I’m the other person in the home . I have passed the background check for guns.
I agree with the prior two answers. The most important difference being that most likely as part of the foster care background they will be wanting to speak with reference - people that actually know you. During a background for firearms they are just running your name through the national data base for convictions or unresolved arrests.
Whenever you purchase a firearms in Oregon you have to pass both an Oregon and Federal background check. Usually it will be similar to any other background check, but with gun purchases the government is only looking for prohibited factors, not overall character like would matter for foster care. So while someone may be able to purchase a firearm they may not be 'a good candidate' in the eyes of the state for foster care.
The most important thing to do is to seal or expunge any old arrests or convictions prior applying to be a foster parent.
The information that appears on the background check is the same -no matter what the reason is for the background check. I think you are asking whether the standards for being able to own a gun are the same as for being a caregiver; they are not necessarily the same.
