Look at it this way, how do gun owners benefit from having a background check run on them every time they buy a gun? They don't. I, for example, know I'm not a criminal. So the background check doesn't tell me a single thing I don't already know. The background check for gun purchases was supposed to be a "public safety" issue. If so, then the public needs to pay for it.

Background checks do not save lives. Get rid of the redundant state police check.
