While the gun owners and gun sellers are offering facile inane bullshit like "if guns kill people how does anyone come out of a gun show alive?" the NRA and the gun lobby is spending millions to keep the lax laws the way they are.Gun show vendors require background checks when selling guns, sort of.All licensed dealers do check your criminal history and it usually only takes a few minutes, said Mike Reber of Arizona Arms.However, private dealers, people who sell their individual guns to buyers at gun shows, don't have to perform such a check as long as they're "reasonably sure you're not a felon," Reber told ABC15.Reber has a booth this weekend at the "Crossroads of the West Gun Show" in Glendale, and is expecting a large turnout.
For years we've been hearing ridiculous arguments justifying the private-sale loophole, and what's been done? Nothing.
Is it going to change? What's your opinion?
