quote: The loophole is that somebody at a gun show who sees a gun he wants but doesn't want to submit to an instant background check can have his friend buy it there for him. The loophole is that criminals know that they can choose more easily from a wider variety of guns at gun shows from private sellers.
That is called a straw purchase and each count will get you 10 years in jail. BTW if you havent realized it is currently illegal...

So what are the laws on purchasing a gun at a gun show? Are they the same as purchasing them from a retailer? Is there a background check when you buy a gun from a gun store or from a gun show? I've purchased guns from both and don't recall any sort of background check and got my guns right away from both.
