    Just "walking into the store" and coming out with guns and ammo is certainly what a lot of liberals believe.

    So, a couple question to board liberals. (1) How many places in your town do you figure sell grenades as an "off the shelf item" like the New Yorker believes? (2) How many places do you think offer friendly self-service for long guns and hand guns?

        Either the point went over your head, or you simply don't realize that you mocked your own attempted comeback. If only the US could have restrictive gun laws like France & Russia mass shootings would never be a problem...... oh, wait.......

              Known as the "gun show loophole," most states do not require background checks for firearms purchased at gun shows from private individuals -- federal law only requires licensed dealers to conduct checks. Augusta, I'm not against guns, I own guns, as dose my brother and brother-in-law and my two grandsons, and love going hunting and trapping with those guys. I just think we can do more to prevent fire arms from getting into the hands of the wrong people. It's not political, I think it is common sense.

                This is the point I'm always trying to make but people are so obsessed with labels, all they ever see when I post is "SHUT UP LIBERAL!!!" or "SHUT UP PROGRESSIVE!!!!"

                There is not middle ground on any subject now because the narrative is Obama is the worst, HRC is even worse than that our guns are under siege but ISIS is gonna get us in the end..........................[​IMG]

                That's a sale between two private individuals. Has nothing to do with a gun show.

                  Careful, Liberals react violently when truth is used to counter their narrative......

                    Do we have documented cases of mass shooters buying their guns at shows using the mythical loophole?

                    Isn't it true almost all of these lunatics could have passed a background check no problem?

                    Gun shows allow private gun owners wishing to sell or trade a firearm access to large numbers of potential buyers and traders. In most states, those gun transfers are not regulated by law, this allows persons who would not be able to pass a background check to illegally obtain firearms.

                    In 33 states, private gun owners are not restricted from selling guns at gun shows. Buyers who purchase guns from individuals are not required to submit to the federal background checks in place for licensed dealers. Firearms can be obtained illegally as a result. Proponents of unregulated gun show sales say that there is no loophole; gun owners are simply selling or trading guns at the shows as they would do at their residence.

                    Mayors Against Illegal Guns group, hired private investigators to attend gun shows in Ohio, Nevada and Tennessee.

                    According to a report released, 22 of 33 private sellers sold guns to undercover investigators who informed them that they probably could not pass a background check, while 16 of 17 licensed sellers allowed straw purchases by the undercover investigators, a process through which a person prohibited from purchasing a firearm recruits someone to purchase the gun for them.

                    I would say these people put greed and profit above the safety of their fellow citizens.

                    Ox, I believe there is a federal law prohibiting agencies from conducting such studies.

                    So again. It's a sale between two individuals. No different than buying one from a friend. Now if you want to stop the sale of firearms between individuals just say so. But don't call it a loophole.

                      Isn't the very definition of a loophole a way to avoid legal procedures? I'm obviously not a gun owner. If Ox was really worried about me and gave me a call and said, "Hey, you atheist asshat, I hate your guts but I want you to have this gun so when 2bag's crazy ass wants to come kill you, you'll have protection," I could fork over some cash to him and have a gun without ever having to go through any background checks. Would that not be a loophole that I exploited to get a gun?

                      There is no loophole. Individuals are not required to perform a background check when selling a gun to another individual. Doesn't matter if they sell that gun at their house, a gun show or on the corner of the 7-11.

                      This is no different than if you go buy a new car from a dealer they won't let you drive off the lot unless you show proof of insurance but if you buy my car, I don't care. It is a private transaction.
