Private owners are not required to do background checks in most states. And as I've previously said, I wouldn't necessarily be against examining whether changing that would be a benefit. But since the background check costs money, it's going to be a hard sell for the private gun seller to submit themselves to it willingly and make less money on the gun sale. And there are so many guns already in private hands, that it wouldn't be hard to find somebody willing to overlook the background check and make money on it.
