  •  The "gun show loophole" is basically a problem (0+ / 0-)

    with tracking sales and enforcing laws.  Only licensed dealers can legally be accepted as gun show vendors.  Until gun dealers of all types are required to do serious background checks using a database that is current and includes such information as mental health adjudications, number and dates of previous firearms purchases and criminal backgrounds, and corresponding laws are tightened on gun sales and waiting periods, gun shows don't present any worse threat than any other sales outlet.

    "In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
