  •  The gun show loop hole is also part myth (3+ / 0-)

    At issue is whether or not private individuals, not FFLs, not licensed dealers at gun shows, may perform transactions and under what circumstances.  This is an issue that is embedded up to it's elbows in state law with a myriad of variations.  

    It is also problematic that misinformation and fear drive the issue.  Contrary to the belief of some, it is not true that someone can just declare something a "private sale" and instantly no BC is required.

    It is much like the so called Internet Sale Loophole where everyone points to the SELLER not performing a BC but fails to mention the seller is not the party responsible for the BC which happens on the receiving end.
