On one hand, you should not feign ignorance of what I speak. I am pretty sure you know what I am talking about. If not, the Internet is a powerful thing, particularly when explored with a search engine such as Google. Do you have the Internet in your neigborhood? If so, try it (with Google) and you will have all kinds of information at your fingertips...
Gun shows in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Senator Frank R. Lautenberg
In all fairness, I appreciate the argument that gun shows are general venues for FFL dealers, which subject their customers to background checks; and the unchecked transactions involve "private sellers" engaged in "casual sales" (its not their business to sell guns). It is the nature of the private seller and how casual the sale really is that is the problem. An estimated 40% othf the gun market are casual sales.... and I certainly would not want to regulate the private market; though I would want to go after those that really are conducting business but hiding behind the "casual sale" shield.... many are.
