“There is absolutely no evidence that more background checks would reduce “gun violence” as the vast majority of firearms used in crimes are not purchased legally to begin with. Advocates pushing for them know this and are not interested in solving problems. They coined the term “gun violence” to stigmatize guns and gun owners, implying that private firearm ownership in and of itself is responsible for society’s problems.”
