Let’s see how this will work...
You walk into a gun show with a gun, by the time you finish the first isle you may have traded with another visitor and got some cash to boot.
Then you see some visitor with a firearm you like better, and trade for it.
Then as you continue you see someone else who likes your gun and you trade for it.
By the time you are finished with the show you may have traded 5 or 6 times.
Do you need a background check for each of these transactions if you don’t buy from a private dealer with a table?
How is the government supposed to know your trades unless they have dogged your every step?
Now, think of a show with three thousand tables and two miles of isles. Are the feds going to watch every person to see how they trade in the isle?
If they do, then the gun shows will lose lots of visitors and deals will be made in parking lots and alley ways nearby.
Sounds a lot like how healthcare is going to be conducted in this country soon.
The government wants to control every aspect of your day-to-day dealings. They want to control how much water you get to shower in the morning, how many calories you consume at each meal, how much fuel you use to get to and from the office, how much money you spend on meals out, how much you spend on groceries, how much time you spend on your phone and browsing the Internet, what sites you visit on the Internet, with whom you associate, what types of pets you have, how much electricity you use...
What makes you think they don't want to control when and what you trade, regardless as to whether or not that item is legal?
MY thinking precisely. I have seen a plethora of these transactions conducted in the parking lots afterwards, or numbers traded in case the person does not get a better price. Ridiculous.
The next step will be to require background checks for all private sales and after that confiscation.
If the government is so sure that background checks are effective, then how about retroactive background checks on all the weapons purchased under the Fast & Furious program that were given to the Mexican drug cartels!
“...deals will be made in parking lots and alley ways nearby....”
I’m guessing that’s how 93% of the illegal guns used for murders/robberies/gangbanging happens, anyway. This miniscule 7% breaks down in numerous other ways, including some kids getting ahold of parents’ unsecured firearms.
