The AF screwed up. But those pesky loopholes lobbied by the NRA gives a way out. Gun shows and private sellers don't have to do background checks,
state or federal.
first that gun shows dont have to do background checks is FALSE
In IL (and I believe alot of other states) the dealers at the gun shows DO have to do background checks and any other paperwork just as if they were
at their stores.
Private citizens do not (be gun shows or a private sale) have to do background checks.
But what you dont seem to want to admit is that it is limited to INTERSTATE sales..
Add to that all states have laws that if the private seller KNOWINGLY sells to criminals, straw purchases , ect they can be held liable.
A private seller also has to follow FEDERAL LAW that states anyone under 21 cannot own a pistol and anyone under 18 cannot own any gun.
Last but not least GIVE ONE "MASS SHOOTING" was caused by someone who used "the gunshow loophole"?
sorry but your propaganda melts like an ice cube in tx under the heat of FACTS.
