The lady who recently wrote the Open Forum criticizing gun show sales reflected a fundamental misunderstanding of the rules applicable to gun shoes - a misunderstanding intentionally fueled by some anti-gun politicians and anti-gun news media. Some of them refer to it as the "gun show loophole", but in realty they have found another loophole to shoot the truth. There is no gun show loophole.
Any purchase from a gun dealer at a gun show requires the same instant background check as a purchase at the dealer's principal place of business. Limited transfers between private individuals do not require the approval of the government so if one wishes to gift a firearm to a child or grandchild, fortunately that can be done without the government's blessing.
This fall support candidates who pledge to protect liberty, not those who promise to steal from others in the community and give you part of the loot in exchange for your vote and your liberty.
