There is no such thing as a “gun show loophole”.....in my state, it is not illegal for a private citizen to sell a weapon to another citizen, whether in his home, in a grocery store parking lot, or at a Gun Show.
Common sense dictates that the seller should exercise due diligence in determining whether the buyer is legally allowed to own a weapon, but it is not a requirement that the seller do a NICS check on the buyer.
The moniker is specious bullshit and just a canard to excite the easily excitable..
With all due respect, that’s not all the phrase is. It was designed to obfuscate the true purpose of the gun grabbers: to ban private sales. It’s incumbent on all of us to point out their lies, and at least try to deflate the free ride that they’ve been getting.
Gun show loophole? OK, fine, require FFL’s for all transactions at gun shows. But preserve private sales at all costs.
And folks, it’s not just your guns you need to protect. It’s your children and grandchildren.
I'm glad that the "majority of Americans support sensible gun control." /sarc
