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...

Why would he? Like every thread he posts in I'm sure he walked away thinking he won.

Yes there is. The guys flying the swastika at these gun shows will sell you anything for a twenty spot.

About the only thing you can buy at a gunshow for $20 is some jerky. Or possibly a fantasy dragon elf knife.

re: There is no such thing as a 'gunshow loophole'


i'm curious what the response will be

i know what the "gun show loophole" is, and that wasn't close to describing it

it's not an actual loophole. it's the fact that you can do private sales at a gunshow (the same as you can anywhere else)

it's not about straw purchases like rex described

but it's also not a loophole b/c it doesn't subvert the law at all and falls under the general gun transfer laws

So either rex pulled that out of his arse, or he was given false info by one of the websites he visits.

re: There is no such thing as a 'gunshow loophole'


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.
