Yes it would be impossible to enforce background checks on private sales.
Firearm dealers are only required to keep a copy of the FFL 4473 form filled out by the buyer for 20 years. This form with the buyer’s information and firearm make, model and serial number are kept with the firearm dealer in a binder and the information is never given to the ATF unless requested in a criminal investigation.
