    A spin off of the other thread where I have asked numerous times and not a single right winger has answered, is if you support the gun show loophole.

    For those that may not know, under current federal law if you wish to purchases a firearm, you have to be run in a background check to make sure you are not a felon, been convicted of a violent crime, been in a mental institution, etc,..before they give the go ahead to sell that person a weapon. However under the "gun show loophole", there are not background checks at all.

    That's right, absoutly nothing. A violent thug fresh out of the penitentiary, a terrorist, or a nutcases ready to commit the next sandy hook could go down to their local gun show, or find a classified ad selling a firearm and they could purchase deadly weapons, with no questions asked.

    Selling a firearm to a felon is already illegal, even if you are NOT a federal firearms dealer.

    and what is the difference between a craiglist ad and some guy arranging a street buy for you?

    More restrictions on legal gunowners, and no effect on the illegal gun trade.

    How stupid can the gun control advocates get? This is comical.

    Would you care to reflect reality, I was at a gun show last weekend. Of the thousands of weapons there I might have been able to purcahse a dozen or so that were not being sold by dealers. The so called gun show loop hole only applies to private sales and are few and far between. Why do you folks try to mislead people, is your case really that weak? Never mind we both know the answer is yes.

    That's how the loophole works. While the felon will be committing another felony by owning the gun, the seller is good to go as they do not have to ask any questions or ask the buyer to undergo a background check.

    There is this radical left-wing nut job, Christopher Dorner who used to be a cop for the LAPD on the loose. This radical leftist has killed 3 people. In order to become a cop, he had to go through a far more extensive background check than what one has to go through in order to purchase a firearm. Alot of good that background check did for Dorner.

    I think that they really believe what the media is telling them.

    A violent thug fresh out of the penitentiary, a terrorist, or a nutcase would not go to a gun show to buy a gun, they would get one off the streets.
