    My mistake, you are right. The attacks were made with a stolen gun.

    I seem to remember the attacks led to concern over gun shows...so maybe he bought some gun from one.


    I saw a YouTube video where a private investigator showed a woman reporter how to buy a gun from an ad - I think it was a craig's List.

    That is because gun control advocates push every narrative possible for every shooting even if it is completely unrelated.

    It is the private sale loophole, not the gun show loophole - though some gun shows allow private sales. Dealers don't get away with pretending to be private for long - and this would be limited to used guns they bought off-the-books. Most firearms I've bought were private sales, I would pay more for a private sale and usually would decline if it wasn't. I buy far more than I sell and that is a very small number - 0, 1, 2, 3 a year.

    This is from the U.S Bureau of Justice Statistics.Clearly criminals don't get their guns at gun shows and there is no loophole. Criminals do not buy guns at gun shows in alarming rates, certainly not alarming compared to where a lot of criminals get their guns, illegal sources. In fact most criminals in Chicago get their guns not even from gun stores by rather just their friends or gang markets.

    This is something I do not get about the common sense gun control reformists, why do you want to ban gun shows?Enough of this hysteria
    Massive loophole. That illegal gun came from somewhere

    If we're talking gang activity, they often have people with clean records buy the guns for them. This is illegal as I understand it but hard to police.

    It's a ruse just like their claim of "40000 victims of gun violence every year" as Bernie said tonight. What they don't mention is that 2/3s of those "victims" are suicides. "Gun control" isn't about saving lives, it's about controlling people.
