    It varies to some extent, by state, but all licensed dealers are already required to abide by the same laws at gun shows that they do in their store.

    And, as it happens, in Texas, at least, private sales are bound by the same laws whether they are at a gun show or not.

    That being the case, you seem to be asking for more regulation at a gun show than would exist somewhere else.  Or am I misreading you?  Again, trying to be accurate in the discussion.

    As an aside, I wouldn't be particularly against it if one were to require NICS checks at gun shows (at the nominal fee you describe, at any rate), but not the storage (I see no evidence that waiting periods do anything, but that's a different discussion).  I don't think it would do much good, but I wouldn't particularly fight such, if that makes sense.

    I'll be away from the computer for a few hours, so it will be a while before I can respond to any response on your part.

    Yes, I often dress as a pirate. Your point?
